Thank You, BarackObama.com

Although I am voting for Mitt Romney, I want to thank the people at BarackObama.com (the website) for helping me to resolve an issue dealing with someone misusing my identity.

From The New Civil Rights Movement, a “gay rights” blog, in response to Sally Quinn’s column opining that Romney “captured the God vote” at the debate: Sally Quinn has in one fell swoop explained why sane people the world over hate — and I do mean hate — what the radical religious […]
