Superior Court Judge Craig Veals said, “You yawned rather audibly there. As a matter of fact, it was to the point that it was contemptuous.”

“I’m sorry, but I’m really bored,” the juror replied.

“I’m sorry?” the judge responded, and the juror repeated his statement. Read More»

Justin Kollmeyer's picture

If you’ve read any of my articles here in the Citizen or if you know me and my ministry at all, you know that I strongly believe marriage is “God’s idea” and that His sole intention, specifically declared in Scripture, is for marriage to be the life-long union of one man and one woman. And I believe that marriage and family are still the backbone of our country and our society.
