Court backs right to express Christian views at work
Discrimination against Christian ideas has been handed a big reprimand by the Washington state Supreme Court.

Let us no grow weary in standing for righteousness and proclaiming the truth of the Word of God to a lost, dying, and increasingly darkened world.
