either between two men or two women is witnessed by four or more other men. That
shows you the difference in our culture. ... Like in Iran, two women having sex

old, toe-tapping senator from the great state of Idaho, Larry Craig ... has
changed his mind and is not going to resign. You know what it is? I don't think

I remained at that evangelical Christian university for three years, until the law school was sold to Liberty University, in Lynchburg, Va., another Christian college.
