Because man is fallen, the curse of free will is that bad men eventually get into power. Because God is merciful, the blessing of mortality is that they don’t last forever.

Celebrate with this classic Remy parody song:
Viva Cuba. Viva la libertad.

The African-American woman who leads a state chapter of the ACLU has resigned, citing her own daughters’ “frightened” reaction to biological males using the women’s restroom.
So a white supremacist or “white nationalist” (wants a constitutional amendment making America white-only, banning all people except “non-Hispanic whites of the European race, in whom there is no ascertainable trace of Negro blood”) briefly became an official delegate of the Trump campaign.
If racism is going to start becoming more popular or mainstream now, I gotta get this off my chest:
