Re: To the shock and surprise of nobody...

There's wiggety wacks in all groups, like I said before. Who knows, maybe one day one of them crazy Evangelicals might become one of your friends. I have Evangelical friends. I completely oppose them politically and think their religion is a joke, but I share beers with them. That's the beauty of A...

Re: To the shock and surprise of nobody...

They are human and do dumb stuff just like any other group. Then own up to it. My beef with Evangelicals is their incessant need to create a Theocratic nation, especially when their version of theocracy revolves around the suppression of opposing ideologies. And on top of that, the religious hypocr...

Re: To the shock and surprise of nobody...

I hate when crap like that happens. A real black eye for evangelicals. I don't even take Evangelicals as if they're serious Christians anymore. They're one of the most likely religious groups to get divorced/remarried, have premarital sex and children born out of wedlock, be against policies helpin...

Re: The Cult of Donald...

I totally understand voting for Trump based on his policies. But honestly, I disagree that Evangelicals are morally hypocritical for voting for Trump. The morals of Evangelicals mirror Trump's; the difference is that Trump stands behind his actions while Evangelicals use twisted religious logic to ...

Re: The Cult of Donald...

True, you don't want your leaders to have morals like Donald Trump. How many recent presidents or even politicians have had great morals, Jimmy Carter. Sure there are a lot of hypocrites out there, but it doesn't mean that every evangelical that voted for Trump is one of those. Obama appeared to re...

Re: Migrant Caravan

I'm in the group of giving all immigrants a chance. My family hired migrant workers from Mexico, in the summer for sugar beets, when I was young. Most were hard workers, as I worked beside them in the field. No one really cared then if they were citizens or not. Some stayed and became citizens and ...

Also mentioned morals, as in Trump having different morals than what are perceived by Evangelicals. Anyone that bashed Clinton for his affairs, and is okay with Trumps affairs would be a hypocrite, but if they didn't like either Presidents affairs, and still voted for them, it doesn't make them a h...

Re: The Cult of Donald...

If a conservative Evangelical votes for a conservative Muslim candidate, is the Evangelical considered a hypocrite? They may not have the same personal beliefs, but might have the same political agenda. An yes, it would by hypocritical to criticize a liberal Muslim over the same beliefs that the co...

Right. They had 16 options and personally - Kasich was their best bet (even though he's from Ohio).

I still don't see the hypocrisy of voters, voting for a candidate that promises them to support their causes. The candidates background may turn off a few, but it comes down to who has the better chance of supporting your cause. So that's why, IMO, Trump had 46 % of Evangelical Christians voting fo...
