All you ever read about our government doing these days is supporting regimes which persecute Christians and Christianity, and then you ask whose side you think God might be on? You think God could ever be on the side of George Soros, Monsanto, and the Obunga state department??
Don’t the Russians need to produce enough offspring to colonize Russia first.
Isn’t that what I said? Choom gang... flying high? Commander in Cheetohs?
