Gays in the Priesthood

Posted By Brie Austin In Category: Opinion , Thoughts From News

I read the other day that the pope has decided that men with a tendency towards homosexuality will not be allowed to be admitted as priests.

Posted By Brie Austin In Category: Debate This , Opinion

To understand divorce and the Right Wing, you first have to understand that fear is what it is, but sometimes becomes what you make it.
