    The term “daughters of Sarah” excludes Muslims but not Christians.

    Another good RNR for Wed. as have they all been this week. What I like about your site including the RNR has been how the religion news therin has been presented with no bias just pure news. Would other’news’ organizations make such a commitment to just reporting the news not commenting on it as well. Thanks,,,now on to Thursday’s RNR.

    The new Pope is sodomite friendly. How wonderful. No wonder the Kenyan likes him.
