But you know how some people think of something too much and untimately end up in worry. No!

How long will our leaders continue to sanction this clearly immoral lifestyle? I am getting sick on this and I think our future generations would suffer a lot. I have been doing this for quite a while but I think it is time for me to garner some feedback on the issue. Well if you people in this forum have some social responsibilities please share your views.
