I believe that our freedom is our most important asset, and is a gift from God. That freedom belongs to us even when it is not respected by the government. I believe that our individual lives belong to ourselves and ourselves only and are to be used to serve our own purposes and those of […]

Enabling Sexual Predators

From today’s Asbury Park Press:  Without training and teaching certification, his client (former St. Rose baseball coach Bartholomew McInerney) made misguided attempts to talk to the players and advise them that masturbation could be an alternative to other sexual activity, West Long Branch-based attorney Charles Uliano said.
