Two States, One Goal: Freedom

LGBT activists have been fond of saying that same-sex marriage would never affect you. Well, now, it’s not only affecting you — it’s affecting needy kids. Across the country, Christian charities and adoption services have been bracing themselves against wave after wave of attack from liberals, desperate to kick them out of the child welfare industry.

According to the latest National Assessments, a whopping 65 percent of eighth graders weren’t proficient in reading in 2017, and another 67 percent weren’t competent in math.
