    It's the flag of the Catholic Church!

    Thanks for that. I Googled him and his name was Edward Curtis, born 1868. He did some amazing photography. I think I have heard of him.

    In that photograph of the Inuit family my father took everyone looked hale and hearty. My father's location was Isachsen, Ellef Ringnes Island, within the arctic circle, so they were pretty isolated. I think there may still be a weather station there. What my dad pointed out was that, at least among the men he worked with, no one ever got sick, despite the cold. He told me that winter temperatures sometimes reached -60 F., that the frost on the inside of the windows was 6 inches thick and that they always (in winter) had to break the ice on the toilet before using it. Yet within days of returning home he landed in hospital. He later decided that if there were no germs there was no illness and thought that the year in isolation must have compromised his immune system.

    I imagine that very sick Inuit family Curtis came across was the result of them living too close to civilization. I am certainly sympathetic to the plight of the Inuit today. As you point out their numbers have significantly increased, but they have some very real problems. I doubt few of them would want to return to a wholly traditional way of life though, so I don't know what the answer might be, but I definitely agree with you: they have lost their way.

    Golly, the same people had a poll showing Hillary Clinton was going to win the 2016 election!

    LOL

    Look, this thread is about whether you pray for President Trump. If you want to start your own thread about how he is supposedly a racist, go ahead, and see how your arguments go. Stop trying to hijack this thread. Regardless of your opinion that he is racist, the question is do you pray for him? Although when you stop and think about it, someone that thinks he is a racist has more reason to pray for him, not less.

    Shalom

    That's what every conservative talking head repeats. That isn't proof that all polls can't be trusted from here on out. That's pretty simple thinking.

    All polls had Hillary winning, even RW polls. But I'd bet you still believe the RW polls. Polls didn't take into account the propaganda attack via RW media and Russia influencing the vote. Even after all that noise, Trump still couldn't win more votes than Hillary.

    Does it bother you that the majority of jews vote democratic? Why do you think that is?

    It waves at many Catholic Churches or inside the Church typically

    To the OP, actually I do, but too bad Trump doesn't pray for Trump as he admits he doesn't pray and doesn't need God's forgiveness.

    For Christians sticking it to us non Trump supporters, by telling us to pray for him, DID YOU PRAY FOR OBAUMA AND CLINTON? Did you pray for God to bless Obauma and Clinton and to use them for Gods work?

    I have prayed to God to change Trumps heart towards women and stop sexually harrassing women. and I have also prayed for God to work through him.

    I never said that all polls can’t be trusted. I pointed out that the AP polls have issues. You may dismount your high horse at your leisure.

    Jews are not a monolith. Some vote Democratic others don’t. Those that vote Democratic tend to be more secular. It all depends on the candidates. It doesn’t bother me. It may surprise you to learn that Jews don’t always agree amongst themselves. ;)

    Here in America, jews vote democratic. I didn't say all jews, the majority do. Asians vote democratic too. Do you know why?

    You win the award of making the biggest understatement of the century. Do you want the medal or the money? :)
