I couldn’t hear what the were saying to each other in hushed whispers, but from the looks I was getting, you’d think I was a bug-eyed Martian who just stepped out of a UFO, only to randomly wander into the High School cafeteria.

As a practicing Christian, I do hold to some of the fundamental beliefs that separate the conservative and the liberal. But, do not attempt to put me into a box and to consider me close minded.
