Interesting that the only post is a negative one against the President. It was not his fault that he came to power when the world was in a huge recession.I find your site distasteful, I am a Christian and interested in Tudor history but to attack the president under the banner of Heresies is very inappropriate and very un Christian. The martyrs would be ashamed of you for taking there deaths in vain.You would be best suited plotting in Henry's court yourselves.

Obama is drenched with the blood of children murdered in utero.

Obama has turned into a real "Obummer" for his supporters. Needless to say, I did NOT vote for him.
