Replacing God ~ By Nancy Morgan

By Nancy Morgan Less than 3 months into the Obama administration, we are no longer a Christian nation. While speaking in Ankara, Turkey this week, President Obama made an astonishing proclamation.

They are now in charge. [Continue reading] digg story ~ Submitted by Landthatilove
