Do you care enough to love where others will not?

How do we compensate for the irresponsible? The law says let them have their way to avoid public inconvenience. The saints have a different way.

House Urges Ninth Circuit to Rehear Sex Survey Case -- 11/16/2005

CNS News reported (6:47 P.M.) that the Congress just weighed in on the Fields vs. Palmdale case. See House Urges Ninth Circuit to Rehear Sex Survey Case -- 11/16/2005.
