Quotes

...Cooke conjures up a link so flimsy it would have been laughed out of court at the Scopes Monkey Trial. Tyson, he states, can be "pointed to as the sort of person who wouldn't vote for Ted Cruz."
..."If these man-made actions conflict with God's moral law," Delimater plagiarized, "then they are not law at all.... When our local officials, including county councilmen and sheriff's [sic] confront such 'pretended legislation,' it is their duty to resist its implementation."
"I've owned other cars in the past, but I have sold them" he said
...For thus it is written in the Book of Psalms by David king of Israel, "The precepts of the Lord are upright, making happy the heart. The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes" (Ps. 19:9)
