Ole Bart is one of those C-Street Christian members of  The Family. Well, s-u-r-p-r-i-s-e !

RE the photo – I am assigning guilt by association. Anyone living at C-Street isn’t big on the Bill of Rights, so they deserve to be publicly charged with . . . well, whatever I feel like charging them with.
