About David Davies, Editor-in-Chief

David Davies is the Editor-in-Chief of Media Rostra. He is also a lawyer and a licensed minister, so he is basically distrusted by everyone on some level.

Same Sex Marriage Battle Lines Brightly Drawn

Unfortunately, it seems that the battle lines on the same-sex marriage are going to be even more brightly drawn between democrats and republicans now that Romney reinforced his opposition to same-sex marriage on the same day that Obama publicly endorsed it for the first time as President.  The issue will serve as some sort of […]
