The word ‘authority’ isn’t really in my vocabulary.
I cannot understand how people who do not believe have structure in their lives.
There is something attractive to the thought of helping people who serve the same Lord as I do.
[Same-sex mariage] is the decay of family law.

Last week, a poll showed that the government get’s an average grade of 4.9 out of 10, which would be roughly equivalent to a cubic shitload of fail. Somehow, I’m not at all surprised.
