From Darkness to Divahood | Robin of Berkeley

Robin of Berkeley is my favorite (former liberal and now conservative) warrior, honest and exposing Truth…even as she seeks to deepen her understanding of her new Christian faith in God.

God bless you Robin.  You are a gift.

Dear Mr. Lakely,  I believe Joy Behar is an extreme example, just another “hood ornament” for strident liberalism/feminism.
