Re: The Georgia senatorial race

You are aware, are you not, that Vox leans heavily to the left?

Re: The Georgia senatorial race

What is "misandristic"? Dictionary.com does not recognize the word. (Misandry, of course, is the hatred of all males. Are you suggesting that he is guilty of hating his own gender?)

Re: North Korea’s Provocative Missile Ploy Threatens the U.S.—and Trump. Will He Go B

As much as I hate to admit it, I think that President Trump may be engaging in some wishful thinking as regarding North Korea (and Russia, too).

Understandably enough, he wishes to defuse the...

Re: The Georgia senatorial race

I think that is known as the fallacy of the complex question.

You are assuming, in the premise, that Mr. Kemp is a "cheat"; and that he wishes to "skew" the election.

All you have to back that...

Re: Unmarried sexual relations

There is too much here for me to respond to it all.

Let me just say that this is why I brought up the foot washing of the first century: It was practical for then, but has no relevance to...

The Georgia senatorial race

Stacey Abrams--in an act of defiance and supreme bitterness--has refused to concede (even though she has admitted that she cannot hope to overcome her opponent's lead); and she blames the state for...

Re: Unmarried sexual relations

I am merely referring to what the various lexicons say about the meaning (and implications) of porneia.

I really do not think that these lexicons are "watered down" in their translations.

Re: Michael Avenatti arrested on suspicion of domestic violence: LAPD

This is an enormously one-sided article. Whereas it may hint at the truth, it also may not.

It would probably be better not to take a purely partisan stance.

Re: Michael Avenatti arrested on suspicion of domestic violence: LAPD

If this assault charge is true--and I will reserve judgment for now--it suggests an enormous amount of hypocrisy, given the (apparent) moral outrage Mr. Avenatti showed over the unproven charges...

Re: How Many Official Democrat Party 2020 presidential Candidates Will There Be?

You are correct. According to most sources, he considered a run in 1980--but ultimately decided against it. (In other words, he could have run again--but did not choose to do so.)

Re: How Many Official Democrat Party 2020 presidential Candidates Will There Be?

Actually, I can remember now (sorta-kinda, anyway): It was in November of 1980.

But this deserves an asterisk by it. (Why? Because the sitting president at that time--Gerald Ford--was never...

Here, I think, is an interesting question:

From a Christian standpoint--not from a contemporary societal standpoint, but from a purely Christian standpoint--is it always immoral to have sexual...

Re: How Many Official Democrat Party 2020 presidential Candidates Will There Be?

It is enormously unusual for a sitting president to be unseated by an unfaithful party member. (In fact, I cannot even remember when this last happened.)

Also unusual is for a sitting president...

Re: CNN Sues Trump And Staff After Acosta Booted

A few thoughts on the matter:

(1) I think President Trump probably over-reacted in pulling this man's press pass. It made the president appear petty and churlish.

(2) That said, Jim Acosta...

Re: Trump - "I'm a Nationalist"

Dictionary.com gives one (and only one) definition of "patriotism." It is as follows:

"devoted love, support, and defense of one's country; national loyalty.

That certainly sounds a lot like...

Re: Trump - "I'm a Nationalist"

A synonym (typically preferred by the left) for code words is "dog whistles." (One sees it almost everywhere nowadays.)

Re: Trump - "I'm a Nationalist"

You are certainly correct in nothing that the mere fact that black people in America are typically lower on the socio-economic ladder than white people is not a function of "lazi[ness].

I find it rather interesting that you would consider the president of France to be "the leader of the free world."

Re: Liberals blame white women for Democrats’ failures in midterm elections – and the

This is simply political spin (as opposed to serious, unbiased analysis).

And as such, it is undeserving of the real attention of any serious person.
