    • NO WORRIES THE KID IS NOT TYLER’S IT IS RONNIE MADRA’S BABY. YOU WILL NOT SEE PICS OF THIS CHILD BECAUSE HE LOOKS NOTHING LIKE TYLER BUT HIS FATHER RONNIE.

  1. They are to darn old to be God Parents! Not a good decision to make for the well being of the child. I thought the meaning of God parents, was to take responsibility for the child if something were to happen to the parents? Look like their son will have two sets of God Parents. Cause those old hags will be deep below dirt surface soon! Lol

    • While I agree that this article shouldn’t be under Gospel, I disagree with your comment. Get off your high horse. You’ve probably done numerous things out of wedlock and some of them were probably straight up nasty.

  2. Al, why am I on a high horse because I questioned the appropriateness of this story under gospel? I most certainly have sinned and fallen short but I certainly wouldn’t celebrate them under a gospel title. That’s the point! No need to attack or characterize me as “nasty”.
