Jul 10, 2015 by

by John Horvat II, TFP: he Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex “marriage” took place with predictable media fanfare.

Jul 10, 2015 by

From MassResistance: It’s not completely over yet. But a group of treacherous and cowardly Republican politicians are standing in the way. A new fight is on, and everyone’s help is needed.
