      Racism and bigotry won the day. So sad for USA.

      It looks like #racism and #bigotry won out the day in the midterm. It appears that many in the country still respond positively to hate speech.

      Now some will have you believe that the "Christian" right came out in big numbers. However, while a lot of people on the right came out to protect what is deep within their heart, there is nothing #Christian about racism and bigotry.

      Christ is about love, mercy, compassion, fairness and justice. Don't let anyone fool you into thinking otherwise.

      Keep up the fight guys. Reproduce like there is no tomorrow. Make lots of babies. Be fruitful and multiply. You can't be a minority if there is a lot of you (us). Fill the USA with a lot of brown,black, asian, interacial babies. God wants us to be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Pastors, preachers, ministers, phophets, you will do well to create a culture where babies are a blessing and not a burden.

      Why on Earth would they think that, considering that the Democrats/Socialists won the day!?

      They are the ones you ought logically to be worried about.

      And whatever role the so-called Christian Right played in the elections, that has nothing to do with racism winning something, anyway.
      Sure.

      Can you provide quotes or links that support that Republicans condone hate speech? Much of what is called a hate speech is taken out of context... for instance keeping ms13 and other gangs out of America is titled racist, or that expressing that immigrates should come in the legal way (which Hillary and Obama both agree with) is also somehow racist...
      I personally and honestly do not know where people ever got the idea that Republicans are racist (hate speech)... sounds like a certain party is victimising minorites by playing on their emotions and reminding them who were slaves (african americans) and who were their masters (Caucasians) will we ever move on?
      America (both parties) grant freedom and legal rights to all immigrants but they have to come in legally, im sorry but those who say otherwise are lying and just want your vote.

      While I agree that racism and bigotry are alive and well all around the world and very visibly in USA politics of today and while I also agree that racism and bigotry are contrary to the teaching of Christ I do not agree that making lots of babies is the solution to the problem. But it is an amusing suggestion, I suppose.

      For Christians the answer to racism is compassion for the needy regardless of their skin colour and ethnicity and the answer to bigotry is truth held and proclaimed without fear.
      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.

      The Democrats ARE obsessed with race, skin color, gender, ethnicity.... and the press conveys this constantly. I was SICK of all the talk about women this, women that.... African American this, African American that.... Hispanics this, Hispanics that. It seemed to be all the press and the liberal could talk about. But did all this leftist racism and sexism "win the day?" I don't think so; I think the vast majority of Americans have matured beyond the Kindergarten mentality of the libs and their allies, the press.


      As for the election, in the Senate - where much focus was on the absurdity of the last confirmation - the Republicans made gains. The one Democrat who supported the nominee was re-elected... the Republicans made gains against some who did not.

      In the House, the Democrats gained FAR, FAR fewer seats than anyone predicted... last I heard, only 28 which is EXACTLY the statistical average for the "opposition" party in a mid-term election, so NOTHING of a "wave" or "revolution" or "protest" that so many (even some Republicans) predicted. And most of those newly elected chose to not run against Trump and made it clear they won't support the return of old, radical Democrat/Socialist/Communist leadership.


      I think Trump (whom I did NOT vote for) won the day. He will have an easier time with court appointments AND he now has a clear target for his attacks and blames (the Democratically controlled House). His attacks on the Press (while valid) never sat well with the public (never does) but his attacks on his OWN PARTY (since it controlled both houses) did worse (and only alientated his own party!). Now he has a target... something to blame.... And if those Dems blog down everything with public flamming, legal accusations, hearings, etc. - that will anger the public even mroe than they already are - but with another target.

      Brother Psalms 91 you need a <sarcasm> tag for your post

      I agree with the sentiment you've expressed. But this thread is in the theology section and even though politics in the USA impinges on the answers to the original post the teaching of Christ deals with issues that are wider than USA politics.

      Keep up the good fight, brother Psalms 91, it is part of walking with Jesus Christ here on Earth.
      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.
