    Sorry. I didn't see anything of substance. You're response here has left me more confused what your point of discussion is about.

    Maybe there was something other than liberal disdain for Christians that was mentioned somewhere?

    No Charles, no Christian here worships Trump. Who should we have voted for - Hillary? Second, Trump did exactly what I voted for Him to do - 145 originalist judges on the lower federal courts and two on the Supreme court. The courts were my main concern.

    Actually, no one thinks Trump is being worshiped. You're confusing this with political tribalism, and it's occurring on both sides. However, though political debates have become heated, I don't recall any critics of Trump actually getting physically attacked in the streets like Trump supporters have. When that happens, then maybe a thread about it would be necessary.

    I can hardly listen to him make a speech. There is something about him that grates on my nerves -- even back in the days when he was making Pizza Hut commercials. Still, he's a lot more bearable than even one hideous Hillary cackle smiley shudder.gif.

    Don't confuse "Christians" with the "Christian right". You missed that point in the opening post and thus you fail to adress the actual point.

    Thanks. That made your point more confusing.

    Can you try again to express the issue you are raising?

    There is an aspect that could stand some clarification.
    By Christians, do you mean people who would accept the Apostle's Creed?
    or do you include the oxymoron of the atheist Christians?

    So basically this is just an attack thread to troll Christians then.

    That's the point right?

    Yes, really. Being alive in 1997, I specifically remember Clinton faithful saying they voted for a great president, not a saint. Republicans were outraged by the lack of outrage.
