    For all we know, it could be god, perhaps he got mad at how shit the US has become with hardly any people still being religious, so sent Trump as divine punishment:P


    Thanks for reminding me of this:

    "US evangelicals strongly support the president."

    That's weird, anyone have references to this, why do they like him? I know the Catholic Church doesn't agree with him.

    Thanks for the links. While I don't agree with their conclusion, I can at least see what kind of logic they're using.

    Let's see...
    1) someone who hates Jews and wants them dead or removed from the face of the earth is an antisemite. (I 100% agree)
    2) Israel is the promised land of the Jews. Therefore, someone who wants the country removed from the face of the earth is also an antisemite. (hmm...this assumption hinges on whether or not Israel is really promised to them. As a non-Jew, I just see the place as just a bunch of land that's very popular by both Jews and Muslims. Just...learn to live with each other, okay?).
    3) Anyone who criticizes Israel for...well...ANYTHING...is an antisemite. (somewhere between 2 and 3 is where things go off the rails. If you use the same word for person 1 and person 3, then you downright lack the perception skills to label anyone).

    It's only because conservatives seem to believe that Jesus was a Republican and that the Republican party is officially sanctioned by God. The liberals are all godless abortionists and satan worshippers of course, and they are indoctrinating our children in school (while at the same time pushing for their own form of indoctrination and theocracy instead) and turning the frogs gay. Of course, the Left isn't ideal either, what with the socialism and social justice and trying to mandate tolerance and friendliness. That's what pushed me to Libertarianism, and eventually to minarchism.

    I think I figured it out. God did it to test our faith. You know, like Job. 'Cause God is a dumbass asshole who makes bets with the devil over just how much of a burden humanity or a single human can take. If called out on it, he'll just lay out that it's his party and he'll cry if he wants to.

    Trump is also the worlds biggest troll. He trolls and the media feeds him more lol. He trolled hard core during the primaries. Trolled the shit out of Jeb Bush.

    Why do religions still have such a crucial role in this day and age?

    I seriously believe your blind hate in Trump gives you some sort of dyslexia because you misquote him or the people that work for him out of your blind rage.

    What? Read the OP, Huckabee-Sanders is the one that said god wanted Trump to become president, not Trump himself. It's definitely not a misquote, either, it's on video.

    Why not both?

    Because lowering or stopping needless harm and suffering is so bad.

    So, "Dog wanted Trump to be president"? I mean, Trump does bad mouth people "like a dog" all the time, so maybe it's Trump that's got the dyslexia and is trying to complement people?

    In all seriousness, I've never really understood a desire for anyone to claim oneself, one's country, or one's personal representative on Earth was "wanted" by God. Humans have a pretty terrible track record either at the personal level up to the level of power of whole countries at doing consistently positive things.

    If God actually "wanted" any person or entity on Earth to represent him in any fashion, either it's because God is an incompetent fuck-up or he believes we'll just graciously ignore all the incompetent fuck ups by said representation and merrily go along our way. I mean, seriously, this is why I get the whole Christian obsession with Jesus being God's son and a perfect being. The Old Testament Prophets were often rampant drunkards, among other things. The problem, of course, is then turning the problem that the Bible was written by men which inherently taints what's written.

    My point is, there's no way around the unreliable narrator problem. I mean, again, unless you think this is all part of God's plan, and, again, you believe God is a incompetent fuck-up. And of course, people with any sort of real decency would be absolutely appalled at listening to and following just about any businessman or politician for their absurdly horrific moral and ethical behavior let alone their efforts trying to associate themselves with God. I guess it's great for them that there so many people who are so quick to declare someone as "wanted" by God who are so indecent.

    Of course you used extremes and buzz words, but your post was basically saying that it is so bad that the left (or anyone) fighting against decriminalization and actually using our resources to benefit everyone.

    No, but Israel wanted Trump/any republican to be president, and Israel also wanted 9/11 to happen. Are they the children of God? No, but they are the children of Satan as a wise teacher once said 2000 years ago.
