It is now the “gotcha” question being asked to every Republican presidential candidate: “Would you attend a same-sex ‘wedding’ ceremony?” Rick Santorum said no, since it would be a violation of his faith.

Brother “Sadavir” regularly shared his faith among members of India’s Koya tribe in the thick forest of the Dantewada district. It eventually cost him his life.

How do we maintain an attitude of faith and victory in a messed-up, crazy world? How do we walk in confidence and holy optimism when things are collapsing around us?
