Religion seems instead of bringing people together, it sows hatred. And worse seems to be intent on control, power and money, and not your spiritual well being. 

 

I can't figure out what people see in Trump. He's a con man, and a spoiled brat. With a series of trophy wives, and bankruptcies. Come on this is a guy who built a casino in Atlantic City and it failed. 

 

when your starting point is "anything but a democrat" then a lot of options look good to some people.

Abrahamic faiths worship the same God, and they sure do espouse hate.  But this hatred in the US is different.  It’s a false political divide that is entrenched in their society on almost every level.  

I do think someone can objectively argue the majority of hateful stuff is coming from the right, but certainly not all of it. But if you look at where most of the religious divide is, the gun worship, the militia's, the militarized policing, idolization of the leader at the top  - thats all firmly on the right. 

 

OTOH, people on the left get really miffed when you misuse a pronoun. 

 

I just don't see the level of entrenched hatred on the left as I do on the right. If the religious folks e.g. stopped trying to control women's health, the lefties would leave them alone.

I've mentioned this before, but even though I'm no longer a believer, I was raised Catholic and the Jesus that I was taught about would be absolutely appalled by Trump and even more so by the fact that so many Christians support him...

 

He's a liar, a cheat, a thief and an adulterer and specifically, his policy of forced family separation at the southern border as a deterrent to immigration should make any true Christian recoil. Yet they hew to him as if he's the messiah himself. (some of the more extreme ones even act as if that's exactly what he is)

 

I really have no idea how they manage to square that circle....

Hey, I'm getting a little bit tired of you using the prefix 'pro' to describe a noun; why not call it a con noun once in awhile, huh?

We need a separate thread to discuss religion.

oh man I'd love that. Maybe if I volunteered to moderate it @-SN- might go for it, but then again maybe not :lol: not sure just one moderator could handle that thread.
