      Very sad . No one choses to live a life like this . Hes made alot of bad choices but dont condemn unless u know or have walked in there shoes. And addiction is a disease. In Jesus words let the man with no sin cast the first stone. Judge lest you be judged

    That’s a good point men fail believing in all religions, and you sir have failed in judging them. When you die and Satan is standing as your king please ask if he needs a cool drink of water, seems it would be the Christian thing to do. Go a head and get yourself one while your at it. It s on me. Have a good eternal burn.

    What about the St George good ole boys who seem to conspire their government way for their own personal gains? Who was that city council guy who got a chunk of city property for nothing? Yes, city property, meaning property that belongs to everyone. Just as this guy pens a note asking for money, your government people write lengthy documents that reward people money.
