    Trump is as big of a crook as Clinton. Trump University was a scam. He bribed the Florida AG into not filing a suit on behalf of Floridians who were bilked by Trump.

    Aw big deal. He was a businessman in the private sector. Anybody who's been a business man or known others knows that this par for the course, not all businesses work out. But when you weigh that against what Trump has done, the jobs created, the lives changed, it's really just the Left grasping at straws.

    The Clintons have a lifetime of using their govt. positions to commit fraud and engage in corrupt criminal behavior.

    Dear Lysistrata
    It's a matter of partners being "equally yoked" in the right relationship with each other.

    2 Corinthians 6:14King James Version (KJV)

    14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

    When people are the right partners for each other,
    spiritually, they grow together. If they are not
    "equally yoked" they grow apart, because they
    grow in different directions at different rates,
    and one leaves the other behind.

    This applies to any relationship between any two people,
    to make sure it is never abused.

    It came from the bowels of St. Isles
    A shout that could be heard for miles.
    Oh goodness graceous,
    Does Brother Ignatius
    Know the Archbishop has piles?

    Of course the Archbishop of Canterbury doesnt understand why any Christians would vote for Trump or do anything else.

    He is an Anglican, he doesnt know any Christians.

    This sounds like the kind of crap spread by the cults. Anglicans ARE Christians. The level of education in the U.S. needs to be vastly improved.

    Paul wrote Corinthians, not Jesus. Moreover, even if one believes that Paul somehow spoke for the Supreme Being, the passage only says that the two partners should be equal in their beliefs.

    They claim to be Christians, sure, but they are fakes.

    Christians take the Bible seriously, Anglicans do not and are led by a symbolic secular monarch that is a goofy old woman likely gone senile anyway.

    Hard to get any more antiChrist than that.

    AntiChrist? Honestly. How ridiculous a notion.
    You have no idea what Anglicans believe.
    The only things to be taken seriously are the teachings and actions of Jesus. Not some cherry-picked crap from the Old Testament or the rest of those responsible for the writings that were chosen by Constantine's committee. The only "fakes" are fundie "Christians" usually lead by ignorant, arrogant males in business suits who have the temerity to think that they actually speak for the Supreme Being and have some right to boss everyone else around. What a farce.

    Toxic are the Pauline texts, complete with the sprouts of masonic boy-scoutism. The attempt to force into a template of homogenization for equality's sake is the more serious drug of the authoritarian ego, because it sets the stage for a movement of extreme violence.

    If the tenets apply to any relationship between two people, then the most prominent right now is the Catholic mafiosi, Pence, indignant because someone lied to him. Note how this puppet theatre is synchronized to the appearance of the pope.
