The only way to deal with "those people" (and remember, they're all one big indistinguishable faceless horde anyway!) is with retaliation so disproportionate it's a war crime.

That'll keep us safe.

I don't think anyone here has actually advocated that. Consider

I'm precisely as serious as birdguy was.

Good point. Now, if only I believed TTA'ers who say they have morals yet no absolutes! Because what is implied is their morals may change on a whim. And that's as disturbing as anything, if not more so, than Donald J. says!

Excluded-middle fallacy spotted -- changes aren't necessarily whimsical.

Surely you weren't expecting honesty at this point?

I mean, there's the ol' personal incredulity in there, too, not to mention the appeal to consequences.

Another example of excluded-middle thinking.

Oh, I know better than that, just wanted to sound smart for a change. Smile

Aw, what am I thinking! Facepalm This is religion were talking about. Of course they're not going to condemn Donald Trump. Of course they're going to look the other way, besides he'd fit perfectly in the Old Testament. Silly, silly me, expecting morality from religion. Dodgy

Mormons support Ted Cruz. Big win for him in Utah!!!

Q:How do you protest Donald Trump?
A: You go to vote for another person(someone you support)
This is what civilized people do.

RE: Church leaders and Donald Trump
I am a Free Thinker and I support Donald Trump. Q, you have a point when it comes to social pressure. Most Americans I know who rejected religion are leftist.

I am not at all surprised that the only thing anyone on the left has to say about Trump, is that he is a sexist, racist, homophobe! The only person in the thread who asks for an example gets nothing but a deflection and an un-cited quote?

No thanks. I don't buy it.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.

Why do you support him? why? why?

I support him because I hate both political parties and the political correctness they endorse. I want to watch the party establishment scramble for an identity after he bulldozes them.
