Justice Thomas objects to Supreme Court’s signal on gay marriage. Judicial defiance in Alabama: Same-sex marriages begin, but most counties refuse.

WEB Notes: There is no doubt in my mind the events of our world are picking up pace rapidly. This topic is huge in my opinion. Our country was once the beacon of freedom and together we stood with God. Now those days are a distant memory and 2 Peter 2:6 sticks out to me here.

On an individual level you keep on serving our Father and take note of what is transpiring in the world.
