The Apologetics Lie my Daddy and Me Used to Tell

 A Facebook friend sent me a note and a link to one of my dad's old speeches he'd given in 1982 at Coral Gables Church. I spoke there too back in the bad old days of my far right activism. I re-watched the talk. Dad mentioned the projects we'd worked on together several times. It was good to hear his voice.
