In the past few months, I have been approached not once, not twice, but three times by solicitors who want me to find Jesus through their website. I am deaf, and apparently one of my neighbors…Continue

"I agree with you about praying out loud in restaurants. Most religious people I know will do a quick little mumble under their breath when dining out, rather than a full-blown prayer extravaganza. I don't mind those."
