    Lol!!! That’s awesome.

    That’s true for my generation and the Boomers like @Just_A_Guy-but younger religious leaders tend to be much more welcoming of those with tattoos, blue hair, etc. You'll still get some eye rolls but in 2022 that’s fading away. Good riddance.

    Good. I think religion is a good thing so I’m hoping that the decline in church affiliation is overstated. However, I’m not stupid or sticking my head in the sand. The Southern Baptists (the most common religion where I live) are shaking in their boots because of shrinking numbers. For years they thought it (reports of membership decline) was a left wing media conspiracy or they just denied the reports, turned up the music and kept the lights off. Now the problem is far worse because their pride didn’t allow then to accept reality. I hope other churches listen and learn from them.

    I’m not saying you are wrong-but with people leaving organized religion in record numbers, I’m not sure this is the case, sadly.

    Is the church helping you out?

    Mid-term election Predictions

    I understand where you are coming from, even if I disagree. We were so divided back then that it led to an actual, legit war. We’re not there in 2022.

    Okay. Well, I’m sorry I came across that way. You are, of course, free to comment and talk about any issue you’d like.

    That’s fine FP, I understand fully. But that sounds like “your team” lost the Super Bowl on a questionable call. That’s unfortunate-but no matter what you say from here you can’t go back in time. Perhaps it best if the right focuses on regrouping and winning in 2024 rather than talking about how bad the referee’s call was.

    Sorry my friend, but Biden is president. Trump lost.

    Trump won because he wasn’t Hillary. The moment the democrats ran anyone other than her, he lost. Now, back to division for a second. Did Obama help? Not really. Like many others here I also think he was not a great president. He didn't start the division though. We’ve been very divided as a nation for 100+ years now. And that’s okay. Frankly, I don’t want to unite politically with people who don’t share my values. I’m blessed with having right wing friends, left wing friends and apolitical friends. I have a great ability to be friends with people who I don’t agree with politically. One thing we all agree on is that we’d never vote for one another if we ran for office!

    I’d love for politics to be a pretty, polite game between gentlemen but that’s so naive that it’s a little ridiculous. The truth is that if someone can’t handle division, personal attacks, one side winning and one side losing-they should not even think about following politics.

    All good points. You might be right.

    Chilling. And let’s be honest. Democrats would have a huge problem here if the justices were going to overturn Heller vs DC and a conservative law clerk leaked this. Hypocrisy at it’s finest.

    I feel it was the Clinton impeachment that really stepped it up. However, we were always divided as a country. Look at political cartoons from the Civil War. They were brutal.

    Republicans don't want it either, but I think the word “compromise” in politics is silly. Will pro lifers “compromise” with pro choicers? Who budges? Who gives what up? Also, no one wins a “compromise”. All you do is anger the bases of both parties. The “reasonable moderate voters” don’t exist in great numbers anymore. Compromise is great in your personal life but seldom works out in politics.

    It appears Roe Vs. Wade is about to be overturned.

    That’s cool. I totally disagree, but if that’s “your view and you are sticking with it.” It’s pointless to explain any further.

    It appears Roe Vs. Wade is about to be overturned.

    Right, that was also an insurrection. Hideous, actually.
  21. LDSGator

    It appears Roe Vs. Wade is about to be overturned.

    Oh, we agree on that. We differ here: if the Qanon crowd were leftists, the right would think it’s an insurrection bordering on the Storming of the Bastille.
  22. LDSGator

    It appears Roe Vs. Wade is about to be overturned.

    Perhaps. Whatever the reasons, let’s not forget that the last “insurrection” no matter how laughably inept, was not put on by the left.

    It appears Roe Vs. Wade is about to be overturned.

    The same things the Qanon crowd did when Trump refused to accept that he had lost?
