It looks like the despicable Trump Admniatration is following the practice of the EB by abusing scripture to break up families:

The PBCC delegate may, of course, see this as a business opportunity.

Re: Bloody Hypocrites

The EB comment about sex education demonstrates crass stupidity and smug ignorance of both the way things work and humanity itself.
