      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.

      Are we here going to return to the real world soon? The president is not going to pardon himself. No one even advocated for him to do it. Yet we are in the midst of unhinged ravings about something that not only will not happen, but would make no sense, and which the president has already publicly disavowed.

      That's right. It is called Christianity.

      That is what most of the people you emulate hold against him more than anything else.

      USA republicans are tories.
      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.

      You have to love the checks and balances the founding fathers put into the US Constitution.
      Agreed

      He is a Machiavellian. Remember...Machiavelli, the Roman Catholic who advised the Prince on how to deceive his people and thus win their support? Perhaps Trump is a closet Roman Catholic...

      that's pretty far back in the closet if he is one. Have you seen the list of his spiritual advisors? Here is a list I found from 2017. Maybe they have already all been fired secretly replaced by Catholics. Who knows

      The title I prefer for him is usurper and arch-criminal.
