 Not that many people act like Jesus.It would be nice if more did. I am curious as to why the Glass family decided to make these somewhat strange comments concerning abortion and Jesus? All comments are welcome here,but perhaps you might want to clarify the purpose of your writings. Jesus has nothing to do with abortion.Abortion is not really very good,,,,,but I love Jesus....dddd
