Farm Owners Losing Battle Against Lesbians Demanding to Be Married on Their Property
Why do liberals think it is ok for them to tell others what to do with their property?
Can you imagine the fit they would have if conservatives tried to make a speech at one of their award ceremonies? Check it out:
I guess we do see the fit they have if God is mentioned in school ever.
This certainly seem that this was a set up from the word go and that these liberals are just out to teach Christians a lesson.
