I’ve been spending my free time recently researching and studying one of the “HOT BUTTON” issues in today’s America, The LGBT Civil Rights Movement. I think, that I have finally made a decision about where I stand on this entire matter. I’m sure that, if you’ve read some of my previous material, you know I am no stranger to controversy, and though I suppose that, what will be said will not be too dissimilar from previous posts, you’ll find that, though content and subject differs, the same subtle principle remains.

You try to make amends for the things that you’ve done wrong. You try to live differently. Take an inventory, and then you take control of the things you can and you work hardest on those.”
He continued: “Just as I don’t have faith in anything [I mentioned], my faith grows in my family, and in God. I raise my kids and make sure I’m listening as closely as I can. This is where we’re supposed to be. Faithless in everything that man has created, and putting our faith and our time and our energy into everything that God has created.”
