    There seem to be a sizable contingent of "only Sanders Democrats", so fair is fair.

    I didn't think he had a serious chance of winning then, even before knowing what we know how about the deck being stacked.

    But I agree he was close enough that "fringe" wasn't an appropriate label...

    I agree with much of what's posted from Sparko's article but not entirely.

    Corporate responsibility for sin is a biblical theme; thus the passages where Israel as a whole is punished for idolatry...

    I don't understand your post. Democrats have been criticizing Bloomberg for it, and very loudly. That was the whole point of my post. Nobody has been really talking about Trump's role in it.

    The New Testament doesn't seem to take the tack that all sins are the same. In some cases, it's best to gently restore the person (Galatians 6:1). In the case of extreme, public sins,...

    I think there's a risk of conflating biblical notions of gender roles with what society holds for gender roles. Biblically, it's clear that the sexes are to be distinct and that you should not dress...

    I'll admit that I've never considered the latter point. I suppose one could draw an analogy with Paul commending the (Corinthians?) for giving to the Macedonians, which on face value would conflict...

    I'm not so sure your average American is willing to make that distinction, and there does seem to be an awful lot of convenient conflating of concepts. I saw a conservative the other day argue that...

    There's a reason why political cartoons have been such powerful propaganda tools throughout the last few decades of history, even though nobody takes their imagery literally. Nobody could get away...

    All you really need to know is that he's the former president of an organization that promotes traditional gender roles within Christianity, including but not limited to male-only clergy. This in...

    In other words, you have nothing better to offer than a tu quoque?

    This sort of pushback is reasonable. 401K plans that require several years of tenure to touch seem like a better way of rewarding employees.

    Calling something "communism" does not convince me to...
  13. Owen Strachan's controversial tweet - does it past biblical muster?

    He's getting a lot of pushback just because he's Owen Strachan, but I want to take an honest look at the tweet and not who posted it. I don't think Owen's a bad guy, and I don't freak out at the...

    I don't particularly have a problem with that. The notion of self enrichment at the expense of workers is a biblical theme and the idea of pushback at the small rate of 2% seems reasonable enough. (A...

    I'm far more concerned about what the public as a whole thinks than what a few Hollywood elites think. Isn't it a common conservative trope that what these elites think is completely disconnected...

    This has to be accurate. There's no way that Bloomberg's campaign will actually withstand scrutiny. He seems calculated to alienate nearly everybody in one way or another - anti-gun, pro-nanny state,...

    His name is mud in society at large. You seem to be making my point for me.
