Timothy McPherson commented on a post on Blogger.
Most of the organizations you list here, with the exception of the EWTN organization, are listed as hate groups. There is more to Christianity that trying to defend it. When we begin defending Christianity, then we have forgotten why we are here. We are here to serve, not defend God. God can do that alone without our help.

Um, I felt the Bern.
I'm entering new territory here:  telling you about my experience at a political rally. It's new for me because when I was an officer in The Salvation Army (clergy), I was not allowed to express my views politically through social media. So as a disclaimer,...
