Liberty Counsel: DOMA Repeal Will Lead to Christian Revolution

There’s a revolution coming — led by Christian Americans who are furious that the Supreme Court has redefined their marriages.

Now that the Supreme Court has all but abolished both anti-gay laws, Staver won’t keep quiet.

Dear Richard,

My name is Kaitlyn. I’m 15 years old and have been an atheist since I was 10. I’m fortunate enough to have parents that are very open minded and irreligious.
