“LGTBQ” – I can’t for the life of me memorize those initials.  It’s easier for me to remember the Biblical word: sodomites.  (Do note that they refuse to include S in their chosen initials.)  What they ARE is irrelevant, of little to no interest to this Tennessean.  It’s what they DO that is patently unspeakabe, vulgar, obscene, unnatural, rebellious against […]
