June 22, 2015"If you happen to be a young kid in junior high or high school, and you're being force-fed evolution, and part of evolution is teaching that the transition from dark skin to light skin equals more evolved, what are you gonna think of dark-skin people?...I'm hearing from people that this is part of the curriculum.

June 11, 2015"There's nothing in the Bible that talks about retirement. And yet it's been an accepted concept in our culture today. Nowhere does it say, 'Well, he was a good and faithful servant, so he went to the beach.' It doesn't say that anywhere. The example I think of is Noah. How old was Noah when he built the ark? 600.
