johnny and taylor

Look, I know Taylor Marshall is a good guy.  He is a courageous and clear spoken advocate for the faith (a little bit of "NFP is for when you're schizophrenic or in a concentration camp" kookiness notwithstanding); and he has that wonderful, alt-universe-Johnny-Cash face:But this aggression will not stand, man:  Marshall asks,  Did the Beatles Promote Abortion?Marshall zeroes in the covers for the albums Sgt.
