Everytime someone make a comment like this we just keep holding ourselfs back especially, when we still have knowledgable knuckle heads in the church who are suppose to know better making comments like this. How does a person like this get into a position of learning and trust for so many people and then show his true colors? It just goes to show you, old tricks are hard to break for some people and for those who actually believe this stuff. Don't we have enough dirty laundry to air to the world and still have to put up with this garbage? Are we really that proud of people? It makes me wonder and is very scary.....!
