Perhaps there is a difference between praying for one's own enlightenment and praying that others will change to suit you and your desires/beliefs.

Pastor Dave's newest column is about bullying.

Is this video "bullying" or "enlightenment"?

I wonder if Hilary Clinton has seen the Jesus Camp video and if she also thinks it is "child abuse"?
