    Let's just say that the word 'Christianist' is a pejorative term that has NO PLACE in a civil conversation and leave it at that. :smile:
    It would if I were to call Fishhead such - but I didn't. I've met him personally, he's an OK guy! But there certainly are Christianists out there, and they make a huge amount of noise.
    Let's not be putting words in my mouth that I never said nor implied. I NEVER said nor implied that you called Fisheadjib any name, good nor bad, nor indifferent. Understand?

    And Christianist IS a pejorative name. It paints with a very broad brush. As I already said, it's a hateful term whose use has no place in a civil conversation.

    Woa, woa, woa, woa! I think we have a serious communications problem here. From your reaction, I think I'm saying one thing, and you're hearing another.

    For the first - completely understand - and I wasn't trying to imply that "you did" - such was not my intent.

    For the second, we'll have to agree to disagree - there are such, just as there are Islamists. I wasn't trying to say "all (or most) Christians are Christianists", quite the opposite! Just because its a "hateful term" doesn't mean such doesn't exist - just like there are real "A.H."-es out there. I'm not sure we're communicating adequately - if I'm still not making sense, let's take this to PM or email and hash it out. I consider you a friend, and enjoy your posts immensely - you make a LOT of sense.

    You guys keep using Bill Clinton as an example. How about these two Democrats?

    Gary Hart
    John Edwards

    If Trump was held to the standards that sunk those two as opposed to Bubba, he would be toast. The moral equivalency argument I see used here is a joke. None of these men had the integrity to honor their vows and not stick their junk where it doesn't belong. I wouldn't trust any of them with the contents of an outhouse either.

    Moral equivalency....LMAO....we are talking about political figures. This whole conversation and a large majority of ALL politicians are quite laughable. I don't care who bangs who. Seems to me most of America does not have the integrity to honor their vows anymore.

    Politicians and prostitutes have a lot in common- - - - -the only difference is the hookers are willing to admit they're for sale to the highest bidder.  Trump has made enough money- - - -legitimately or otherwise doesn't make much difference to me- - - -that he doesn't have to sell himself to anyone.  What he does in his supposedly private life, and whom he does it with doesn't matter to me at all. 


    Those who deny the existence of a higher power will have all of eternity to regret their foolish arrogance.  It's not up to any of us to do anything other than feel a deep sense of regret and sorrow for them.

    The problem with that statement Jerry is that years ago, both Eric and Don Jr. are quoted as saying that they got a lot of their money from Russia. All these Russian oligarchs were looking for a place to park their cash legally and illegally and an American developer that had lousy credit due to some bad business decisions and his various bankruptcies that couldn't get credit from regular sources would have been a convenient partner for them.

    While what I just said is total speculation and I hope it isn't true, there are a whole lot of Russian coincidences with that guy. He may owe a whole lot more people than we think.

    The problem with being rich isn't so much making the money, but keeping the money. If something like that were (heaven forbid) true, his entire world would come crashing down on top of him.
