    A lot of Christians I talked to before the election only needed to know that Trump was anti-abortion.
    Not shocking, most liberal Pope I've ever heard of. Its bad for them when the Pope starts agreeing with liberals, he probably angered the conservatives when he said Trump wasn't a real Christian.

    Yes, anyone against Christ is anti-Christ, but there is a final anti-Christ called The "Lawless One" , The "Man of Sin" .

    I don't think it's even considered a conspiracy, it's fairly obvious the world is moving towards and innocuous One world religion where all the people can belong to it, Jesus or not. Perhaps its just fate though and people don't even plan it, simply fullfilling prophecy towards a Global One world religion with the Anti-Christ as it's final leader.

    The one world religion is the religion of money.

    Interesting topic, On first glance Trumps seems to be promoting the conservative christian churches but he is also putting them in the spotlight so all can see there flaws without a magnifying glass.

    Trumps legacy maybe that he brought all the fringe elements of society, in politics, religion, gender bias and race and jammed them in the face of society so they can be dealt with instead of remaining hidden behind the curtains.

    Very difficult for a rich person to enter the kingdom of god. Impossible.

    Which, of course, is all fair game to selective interpretation to support agendas.

    A study done on how Catholics voted in this last election, as reported in "America" magazine (Jesuit), found that about 60% of white Catholics voted for Trump. But what was interesting is that those from that group who attended mass roughly at least once per week, only 20-some % voted for him (I can't remember the last digit).

    To love thy neighbor as you would love yourself. For this is the greatest commandment of all.

    Eh Father Heathen, just to let you know all nondenominational churches in the Texas area are Evangelical conservative usually spiritfilled some are Pentecostal churches. Its the exact opposite of UU. My particular UU church is Pagan.

    Uh Its a church that embraces all religions and also ATheists and non religious folks ad people who are trying to find a religion but in no way does it resemble the Christian churches of Tx.

    Actually there were two:

    1. To love God with all your heart and,

    2. To love your neighbor as you love yourself.

    There was nothing inherent in these commandments about doing anything else, no matter how altruistic you want to be. Even Yeshua knew he couldn't change nor save the physical world.

    The big problem here is that most people have no idea how to love themselves, this was the secret in the second commandment; and you have to love yourself before you can love another. Once you learn how to really love yourself everything else falls into place.
