I actually voted almost entirely 3rd party sans Trump. I'm a believer in small govt and christian values. The democrats don't offer a candidate that is even close to my beliefs and principles.
christian values? well you sure as hell didn't vote for those

Because it's definitely not helping the poor, needy, sick or displaced. It's not offering charity. It's not going into the crowds and seeking out those who are being persecuted and building them up, or leading them to the Lord. It's not loving your neighbor as yourself. So what, PLEASE, tell me WHAT is it exactly about his values that are so Christian?

I've tried so hard for so long to enjoy Seinfeld. I will even laugh at a good amount of it - the marine biologist is genuinely great TV.

But it doesn't draw me in. It really is exactly where my sense of humour is, but...it just doesn't do me.

If you dare tell me you like planes or something else I can/could like, we're going to have to disengage on politics.

I will also be fair and say you aren't a [pre-redacted] poster like deep, diamond, this bob saget [pre-redacted]. I owe it to you, and my own beliefs to raise the tone.

With that said, can we all agree, nobody likes England, right?

If someone incites Christian values, they almost certainly do not live them.

I'm a full blown agnostic, I've known enough Christian people who go to church every week, and think that their hour or two on a Sunday gets them a free pass to be awful during the week.

I live more Christian values in an hour than some of these people do in a week. If I do something wrong, I admit my mistake, say sorry, move on. I don't ignore it because I go to a building on a Sunday.

The worst lie in society is Christian values.

Edit: This is not a slight at people who attend church. It's an attack on people who attend church, praise their lord, atone for their sins (by wearing nice clothes on Sunday and sitting in a building for a bit) and then go out and put a roman candle to those values.

I consider a economically liberal, socially inclusionary mindset to be far more Christian than whatever the GOP is pushing. Trump can't even pretend to fold in with the Evangelical extremists. You can't squint hard enough to make that man look Christian.

Okay nobody who isn't from there loves England.

Disclaimer: 50% Scottish and a large percentage Irish and Welsh, but I'm a New Zealander. Basically every possible way to hate England.

i think England should just leave the United Kingdom - it would make life so much easier for everyone else re. Brexit - keep the little Englanders happy, they'd have their "sovereignty", and everyone else could breathe a huge sigh of relief and carry on as normal!

Suits me. Suits my Scottish father who is the least conservative 86 year old you can find.
