    One doesnt need to be a christian to tell lies about others and hurl insults at them. Even the unbelievers do that
    My 'faith' designation is 'Christian'. But I do not want the label "Christian" leading to mockery of faith in Christ. Consequently, I apologize if words of mine written in this post or others reflect poorly on the what Faith in Christ means, or what Faith in Christ can in fact do in terms of bringing Grace, Mercy, and Love into the world.

        Again I note. My comments are against donald trumps behavior. Behavior that objectively and clearly violates christs teachings about life and love for our neighbor. I also point out it is inconsistent for a christian to support such behaviour.

        You, Mm, Ronson, seanD focus your posts on deriding and demeaning who I am, on libeling my character and my beliefs.

        the difference could not be clearer. I wonder if you understand what it is you are doing?
        To pity your view is not despising your view, let alone despising you. Why would I do that?

        I've not said anything about you personally.

        What I am doing is pointing out that Biden is no better than Trump when it comes to being a sinner.

        Am I to conclude one sinner better than another?

        No, I will not do that.

        Joe Biden is objectively and clearly violating Christ's teachings. So much so many on the catholic church thinks he is not a catholic in good standing.

        It is inconsistent for you to support Biden, and then turn and judge Trump.

        Not just inconsistent, it is idiotic.

        My suggestion for you is to drop invoking Christ in your politics. It makes you look blind in your judgements.

        I judge neither Trump nor Biden in the Lord. And you only judge one.

        • On a related topic, the vice presidential debate took place last night. By all accounts, Mike Pence utterly demolished Kamala Harris. So what do liberals do? They accuse him of "mansplaining" and make a big deal about a fly that happened to land on Mike Pence's head at one point.

            It apparently has become the meme war on social media between memes from the left (the fly on Pence) and counter memes from the right (the fly on Obama).

                That's amusing. I seem to recall you coming out of the blue and called me "despicable" for simply noting that Howard University is primarily a black college. No, you've attacked my character. I've never attacked yours.

                the difference could not be clearer. I wonder if you understand what it is you are doing?
                I am not aware of any Christians "supporting" Trump's behavior. Most complain his ego and juvenile behavior is a problem. But more important is what he gets done. Leftists are far more concerned with window dressing; with words instead of action, image over substance (like Guicci empty-suit Obama).

                  Trump's supporter fail to take Trump to task concerning his habitual lying.

                  I believe there is wide spread Republican support for Trump's irresponsible 'belief' that “Only 6% of the people actually died from COVID.” The others “died from other reasons.” This is horrendously disrespectable, of al those that perished and their relatives including thousand of medical workers.

                    Take him to task? You mean telephone him and tell him off about it? Besides we already have plenty of that from Leftist White House reporters. Like below (note smirking Leftist Kristen Welker, scheduled to be moderator of the final debate).
