    I congratulate Glenn for being a great American and speaking up for what is right. Shame on CNN for not making this a front page story! Instead of being so liberal CNN needs to be in touch with the American majority, and be a leader in encouraging American return tothe Godly heritage that made us a great nation – which we are about to lose, unless we make an about face and turn back to God.
