It is obvious that their message is not to defend “traditional marriage” -- as in Christian marriage -- but rather to hurt those who love those who are of the same sex as they are.

This is absolutely clear in their latest malicious sneer at LGBT adoption rights -- specifically in Virginia.

Transformations: A review of "Our America with Lisa Ling - Transgender Lives"

Unlike many people, I don’t watch Oprah Winfrey very much, unless I happen to be channel-surfing late at night and notice a blurb about an upcoming episode that I feel would enrich my life somehow.
