Floyd(Washington, D.C.) — Violence is exploding in our cities, schools and churches. Racism is tearing us apart. The Supreme Court is poised to rule against Biblical marriage. Americans have murdered 57 million children through abortions and there is no end and sight. Marriages and families are imploding all around us. Poverty is growing. Drug and alcohol use is epidemic. And that’s just here at home. Abroad, Iran is closing in on The Bomb. ISIS is exploding across the Middle East. The Kremlin is growing more aggressive.
