Happy 4th of July, my little gingersnaps! Don’t blow yourselves up!! And those of you naughty people setting off fireworks in places where it’s illegal (like California)… don’t do it.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard about the landmark ruling in favor of same-sex marriage made by the Supreme Court of the United States this past Friday. It’s also Pride Week. As you can imagine, celebrations ensued which made us think that maybe gay agenda really does exist…and it’s about a utopic existence for all of humanity.
