      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Sorry, but you lost that one. The VIDEO is about Mussolini and Italy. The THREAD was quite obviously intended as another attack upon President Trump, using a false comparison between him and Il Duce.

      With respect MC, given your previous comments about Donald Trump, it's really hard to see this thread as anything other than a cheap dig at one slogan used by Donald Trump. Especially since by post 14 you were banging the drum about impeaching him again.

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Is it time to impeach Donald yet?

      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      Doesn't surprise me in the slightest, given how divisive politics is these days. Sometimes it seems we might as well move from the inauguration straight to the impeachment given at least 40% of the country is unhappy with whoever gets elected.

      The USA is certainly a country with a powerful military and a great amount of wealth.
