Yes, politicians and donors must focus on immediately issues (Supreme Court justice appointments) but party leaders like GOP committee chairman Reince Priebus, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wrongly acquiesced to Trump. As columnist Michael Gerson wryly notes, Trump "attacked the Republican establishment as low-energy, cowering weaklings. Now Republican leaders are lining up to surrender to him â€“ like low-energy, cowering weaklings."
Another "anyone but Trump" establishment spin-meister.
The facts are clear.... DT not only won the majority of the Republican delegates but he also exceeded the 1237 delegate threshold needed to win the nomination.
Any and all who tried to resist his nomination was resisting the will of the Republican primary voters. These people need to be marked out for what they are..... the establishment who puts their interests above the will of the people they are supposed to represent.

Those who are left won't be worrying about climate change, though there will be plenty of that too.
Never though of that, Jim.
A nuclear war would reduce population and as an added bonus the ensuing nuclear winter would drop world wide temps. Problem is, these liberal nuts are just crazy enough to do something like that to save the planet. Spooky.

I sure hope your comment is tongue in cheek. Eternal life in heaven is our inheritance and a gift...... not a reward for anything we've done or earned. Jesus paid the price for the Father to be able to freely give that gift.

Probably in preparation of attacks here because we do have a plant here that is connected to repairing the Hummers and other Military part. My daughter teaches close to a military base and their kids are her students. Just need to stay ready for anything I did read the links and yes these people are crazy and deceptive and very much deceived themselves..scary. The one about the setting sun was so funny and after that one maybe I can sleep tonight. ðŸ˜´
Scary stuff sister. I spent some time at the base you speak of many years ago as a young army 2nd Lt. My how things have changed.
Glad to see you posting. I'll keep you and your loved ones in my prayers.

Yes, that's half of it, Lurker. The other half is simply that it's become easy money. They search out these bakerys, place their orders, making sure to let the baker know al about the event and their love, and bang...easy money in the bank not long after.
You've got it Chris. It's a proxy war against Christianity by liberal PC-ism.

Isn't it amazing how some people miss the forest from the trees? Instead of saying "Praise God these people are standing for biblical marriage", some people just want to nitpick and criticize.
Seems that way, bro. Another analogy I like is "Can't see the painting because of the brushstrokes."
Some fail to realize these perverts aren't shopping for a generic cake. The pervs are looking for revenge on those who shamed them into the closet for so long. They will do whatever it takes to provoke a denial of service so they can enlist the ACLU to put them out of business and destroy their lives. That's what their shopping for...... revenge.

Sounds good stand alone. Why not post their doctrine of prevenient grace as a companion? All mankind has a spark of God's grace sufficient for the sinner to turn to God of their own freewill (my understanding of it).
