    Another likely indicator is disproportionate focus on Tulsi Gabbard. (This focus has been used against her by other Democrats, but it's hardly to her detriment that another country happens to like...
  2. Why should the welcomeness of one's perspective...

    Why should the welcomeness of one's perspective be dependent on who they're voting for? That seems like the opposite of what you're looking for here.
  3. Given that the US broadcasts Voice of America,...

    Given that the US broadcasts Voice of America, which is by definition propaganda, it seems hypocritical to then say that other perspectives couldn't be allowed. I generally think there should be much...

    That post seems really dismissive of older people. Why would they be less important?

    I think it's somewhat unfair to hold an entire party accountable for what one local leader shows, but at the same time I have little sympathy for anybody who takes umbrage given how extensively both...

    As for the actual OP, my work is maybe 80-85% black and I definitely haven't seen it as of yet, but I tend to keep to myself anyway...

    In addition to the African contingent, the UMC still has quite a few conservative congregations in the South (Wesley was, after all, a country preacher), which are functionally fairly independent but...

    I've seen that allegation a number of times. It's just dumb. Apparently Obama knew he would become president 20 years ago so he set up a cover story to explain where his kids came from.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some of the progressive mainline denominations end up consolidating at some point; they almost seem redundant, and they're generally hemorrhaging members. How many of the...

    The old tweets mentioned earlier in the thread where Trump implied Obama would spark war with Iran to win re-election have been reposted all over the web but I don't see this situation as analogous....

    Alice Cooper is actually quite a thoughtful guy, and a Christian now to boot.

    Mark 1:41 is part of the other 0.5%.

    You still don't understand why this isn't that important and that Christianity does not view Scripture the same way Islam does.

    I don't get why the inevitable was delayed for so long.

    On a more general level, I think it's fair to expect that elected presidents may end up adopting different postures than they campaign on based on the realities of the job. Dick Cheney famously...

    One issue is that as a candidate, he criticized Obama for excessive golfing and implied he would stay away from the course himself.

    Just to be clear, that's not what I mean by negative gun culture. I'm thinking more of street gangs or people who think the idea of killing people is funny. I think shooting competitions are cool...

    Either it's okay to try to diagnose Biden and Trump, or it's okay to try to diagnose neither long distance. It is not suddenly ethical to diagnose one but wrong to speculate about the other.

    SBCs freaking out about Russell Moore being too liberal (he's not remotely close to liberal by any definition of the term) remind me of the old line about rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. Have...

    I think that's fair. Most people do recognize that since there's so much manger imagery in even secular portrayals of Christmas.
