That's good advice.

I say that because you have a stated penchant for wanting to strap on a suicide vest and murder people who dare differ with you about your vision of rights.


No, I specifically said I wanted to kill a malicious and maniacal king, a tyrant that's destroying a democracy.


Oh, well that makes it better.

Indeed. A liberal Supreme Court might have reversed the rulings on campaign financing which eliminated all limits. That would have curtailed the power of the wealthy to buy politicians. It also might have done something about the absurd gerrymandering taking place in congressional seats.


Campaign financing and gerrymandering...those are big issues for evangelicals, are they?

Could've fooled me. I don't know a lot of evangelicals, myself. I'll take your word for it, I guess. Seems unlikely though. I would expect them to be more worried about issues like religious freedom.


The only thing they seem to care about is abortion. They voted Trump so he would ban abortion and homos, or at least, appoint the kind of judges who would do so. They don't read the bible or care about the bible. They certainly ignore the ten commandments and phrases like "it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven", and "thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife". No, their whole bible consists of "Thou shalt not have abortion' and 'thou shalt not be a faggot'.

Oh I see...so you mean they weren't actually that concerned about campaign financing or gerrymandering, as you suggested earlier?

So you mean the below was actually - in their minds at least - correct then. Thanks for clearing that up.

Luckily for them [more accurately, as far as they were concerned] Trump saved them from that.


For example if they ran a business, like say Hobby Lobby, under Trump and his new supreme court justice, they might not have to supply the morning after abortion drug on the grounds it would be against what they saw as their religious principles.

Very well...got it.

As I recall this began with your confusion as to why Evangelicals might support Trump. I suggested a possibility. Martin suggested another - that they didn't like the alternative.

Just making the point that we didn't vote for him only over abortion. He's not reliable on that topic...either way.

What we did was we voted against Hillary and business as usual.

Keep in mind I've long said that I would've voted for Bernie had the race been Bernie vs. any of the fourteen Republican toadies who ran in 2016.

You didn't vote for him. You don't speak for all the people who voted for him. He made it very clear his thoughts on Abortion during the campaign. No doubt the moronic religious right clung to it and voted for him because of it.

I can't find common ground with groups of people who think it's okay to deny people rights based on how they are born. Who tell people that because they wish to have relations with people of the same sex they will burn for eternity in hell and suffer endless torture. That cover up pedophilia.

If you want to find common ground with those people, you'll fit right in with ISIS. :idea:

You said they were worried about a 'progressive' court. I replied with what I thought was the most likely thing that would happen if there were five liberals on the bench.

But it's true evengelicals didn't give a damn about the court okaying wide open spending sprees by wealthy interests wanting to buy politicians. Nor do you, clearly. All they cared about was abortion and faggots. Too bad they weren't real Christians.

People would have quite a bit less issue with evangelicals if they followed matthew 7.

You fixed nothing.

Take your own advice. Be honest with yourself and us.
