What’s Happening to Chip & Joanna Gaines Affects All of Us

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

I thought it was a joke at first. Wait, is someone really upset that a Christian couple who attends a Christian church has a pastor that preaches a widely accepted message found in the Christian Bible? What’s the story here?
