Just My Thoughts

What do I say to speak into the most divisive issue of our age? 

When I was younger, it was abortion.   Today, it is gay rights. And I have gay children that I love with all my heart. But that does not change the truth. And the truth, to me boils down to this:

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Just because you can refute scripture, and justify the issue, doesn't make it the best thing. Maybe it makes it ok, but it doesn't make it the best choice.

What's My Line?

There was a TV show when I was a kid called, "What's My Line".

On it, the contestant tried to stump the panel of celebrities as they asked him or her about their line of work.
