Afraid to Disagree?

Many people think I am nice. You know, because I am Christian, they feel I ought to be nice, friendly and agreeable. And the fact that I am charitable and compassionate magnifies the perception that I am naive, easy and a push over. Resisting other people’s urge to […]

I am Pro-Life, but… (Part Two)
