Andrew Interviews Tony Jones

Here’s an interview with the man, the myth, the legend … Tony Jones.

Part 2: Lesson Learned from Andrew

2009 Gay Pride Parade Video 9 of 11

In this video I get yelled at and told I’m going to hell. The protestors thought I was gay. When I told them I wasn’t gay and went to a conservative seminary, I was still told I’m going to hell. One thing to notice about half way through the video, the guy with the megaphone [Read More...]
