Senators, singers, and everyday saints gathered at the capitol building in Columbia, SC, last Saturday for one purpose: to declare their support for traditional, biblical marriage at the We Stand With God Pro-Family rally.

Sounds like we should feel secure in using our private cell phones, doesn’t it?
If only it were that simple.
