A sorry state of affairs

It is not often I recommend articles by people I do not know, but this is one worthy of reading by free minded people...Rendition Of Christ

The links on David Limbaugh's website are worth investigating. As a minority resident of a Blue State, I do appreciate Christians like D. Limbaugh having a presence on the Internet. Maybe someone here would like his site, too.
