What’s a heretic?
Somebody who doesn’t believe the ‘right’ things?
Somebody who’s not blindly obedient to authority?
That’s us, too!
We called a minister whose website is www.hereticslikeus.com
We welcome other ‘heretics like us’
Even if unorthodox people don’t join us - those heretics do like us too!
