      McCain A true American Hero and Patriot

      I was saddened to learn of John McCains passing. This man was a true class act, a hero, a patriot, a man who dedicated himself to service to this country and the people in it. He will be sorely missed, a true gentleman.
      Isaiah 40:31

      Yes, he did seem to be an excellent politician with considerable personal integrity. He will be missed in the Senate and in the nation.


      It is sad that the draft dodging man in the oval office today besmirched his reputation. It reflects poorly on the Mr Trump but he is already so tarnished by his own actions that this shameful act is just one more grain of sand in the vast dune of faults he has built.

      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.

      This is a serious question, simply because I'm not familiar with the man other than knowing he stood for President in 2008. Can someone give details as to why they liked him? Needless to say I've heard some good things about him and some bad things, although both sides have mostly used a lot of generic terms.

      Since this is a thread about his passing, I'd ask that people refrain from giving reasons why they didn't like him. I'm just looking for specifics about why people did like him, respect him or otherwise hold a positive opinion ofhim.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      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.

      I respected his courage, he was a vet who was a prisioner of war in Hanoi where he was tortured and kept in solitary and was held for 5 years. At one point they ( the North Vietnamese) learned his father was an admiral and offered to release him but he refused until everyone there was also released. Shows the character of this man and the rest of his life was given in service as a Senator. Wheteher I agreed with his positions or not he was a man that stood tall among men. He was respected by both sides politically which also says a lot about the man. All in all a true class act

      From the article:

      We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe
      How very true. Thanks for the link.
