“It makes him happy….so u don’t have a say…or rather, ur opinion doesn’t matter.

“I personally know the man in question and I can attest that he’s a sound Christian with value for Godliness and modesty.
From what I saw, this was after the service had ended. He’s way better than the picture being painted by the poster.”
