    This would probably mean that the pledge of allegiance is off limits to Christians, then.

    This is the kind of response that I have in mind. I think the case for Omar being anti-Semitic isn't quite as strong as assumed, though there are other arguments used. I think the term anti-Semitic...

    JP Holding's short e-book on the Trinity explains it in a way that even I can understand. (Though the obvious question is that if his interpretation is correct, why did the early church fathers have...

    Okay, but Trump actually used the word "disloyalty", so trying to downplay that concept isn't relevant to the discussion of what he said.

    "Dual loyalty" in itself is not a bad thing because Christians all have loyalty to the kingdom of God among all else, right? I get that it's a bit trickier with the US and Israel because they're both...

    Dual loyalty - anti-semitic or not?

    Ilhan Omar was excoriated as anti-semitic for suggesting that Jews have a "dual loyalty" to Israel.

    How is that substantively any different from Trump's comment yesterday that "Any Jewish people...

    I agree. All the linked article does is demonstrate that the guest feels particularly strong about the issue. This seems to be a strange hill to die on.

    Of course, the US also has a strategically important air force base there. I'm not sure how that plays in to everything, if at all.

    I genuinely don't see what's flippant about rebuffing the offer. This is how the whole scenario looks to me:

    "I want to buy your car."
    "That's silly. It's not for sale."
    "Then I'm not going...

    This blog post sees no importance for the visit other than the purported purchase, but the US-Denmark relationship is important because the Arctic region has attained geopolitical importance over the...

    I'm just going to grant this point, because I don't see what the problem is. Yes, internal discussions of Christian theology are dependent on Christianity being true, and their verification may not...

    I don't do podcasts (impossible to focus on audio while watching young kids). I've read articles on his website but none of his books. I'm kind of taking my friend's word for it.

    There's a guy I work with who thinks the earth is flat because of the Bible verse about the pillars of the earth. Nice enough guy. He's just wrong on this one.

    This actually did have a concrete, if small, effect on the US's diplomatic standing. We need a president who does not troll, and I will be taking that into consideration next year.

    I don't know how appropriate or relevant asking for the job is nowadays when even part time jobs require 3 rounds of interviews and you have no idea going in just what stage you're at.
