You know nothing about me or my faith or the training I have had. You malign me without knowing my heart. It is a very unChristian way to act. Guy, I will keep you in my prayers.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
Come on, Guy, you don't sound Christian when you throw names at me. You remind me of Gandhi's statement about Christianity. He said, "I like your Christ, but I don't like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." If you are trying to walk in His image, to be a better person, then you should quit demonizing other Christians with whom you disagree. We have a disagreement about how our Christian faith should be involved with politics and we can still respect one another as citizens and, incidentaily as Christians trying to do what is right. Please don't connect my name with Satan ever again.
You have NO IDEA about my relationship with Jesus and it really is none of your business. The Democratic Party does not pretend to represent religious views since we are open to all people. We recognize true freedom of religion, not just Christianity. The world is SO much more diverse than that and governments that are exclusive as fundamentalist and evangelical Christians want our government to be are what our founding fathers worked to get away from. The Catholic Church in Europe and the Church of England were (and to some extent still are) oppressive of human freedom.
There are some chilling parallels between Christian and Islamic fundamentalists. Both divide the world between believers and unbelievers, and by deciding for themselves who is saved and who is damned, they think that they can play God with our lives. Both have also declared war on the secular culture of liberal democracy, the most peaceful and prosperous means of social organization ever devised by humankind. They both reject the separation of church and state and would set up governments based on their own views of divine laws.
Good luck finding an "honest" conservative these days; one not taking NRA money (laundered money from Russian oligarchs) and not wanting to kill Social Security and Medicare, etc. Also, one not advocating tampering with the vote or allowing Russia to do so. Moscow Mitch refuses to allow the bill passed in the House to fight against Russia or any other power to mess with our elections.
The only crime here is the one Trump is trying to distract from. He was obviously obstructing justice by firing Comey in an attempt to take the heat off of his other (alleged) criminal activities. He bragged to the Russians he invited into the oval office that the pressure was off because he had fired Comey. Trump is the criminal in all interactions with law enforcement. Why else would he be constatnly putting down the FBI? He's a criminal.
You are right! If a liberal is a "gangster" of "fascist" then they are a PHONEY liberal. They should join the right wingers like in Charlottsville and fly the Nazi flag and chant against all Jews, blacks, Hispanics, etc. and drive their car over an ANTIFA counter-protester. There ya go, you gained another member. We sure don't want racists or Nazis in the Democratic Party.
FACT: Conservatives tend to be racists. Liberals tend to work against racism. Conservatives are the ones wearing the KKK white robes and flying the swastika flag and raising their arm in salute like Hitler's minions did. Liberals are the anti-fascists and anti-racists. Thus the name Antifa.
Maybe 10 years is severe, but the judge probably took into consideration the likelihood of a repeat offense and the contrition of the accused. In prison, he should be watched carefully to avoid him passing HIV on to another prisoner. It might be that HIV can be cured by the time he is released.
No, it was started by conservatives of the Dem. Party. That was when the Democratic Party was overwhelmingly strong in the south and against liberal ideas.
The parties switched their positions on racism in the 1960s after the assasination of President Kennedy when Johnson reversed his southern Democratic strategy and championed civil rights. From then on, the conservatives have moved over to the Repubican Party where it is safer to be a racist. The liberals from the GOP moved to the Democratic Party where they have worked against racism ever since.
The KKK has killed over 5000 Americans since 1865 (not declared a terrorist organization.
White Nationalists have killed over 300 Americans since 1995, also not declared a terrorist organization.
Antifa has killed ZERO Americans - Ever and this is what you want to call a terrorist organization????????
