Freedom to Exercise Religion

Free Exercise of Religion
The response to the recent decision in the U.S. Supreme Court regarding Hobby Lobby has been…sad. The most popular argument is “They can believe whatever they want, as long as it doesn’t affect anyone else.” Talk about ignorance.

Birdies in a Bath
Ouch… Well, my birds are super intelligent… most of the time. I’m trying to train them to take a wooden bead and drop it in a little wooden pot (cup).
