Religion and Politics. Two things you're not supposed to talk about. Well, I like to talk and write about both. I call myself a conservative Christian. Who knows what that means to some people. Some might think I'm a crazy right-wing anti-abortion guy who clings to his gun and Bible. I do have a couple of each but I'm not crazy and I have some very liberal friends.

The series of posts at this site is one of the many parts of this tapestry of prose and poetry I refer… Continue
