It's got you calling people "Freaks" and that they need to be "silenced". Not healthy at all.

Exactly. People who attack sites without reading the article to see the facts are willfully blind. Now, WaldoKitty, what say you?

So your solution is to propose a religious test for public office? No religious can hold office?

I don't like Franklin and I didn't care for his old man either. Too chummy with Richard (behind every Watergate there's a Milhouse) Nixxon.

No one cares if you're religous.

We DO care if you break the Kennedy rule. You know, mixing your religion with your office.

What kind of cretin who pretends to be a moral leader would even think of uttering something like that. Wonder how he would feel if his daughter was involved?

These religious freaks need to be silenced... they are a burr under the saddle of decency.
Anyone who disagrees with Franklin Graham on this is a "christian in name only" and should be run out of the church. Rape is one of the sacraments of the New Faith and their deity, Big Orange.

Extreme evangelicals with radical right-wing views are a danger to our political system, thatís all Iím saying, and it has become much worse with Trump in office!

Why any woman would belong to such a religion defies logic. These religions are a scourge on civilization.
Someday I'll be able to rep you again!

Seems odd for someone on the left to attack someone's freedom of speech, doesn't it? Oh wait, this is 2018-the left does NOT support free speech any longer, I forgot.

Makes you wonder why they are so fixated on this old man.

Imagine if 300 employees at Jiffy Lube (all around the country, or pick another company if you like) were found to have molested young boys (and hundreds of other employees were under suspicion) wouldn't you think there was something evil happening within this company? Wouldn't they likely be out of business?

I haven't heard of the Catholic Church going out of business, though.

The only way to do that is to vote BLUE in November.

In 1958...I mean 2018 there's literally no difference between the Southern Baptist Convention and the GOP. Voting Republican is voting for religious rule.
