    I like JP.
    That probably should go in the Anglican Memes thread.

    Is JP a Trumper? I noticed he has an anti-Biden video.

    I don't know. I don't think he was one back in the Covid days, but maybe since he became a Christian....?

    I like the way citizens are able to sometimes gather around Trump and pray for him. Won't see that with Biden, sadly. (Biden needs prayers, too.)

    At their age (Trump is now the age he said himself was too old for Biden to run), they both do. Couldn't America find anyone younger with wisdom? Perhaps it's the fault of your education system producing a dumb younger generation over there. :laugh:

    A lot of good that’s done… :laugh:
    Not true, but people see what they want to see.

    Are you aware of any times when a significant group of supporters were seen to have gathered around Joe Biden and visibly prayed for him, the way they have often done for Trump?

    Only worldly wisdom, unfortunately. So few have true wisdom now. The ones who haven't been bought off are mostly too doped up to think straight (and plenty are both).

    I know that he has been very open about his faith, up to and including inviting other government leaders to attend Mass with him, on the day of his inauguration for example. As Presidents go, Biden has conspicuously been on the more openly and outwardly religious end of the spectrum. Much more so than Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, or Reagan. Eisenhower was baptized into the Presbyterian church while in office if I remember correctly, and Obama converted to Christianity as an adult. Carter was also known to be devout. I would rank Biden among the latter group. Evangelicals and their peculiar pattern of religious behavior are not the only standard by which such things may be measured.

    I don't think the prayers of the Maga-teers go further than the ceiling, especially those of Mike—Look-at-my-cross-blatantly-pushed-over-my-shirt-collar—Lindell. It's all for show, nothing more. I doubt they give Trump a second thought when now-they-lay-themselves-down-to-sleep on their clunky MyPillows.

    Franklin Graham's alignment with Trump early on was a really bad idea, too. He's now creepily assumed the appearance of his father with flowing white hair.

    I understand President Biden is prayed for by his parish church in Delaware, in private. He's remembered openly in my church's prayer list each Sunday. Not sure if that's helping much, either.

    Wow, you really have judged the hearts of those people, haven't you. You can tell they're insincere, fake Christians whose prayers don't reach God. How exactly did you divine this great truth? Did God reveal it to you in a vision?

    Methinks there is some real hatred going on.

    I once worked in close proximity with many of these "praying" people which is why I couldn't speak out earlier to maintain my anonymity. I was extremely disappointed to see these types for what they were: charlatans. "Hatred," a bit, total disillusionment, yes. It took me, and many of my coworkers and friends, years to rebuild our faith and careers after what we experienced. I'm not judging anyone, just reporting the sad facts that anyone with the slightest bit of discernment should easily see. Those who choose to fawn over these showy "Christian leaders" — on both sides — (with their fake humility reveling in their power connections that draw the weak-minded to hand over their last dollar) need a reality check.

    But by all means, let's watch them gather in "faith" and pray over the grabbing, destructive ex-White House occupant as he faces his 37-count indictment.

    IMO, this indictment should offend each one of us. It is a travesty of so-called justice because (as anyone can see) they only brought these charges for political reasons. The DOJ and FBI, which are part of the Executive branch of government led by Joe Biden, have become politicized and are working in favoritism for one candidate over his poll-leading opponent. It is a clear sign of how corrupt the US government is.

    Talking about "grabbing" and "destructive," just look at the present WH occupant. Yes, the one who kept classified documents after he was a VP and even from when he was still a mere senator! Yes, the "big guy" who got his crooked cut from selling favors! Make no mistake: the Espionage Act does not excuse people who "act nice" or who "quickly give back the classified docs" after they are caught red-handed; the law simply says that possession of classified materials is a serious felony. Where is the indictment for Biden? Where is the investigation of Hunter, when we know what was on his laptop? The criminal who is currently in power uses that power to attack his main political opponent, and half the people in the nation are willing to overlook it simply because they're filled with abject hatred for the opponent. It's a dirty, dirty world, for sure! :sick:

    Wow...getting to be quite a deviation from the OP. I will throw my 0.02 into the mix. I am a conspiracy theorist. Yup, it matters not which man is POTUS here. Our nation runs off a script written by the Soros Cabal, Deep State or whatever else you wish to call it. Don't think so? Just how could either side of the aisle keep doing the things both are doing if they are not part of the script themselves? Joe professes to being a Christian, as does Trump. Will God pick a side? I have but to look at which foundations and organizations are funded by the Soros Cabal and then look at the donor-lists of both parties and see both sides get funding from said groups and organizations and funding. Oh, my...my heart be still. (Yes there is sarcasm in this entry.)

    You are surely not suggesting that Trump is wise in any non-worldly way at all? :laugh: Next you'll be telling us he's an example to the faithful. :clap:I have often wondered how it could possibly be that the masses of the people of the world were so enthralled and duped by the anti-christ. I now know the present phenomen to actually be a viably distinct possibilty, at least in the USA, a harbinger of things possibly to come upon the world.

    Some types of 'thinker', will follow ANYONE that appeals to their basest prejudices.

    Yeah, maybe we should get less serious and have some more satirical humor. Here's Tucker on Twitter
    , explaining why Biden does not fit the profile of a dictator. Hilarious!
