I know I am a crusader, a flag waver, a voice crying in the wilderness, but we've got to do something about the swelling tide of pornography, the assault on traditional marriage, and the killing of babies; and if we don't stop trying to redefine what "truth" is we are going to have to face God's certain judgment.
