When SOGIE Equality Bill Finds an Ally in a Catholic Activist Nun

By Alvin John Ballares / September 12, 2019 / 0 Comments

You’re not mistaken; this post is by me, among all people, a secular Humanist. In case you missed it, I don’t believe in any god, not anymore. I believe in humans and their instinct to do what is good and right based on lessons passed on by our ancestors from 6 million years ago. But […]
