Not to throw a wrench in the works by actually getting back to the topic but this is one of those catch 22 scenarios. Trump doesn't do this he's a heartless bastard. He does and he's grandstanding.


Actually, he's doing what he feels is best. All of us should be able to look in the mirror and feel good about our decisions. Including the President.

Thankfully, people who rise to the level of U.S. President don't have "snowflake" personalities. You wouldn't want someone in that office who makes decisions contrary to their own values, just because certain people would berate you.

They might make decisions contrary to their own values because certain people will applaud them.

Is that better or worse?

I didn't. I also didn't miss the part where you state your belief with "certain knowledge" so by your own statement, you prove your opinion is "nothing short of ignorant AND arrogant."

You're speaking in absolutes about people speaking in absolutes.

Its a tautological failure.

I don't comprehend the point you're trying to make. Seems faulty, but I would love for you to elaborate it for me.

I do believe we were talking about "people who rise to the level of U.S. President", not me.

Ego based?

Your answer as to why god gives babies bone cancer suggests god has an ego and holds grudges.

Pretty scary stuff if that's what you believe.



Since humans were created in God's "image", it's likely that we have a lot in common!

IMO, the current President doesn't make decisions based on what anyone will think of him...good or bad. I'm exactly like that in all that I do. So it's easy to spot that trait in another person.

I didn't ask about the current president or you. I asked if someone did so, would it be better or worse.

Does this include the Muslim prayers? Maybe Allah will be willing to help?

Allah is merely the Arabic word for "God" ... I'm sure they'll be glad to know He's on the job.

This has been an interesting thread and very revealing about many members.

As a man of faith and a Texan; I don't want or need your disingenuous politically inspired prayers.

Especially from the holier than thou Christians and hypocrites. Your transparent hatred of intellectual freedom exemplifies America perfectly in this climate of ugly, toxic, domestic affairs.

Well, it's the same deity:


Allah (/ˈælə, ˈɑːlə, əlˈlɑː/;[1][2] Arabic: الله‎, translit. Allāh‎, pronounced [ɑɫ'ɫɑːh] (About this sound listen)) is the Arabic word for God in Abrahamic religions.


en.wikipedia.org...

....so, yes.
