What our leader Susan Smith had to say:
"This post is an effort at damage control by Murphy’s campaign. They think they can divert attention away from his Syrian refugee vote by attacking Grayson. It’s sad that Murphy doesn’t ever have anything positive to say about himself."#47cowards

Idlewild Baptist Church a decidedly conservative church in Lutz has monthly events where Hillsborough County teachers hang out. They get free t-shirts and coffee.
Please note: Idlewild leaders have spoken out against gay marriage. Prominent members have included Bill Bunkley, a conservative radio personality, and Randy Armstrong, who led a constitutional initiative against tax-funded abortions. Republican presidential hopefuls stump at Idlewild during campaign season.

District leaders point out that Idlewild can help them meet children's sometimes pressing needs — needs that, in Smith's view, should be fully funded by the state. Instead, Smith said, "we have to beg billionaires for money and we haveto beg churches for money."
