Thank you for your insights and perspective. We do live in a new day and day in which we must stand strong and firm for the values of the faith. I totally agree it is sad we must celebrate something we took as secure just a few years ago. However, on the other hand this is a day when the light will shine brighter in contrast to the darkness and fog all around us. Keep up the good work.

Thanks Dr. Moore for your response & godly leadership of our Convention! We definitely & desperately need more leaders today who are appalled by the hijacking of our Christian freedoms and who aren’t afraid to take a stand in speaking out in defense of them! You are appreciated & respected in these efforts!
