Social Justice is what was preached by President Obama’s pastor, Rev. … Continue reading The Red-Green Alliance: Muslims and Marxists Unite!
“Before the Lord; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.”Psalms 98:9 This verse jumped out at me today because of the current political climate (of course, right?), but bear with me.
