It’s a rainy day here in Macon, but it’s still a red, white, and blue day today.  Veterans Day.  A day to remember, honor, and thank those who have served in the different branches of our country’s military.  From the colonial minutemen with their muskets at Lexington and Concord to those in uniform today, so…

The Bible is clear, but the United States Congress doesn’t seem to understand.  Neither does the current administration in the White House.  God in His word defines marriage as the union of one biological man and one biological woman with the purpose of being together for life.  Period.  Yet, our federal government is now promoting…
