TOLERANCE?

Many of us love to watch Duck Dynasty. The reason? They are plain folks who became wealthy doing what they love and are Bible reading, God fearing people. Phil Robertson should have known better than to give an interview to GQ magazine and state his beliefs. He shouldn’t have quoted scripture either unless he was […]

WHAT’S IN YOUR PULPIT?
