American Christians: "This is good, we voted for him because talks like us. This is what we want."
There is a difference. Kim is like finding a shit in the toilet bowl. Easy to see how it happened. Trump is like finding a turd on the dining table. Now we all have to question the entire situation; it is a real problem.
There are plenty of Christians that do not approve of Trump at all. However it's still sad a majority voted for him.
It's not that hard.
Kim, much like Mexico's president, speaks better English.
That's exactly the issue. My ultra-Christian coworker told me on Election Day, "Both candidates are bad, so I voted for the one that doesn't believe in murdering babies." Unbelievable.
Trump said he would use nukes if North Korea continued to "make threats".
Probably, single issue voters.
Rural evangelicals aren't Christian. They say they are, but they believe the exact opposite of everything Jesus taught. Their only real religion is Republican.
Hey now. Let's see what the turd does. We've never had a turd at the dining table sniff ugh. Let's give it a chance.
I wonder who won the Christian vote...
Edit: turns out Trump did.
Leviticus 19:33-34 “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.
Matthew 25:41-46 "Then he will say to those at his left hand, “You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.” Then they also will answer, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?” Then he will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.’"
Galatians 3:28 "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
John 4:7 "Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God."
Christianity and conservatism are incompatible.
Kim called Pissbaby "bereft of all reason". I don't even know if Pissbaby knows what bereft means.
North Korea makes threats. It's what they do. They routinely make some threat or another against their neighbors. China quietly pulls them aside behind closed doors and explains how stupid of an idea it would be. Everything goes back to normal. Rinse and repeat a few months later.
Once they cracked Nukes, they knew they could demand to be relevant. Once you're a nuclear power, certain things have weight and certain actions against you become much more dangerous. They issue the threat, look strong for their people at home, it's a nice little distraction for the loyal from living under an authoritarian manchild, but nothing comes of it.
Now the US has it's OWN authoritarian man-child, one who's ever action in his entire adult life has been motivated by an unorthodox combination of narcissism and crippling low self esteem, and he's decided that rather than ignore North Korea's threat, let the entire thing blow over like it has a thousand times, he has to prove he's a REAL MAN by shouting back.
It's two kids fighting on a playground, except they have access to Nukes, and every adult around them is desperately attempting to get them to stop shouting insults at one another before someone does something everyone will regret.
the only real difference is, although I hate trump.. his comments are if nk bombs a usa territory.. nk is all like, we r just gonna bomb, k?
If I thought half the country was into murdering babies, or anything that absurd, I couldn't help but question whether or not that was actually true.
I mean, it's pretty absurd, no?
Not according to another article on the front page, where major christian groups around the world, in south korea, and in the US came out to criticize his statements.
More like Haha libruls, now you have to smell the turd on the table. Not such a special snowflake.
Welcome to American Politics! Everything is extremely polarized on sensitive topics like this. One side believes there's a genocide of millions of babies happening every day, the other side believes women that get abortions are getting a simple medical procedure done. There's no gray areas for most people: it's black or it's white.
Me disliking the fact Trump is our President aside - I understand the appeal of trying to show a sense of force. However - there are much better ways to do that that don't involve making wild and reckless comments like your average banana republic dictator would make. I know about some very conservative people in the military who were completely on the Trump train but this is what broke the camels back for them. The threats do nothing but endanger the lives of both innocent civilians and the lives of our men and women serving.
But... That doesn't... Ok.
No.. usa's rethoric is always 'we have bombs, you cant have bombs.. if you dont stop we kill you'. fuck the US hard-on for war.
The thing is though... under democratic presidents the number of abortions actually go down due to increased funding for organizations that give support to people. So sensible Christians who don't want abortions should be voting for democrats. I'm not even Christian but I think abortions are a sad thing, so I would vote democrat on this issue if I lived in the US.
He does, and he loves berefts, his wife has the biggest berefts anyone's ever seen, absolutely beautiful
Or maybe it's because two fat neck beards in power are having a digital slap fight over the internet and not realizing that they are dragging the world into a massive war nobody wants.
Not that I expect you to be reasonable here since half your post consisted of childish jabs at those that disagree with you, but:
If two men are about to fight and one has a club and the other a sword, it seems the one with the sword is better armed than the other and will likely win. That doesn't mean, though, that he won't sustain heavy and possibly grievous damage in the process.
The US would beat North Korea in all-out war, yes. That doesn't mean that the US won't lose thousands or tens of thousands of lives in the process. If NK manages a nuclear strike, we're talking millions of lives.
Basically, who cares who's strongest. Thousands to millions stand to die and that is unacceptable.
Leviticus 19:33-34 “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall tell him to pull himself up by his bootstraps. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as a leech among you that asks for handouts, and you shall drug test him before he is allowed to receive the absolute minimum amount of assistance, for you were tax-payers in the land of Egypt, therefore you should have complete control over other peoples' lives as you hide behind my name: I am the Lord your God."
Christian In Name Only.
Global Christians and American evangelicals share absolutely nothing in common. Modern American "Christianity" with its teachings of "God blesses the virtuous with wealth, humanity has no influence on the planet, human rights are evil because they enable laziness" is the most utterly un-Christlike thing imaginable.
Here we go. Conservative Christians say the liberal Christians aren't real Christians. Liberal Christians say conservative christians aren't real Christians. I just say they're all nuts.
Can confirm: my 80 year old Catholic great aunt who is otherwise a very sweet lady voted for Trump purely on the issue of abortion.
Ahh yes, the old "Take a shit on the dinner table and don't acknowledge it whenever people bring up the smell" approach to politics.
My elderly parents did the same. Now they don't want to talk about politics, though to be fair, most people don't, it's so polarized.
You're clearly an idiot, but you're not wrong about this. NK is no threat to us. They are, however, a threat to SK, Japan and anyone else on the other side of the Pacific in targeting range.
I suspect you're not very concerned about innocent Asians so I'll put it out there that tens of thousands of American soldiers and civilians live in those countries as well.
Is the reason they are making these threats though not because of all of the sanctions? (I'm not saying their threats are justified, just pointing out they didn't just come out of the blue)
This is why America has been the bully for many years now. Biggest stick does not equal being right - only winning the fights.
