In the world of #metoo, I #mayhave

In my childhood and youthful days, I know that I told racist and sexist jokes, used words and slurs about black and female classmates and strangers, judged people very harshly based entirely on their skin tone, gender, and faith.

Well Fu…..

The Death Of the Religious Right

I have been pondering the death of the “Religious Right” for a long time. I guffawed when many who formerly decried the Mormon church as a cult quickly changed their tune to support Mitt Romney.
