Let’s also remember that these practices were justified using the Christian Bible as a primary source of supporting the “morality” of these evil practices. Don’t tell me how superior your life is because your morality comes from the Bible. Justification for this evil also came from the same book.

Which Road Are You On? You Should Spend Some Time On “The Road to Edmond” Just finished watching “The Road to Edmond.” It’s been over a decade since I’ve watched something that centers on telling a “Christian” story.
