    Well, shit.................they also compared Moore and his chasing of a 14 year old girl to Mary and Joseph, Jesus' parents.

    It doesn't surprise me anymore what the conservatives are willing to bastardize to try to push their agenda.

    This stuff is so surreal. Christians have been continually under attack in this country as well as the values they stand for especially during the obama administration. Christians have been slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands in the Middle East. Where have you been for the last decade,arch bishop and what have you been doing. Your comments are a disgrace to your position and your religion. You apparently don’t know jack about America.

    I am a Christian and I didn't vote for Trump. I don't want to speak for others, but it seems to me that many people felt (as they do every four years) that they had no choice but to vote for the party candidate, in order to vote against the greater evil. As I said on another thread, every four years people are manipulated into voting for someone that they wouldn't otherwise support because they're so fearful of the opposing candidate winning… In this case Hillary, who is the worst possible person to become president and should be nowhere near any position of power, let alone the White House again.

    I can't tell you how many people I heard say "I dislike Trump but I don't want Hillary to win." Or people who didn't vote at all but were happy that Hillary lost, not that Trump won.

    Simple, Archbishop. What is being called "Christianity" today in the U.S. is a falsehood, a bastardization of the faith. The "Christian" fundamentalists in the U.S. are not actually followers of the teachings of Jesus. Far from. They are a cult that has insulted the Christian brand and dragged it, and the teachings and life of Jesus, through the mud. It's pathetic.
    The Christian faith is supposed to have high standards. Instead we get low-life gutter people like "Focus on the Family," the "Family Research Council," Frankie Graham, Dobson, Timmy Dolan, Pat Robertson, the "Duck" guy. There are Christians here in the U.S. who are trying to uphold the sanctity, honor, and holiness of the faith, but they do not have a place in front of the microphone. Those who repudiate the life and teachings of Jesus, but "praise his name" but not his doings are now in control.
