Thank you for Posting this Article, CHEE.
We, as US residents, are so blessed that we have the freedom to worship GOD without fear. There are those, as the Korean Christians, that brave the dangers of evil to represent the teachings of the Gospel. We must likewise stand strong here and not accept our freedom as a given as there are those of the Cult of Evil (islam is NOT a religion), liberals, et al, that wish to erase our Faith from the face of the earth. Stand Strong in Christ.
Amen and Amen, in His Holy Name.
I agree. The forced conversion of Steve Centanni should be a warning to all of us.
