Update on the nativity lawsuit in my hometown (and a big thank you for all you’ve done).

I want to thank all of you.  Due in large part to the attention being paid to the situation in Baxter County, AR (in which you can find my hometown of Mountain Home), various national media outlets are picking up the story.  All of them are saying pretty much the same thing: The issue is [Read More…]
