If you didn’t think white boy summer was going to be lit, this story may change your mind.
Because we don’t have more important issues going on in the world like out of control inflation, a floundering economy, China rising, Joe Biden’s brain-melting, or a border crisis, Democrats have decided it’s time to go to war with the Catholic Church. Yes, 2021 just won’t stop.
