Where Kurt is King

Filed by Bil Browning | May 17, 2008 | 9:30 AM | comments

This is why I stopped reading Veritas Rex - false advertising. The truth is never King; spin is King there. I'm very disappointed that Kurt would claim to follow God's footsteps while treading (most dangerously) on the path of the...Read More
