The Donald Disses POWs - Dump Trump


Donald Trump made this statement last Saturday regarding Senator John McCain: "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

Trump's latest verbal diarrhea is a slap in the face to the thousands of American servicemen who suffered as prisoners of war. First of all these men stood in harm's way. Then these brave men withstood starvation and torture in captivity. Many died. Does Trump believe these men should have fought to the death in a banzai charge or kamikaze attack instead of being captured so they meet his narrow definition of what a hero is?

Trump is old enough to have served in the Vietnam War. He never volunteered and took steps to avoid the draft. He is the last person to criticize the war record of those who did serve.

On a nearly daily basis Trump displays that he does not have the judgment to be president. Speaking plainly is one thing, speaking plain stupid is something else.


Time to dump Trump.

Here's Where The Bible Predicted Same Sex Marriage

In Matthew 24 Jesus is speaking to his disciples about the last days preceding his Second Coming. In verse 37 to 39 he says:
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Eating and drinking in Bible speak refers to wild drunken behavior. I can understand why Jesus would condemn this. However, in the past I was confused why "marrying and giving in marriage" is lumped in with the wild party lifestyle -- after all, Christians are encouraged to marry and marriage is ordained of God.

Now that the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that same sex marriage is the law of the land, the meaning of this scripture is much clearer. Marriage is not the problem. The key word is "They." Who is the "They" that are "marrying and giving in marriage?" It is the people who reject God. The party hardy crowd both in the time of Noah and in the present took it upon themselves to reject traditional marriage and champion same sex marriage.

Christians can read this scripture as the fulfillment of a prophesy. Is America in line for God to come down with a "Cecil B. DeMille style" whopping?

We shall see.
