Can the world get any crazier?

One of our country’s basic tenets is freedom of religion — a freedom that if we are not careful, we could lose.

We have a faith that teaches love and forgiveness and if someone does not believe as we do, that’s their choice. We might tell them what we believe but the choices are theirs.
