Quotes About A Caring Father

"Theres an old Jewish story that says in the beginning God was everywhere and everything, a totality.

Quotes About Same Gender Love

"In 2004 our forty-second president, George W. Bush, the leader of the free world, proposed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to forever ban gay marriage--which was already illegal. In opinion polls, about 50 percent of this country said they thought Bush had the right idea.
