Allegation Credible

Friday, February 1st, 2019

I lost a friend today. Not to death, but to a credible allegation. As his friend, I hold out hope it remains an allegation. Allegation means there is no proof. As a Catholic, I know the “credible” part requires the Church to take preventive action. “Credible” means that it is possible to be true. I’ve […]

Oklahoma Conservatives Kill Jobs and the Middle Class

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016
