    Santized euphemism? Are there people who are not aware that those who celebrate Easter in a church are Christians? Trump didn't bother specifically using the word either.

    Sorry, but I think this is one of the most overhyped nothing burgers I've seen in a long time. Hillary and Obama expressed their condolences, as did Trump. But people overlook that, and are upset because they didn't use the specific verbiage that some prefer? Come on.

    I'm a liberal Christian... In other words I'm a pacifist.

    The BSA was not historically a pro Sodom and Gomorrah love fest happening. Nor should it ever be.

    You want inclusion? How about the left start letting conservative speakers and professors into their universities without wetting themselves and throwing a hissy fit?

    How about they allow Bible-based conservative Christians to head up their pro-gay and pro-abortion organizations to set them on a better path? That's a thought!

    The problem in the US is that some religious people think its all or nothing and they love to play the persecuted victim. Obama had more ethics and morals than most of the foot washing, pentecostal, fundamentalists. They reject science and attack educated people.

    The sort of Christians who play this game are uneducated so they claim persecution to make themselves feel better.

    I think a lot of these guys are just jealous
    of the old timers who found it so easy to
    get martyred.

    It is all in the book about that advantages of
    martyrdom, predictions about getting
    persecuted, but where to find it?
    Preach in N. Korea?
    Wherefore art thou, oh my persecutors!

    The War on Christianity is terrif! it
    fills t he prophecies, and lets them be
    victims of persecution, on the cheap!

    Sounds like your worldview is incompatible with the principles of Scouting. A Scout is friendly - he's "a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from [him]."

    A Scout is also reverent, which in the BSA's formulation includes respecting the beliefs of others.

    The above is nothing short of being complete nonsense. I've seen and heard Ankerberg numerous times in the past, and he has long had a right-wing political agenda.

    Depends on what is meant by conservative viewpoints. Gay is a sin, and creationism are not aspects of any school system, nor should they be.

    I wouldn't know about Pentecostals, but Obama and Crooked Hillary ran a thoroughly corrupt administration, from the IRS targeting of conservatives to having the blood of the Benghzai victims on their hands to lying about Obamacare, etc., etc.

    Well maybe you should let Christ Jesus know that
    All because Christ Jesus doesn't say that in his book of Revelation
    As Muslims will have control over the temple mount until Christ Jesus returns

    As for Matthew 24:15---"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand"

    The holy place being the temple mount, Which the Muslims have control over, until Christ Jesus returns

    Have you any idea who it is that will stand in the holy place, it's the AntiChrist that when he comes will stand in the holy place proclaiming to be the Muslims Messiah

    Says people who are not victims and would like to ignore those who are.

    Are you a victim? I'm not. Trump claims he's a victim and the system is rigged against him.. He's been whining about being a victim since the 1980s.

    Titus and Vaspesian both defiled the Temple. That's the abomination of desolation and that's why the Temple was destroyed. In Revelation there is NO Temple because Jesus is the Temple. Are you reading from some other Bible?

    You don't know anything about Benghazi.. There was NO US consulate there and Congress had passed a ruling that there was NO money for increased security except in Iraq and Afghanistan.
