Wisdom and Aphorisms from President Trump: Great Leader, Great Teacher, Great Supreme Commander, Great Helmsman of our Nation


#20742

It’s not his body or how he looks or what he chooses to eat or how fit or unfit he is, it’s his compulsive need to lie about… everything and drag everyone around him into that lie.


#20743

I would gladly treat him this way. Unfortunately nothing I do will affect him in any way.


#20744

I’m sure DJT will turn those numbers around after he incoherently delivers Stephen Miller’s incoherent speech.


#20745

He’s going to call for “unity”

But then this


#20746

Yeah, fuck this bloated turd.


#20747

#20748

So the president of the United States is Pee Wee Herman?


#20749

He’s just playing 78D Gnip-Gnop.


#20750

Truest thing I have heard Trump say in a long time (except the part of Biden being dumb). For many politicians, gaffes are accidents that are a result of little sleep and stress. When Trump says something horrific, he actually believes everything he says and has 0 regret for any of it.


#20751

Does confabulation really count as believing?


#20752

#20753

It’s simply unreal that this piece of trash is President, after all the grifting and corruption. And people want him re-elected. I just can’t handle the absurdity of it all.


#20754

Because no matter how bad he is, he’s better than any George Soros/Killary candidate. Trump will only steal your wallet and sentence you to serfdom. The Left will force you live in Section 8 housing and make you use food stamps, take your guns, and give your children condoms and then tell them where to get abortions when they forget to wear the condoms.


#20755

Damnit Joe Biden


#20756

So…this gaffe is on purpose? Qanon must be buzzing. Trump is going to try to return us to the pre-civil rights era!


#20757

Try? His Supreme Court has already gutted the VRA.


#20758

If all religions just instantly disappeared tomorrow, the world would be a better place. It’s got to be the most manipulated human creation in world history. Everyone using it for the their own purposes, usually for their own personal or political gains.


#20759

I can sympathize with the point of view, even if I don’t agree with the conclusion; religion has frequently been used as a tool of oppression and cruelty throughout the ages. However, I view such malice as an offshoot of human nature rather than something inherent to religion. Do we have some messed up things in religions? Yep. But to me, that’s a reflection of who we are. If religion wasn’t a thing, my pessimistic view is that we’d simply find something else to use to beat people over the head with.


#20760

Yeah, religion doesn’t make people evil.
Religion is just a tool that some bad people use to do bad things. Those people would just use something else to do their bad stuff if religion didn’t exist.

And for a few billion people, religion is an important part of their lives and how they engage their communities, and has all kinds of benefits to them and others.

Homophobia is rooted in religion. Cultures without religious homophobia are tolerant of LGBTs. There are centuries of oppression and murder that can be directly attributed to religion.

  • The Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, have traditionally forbidden sodomy, believing and teaching that such behavior is sinful.

  • While requiring uprightness in all matters of morality, whether sexual or otherwise, the Bahá’í teachings also take account of human frailty and call for tolerance and understanding in regard to human failings. In this context, to regard homosexuals with prejudice would be contrary to the spirit of the Bahá’í teachings.

  • Hinduism has taken various positions, ranging from positive to neutral or antagonistic. Referring to the nature of Samsara, the Rigveda, one of the four canonical sacred texts of Hinduism says ‘Vikruti Evam Prakriti’ (perversity/diversity is what nature is all about, or, what seems unnatural is also natural). A “third gender” has been acknowledged within Hinduism since Vedic times. Several Hindu texts, such as Manu Smriti and Sushruta Samhita, assert that some people are born with either mixed male and female natures, or sexually neuter, as a matter of natural biology. However, Hindu texts like the Manusmirti do treat Homosexuality as a sin legally punishable. in addition, each hindu denomination had developed distinct rules regarding sexuality, as hinduism is not unifyed and is decentralized in essence.
    Several Hindu religious laws contain injunctions against homosexual activity, while some Hindu theories do not condemn lesbian relations and some third-gendered individuals were highly regarded. Hindu groups are historically not unified regarding the issue of homosexuality, each one having a distinct doctrinal view

  • According to the Pāli Canon & Āgama (the Early Buddhist scriptures), there is not any saying that same or opposite gender relations have anything to do with sexual misconduct, and some Theravada monks express that same-gender relations do not violate the rule to avoid sexual misconduct, which means not having sex with someone under age (thus protected by their parents or guardians), someone betrothed or married and who have taken vows of religious celibacy.
    Some later traditions gradually began to add new restrictions on sexual misconduct, like non-vagina sex, though its situations seem involving coerced sex. This non-vagina sex as sexual misconduct view is not based on what Buddha’s said, but from some later Abhidharma texts.

  • Sikhism has no written view on the matter, but in 2005, a Sikh religious authority described homosexuality as “against the Sikh religion and the Sikh code of conduct and totally against the laws of nature,” and called on Sikhs to support laws against gay marriage. Many Sikhs are against this view, however, and state that the Sikh Scriptures promote equality and do not condemn homosexuality

  • Zoroastrianism - The man that lies with mankind as man lies with womankind, or as woman lies with mankind, is a man that is a Daeva [demon]; this man is a worshipper of the Daevas, a male paramour of the Daevas… the penance for a worshipper who submits to sodomy under force as “Eight hundred stripes with the Aspahe-astra, eight hundred stripes with the Sraosho-charana.” (equal to the penalty for breaking a contract with the value of an ox) and declares that for those participating voluntarily “For that deed there is nothing that can pay, nothing that can atone, nothing that can cleanse from it; it is a trespass for which there is no atonement, for ever and ever”.

  • There is no single official position on homosexuality in Taoism, as the term Taoism is used to describe a number of disparate religious traditions. In a similar way to Buddhism, Taoist schools sought throughout history to define what would be sexual misconduct. The precept against Sexual Misconduct is sex outside your marriage. The married spouses (夫婦) usually in Chinese suggest male with female, though the scripture itself does not explicitly say anything against same-gender relations. Many sorts of precepts mentioned in the Seven Slips of Cloudy Satchel (雲笈七籤), The Mini Daoist Canon, does not explicitly say anything against same-gender relations as well. Homosexuality is not unknown in Taoist history, such as during the Tang dynasty when Taoist nuns exchanged love poems. Attitudes about homosexuality within Taoism often reflect the values and sexual norms of broader Chinese society
