      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.

      Yeah, I know Trump has aligned himself with the prosperity gospel follks. I don't view that group as Christian as they promote a false message.
      Many of our politicians are Machiavellian in their practice. Reagan and Clinton stand out in my mind. So it's not surprising that Trump follows a similar track. If you haven't read "The Prince" it is worth the read. Machiavelli was an astute observer of human behavior.

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.

      When I voted my intention was to elect a President; it was not to choose a King or Queen.

      I imagine that you are surprised at what has happened then.
      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.
