**I’m not trying to offend anyone with the use of some choice words in the video above. There are some things we have to take with a grain of salt as we parse, critique and engage culture. Hopefully we can do this wisely and in community.**


  1. Ok, much of what was said was right on, correct, to the point. Other statements a bit course, but you can see through them.

    Some things said are laughable – some things cude.

    All of it causes one to “think a bit” about the seriousness of marriaage.

    I’m in for life!
