A Good Baptist Message for July 4th

Holly Hollman grew up in Jackson Mississippi best I understand. I Met her Mom couple years ago at the Baptist Covenant meeting in Atlanta after a workshop with the former Atty General of New Jersey and a an ethicist from Austin, Texas where George W. Bush used to be the Governor.

Up the road Ft. Payne is the home of Cherilyn Crowe, who now works with Holly in DC at the

And a few years ago just a few miles south in Gadsden, Judge Roy Moore made a big splash.
But here is what Holly has to say for the Fourth. It would be good if Donnie and Jackie Myers and my Republican friend Thomas Barksdale next time they say Mattox were to say: Casey, we're proud of you, but I think Holly and Cherilyn and right.
