It is not hard to see that Christianity has taken quite a hit in the last 30 years.  While over 70% either believe in God, are Christians, or both, there has been almost nothing in the Liberal campaign backing Christians or to appeal to the evangalicals.

While there has been a continued outcry of discrimination - at the same time there has been an increase of violence  and a collapse of the American family.  How many sitcoms have a healthy American family with a strong dad working, a loving mom taking care of the children and couples not divorcing, cheating, or taking off with the same sex.

While people should have a choice, watching this choice of kissing men with men and women with women is not helping our children or the family unit as a whole.

Perhaps the reason many of the liberals are stocking up is because things may get a little rough as they crack down on immigration, special programs that favor race and gender, and simply want equality. 

There wasn't big press on this but where was Trump on Christmas Eve?  He was in church. How long has it been since we have had a president go to church and mean it?  - not visiting  mosques and become all stressed that Muslims are being persecuted while Christians are being beheaded and crucified for their faith.

Dare we hope that perhaps some semblance of how it used to be in America where people went to church, loved God and had families with a father and mother who loved each other and stayed together?

My family did.

Will there be a rebirth of Christianity in the next 4 years? 

Maybe next Christmas people won't have to hide their mangers anything referrign to Jesus and have the freedom to pray in school.

One should not underestimate the power of this in America. Over 200 milion people at least believe in God or say they do.  The real news on Christmas Eve - you won't see it hardly anywhere but here...

If you mean a a rebirth of "loving your neighbour as yourself" as Jesus summerised the two main points of the "Law", then it would be a good thing....but I don't see that, and the care for the poor, the widows, the orphans, and the foreigners (things that the Bible repeatedly call for us to care about) being high on the right-wing agenda.

"There wasn't big press on this but where was Trump on Christmas Eve?  He was in church"

seriously ? LOL

Trump apparently goes to church on Christmas and he did go when his son was christened
but any other Sunday ?  LMAO

and let me remind everyone of his great biblical scholarship skills
remember when he was giving a speech and mentioned TWO Corinthians ?
what the heck is TWO Corinthians?
any child who has been to Sunday school knows it is second Corinthians for crying out loud
I.m a big ol' heathen and even I know that,having actually read the Bible multiple times in multiple translations  as well as having studied it in original Greek

I just love how these so called Christians like Pence and Falwell Jr. bent themselves into theological pretzels in order to reconcile their political beliefs with their so called religious ones

Trump is married to a trophy wife,his third by the way,he committed adultery NUMEROUS times that we are aware of,screwed thousands of little guys over financially by filing bankruptcy MULTIPLE times
and don't even get me started on the disgusting,vile comments he  has made about women over DECADES
and I have to wonder if Melania took some of her nude photos to pass out in Sunday school class ?
ya thinkClap

but he went to church on XMAS
big freaking deal

can you say COGNITIVE DISSONANCE ?

when push comes to shove,with most people
political beliefs will always trump religious ones  (no pun intended)

Mahatma Gandhi

“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

If there is a rebirth of any kind, I doubt we can attribute it to Trump. The man is clearly not a practicing Christian, and is doing what he's done throughout his campaign and saying what plays well on stage. Remember when he was asked what his favorite biblical verses were? It's clear that he was taken completely off guard, and blustered his way out of the question with no dignity whatsoever. The look on the interviewer's face said it all. Christians were lied to as much as anyone to gain their vote.

I have to give Trump a LOT of credit
he is a master propagandist
he has a real gift
he knows what people want to hear
and he gives it to them

Trump adopting same behavior he criticized Clinton for

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-exhibiting-clinton-behavior-president-elect-143221842.html


and the best part of all is that when he fails to follow through

his supporters make every excuse possible for his behavior

he's a freakin' GENIUS

Hillary should have took lessons

i am an athiest,

i dont beleive that Jesus was the 

'SON OF GOD' as i dont believe in a god,

however,i do and have read the bible ,

and i think i am more 'CHRISTIAN' than most poeple that say they are ,

Jesus said and did many good things and the Bible is a good guide to live your life by.....

and unlike trump,one of my favorite Bible verses is Matthew 19:12

and it brings to mind the LBGTQI.....people

JESUS LOVED ALL,and bought them all into his CREW.....



PEACE AND LOVE  TO ALL

"American Nazis Rising as Trump’s Armed Brownshirts to Target Jews"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't his daughter marry a Jew, and convert to judaism?

"Ivanka Trump's Jewish Faith: 11 Things To Know About Donald Trump's Daughter And Judaism. Before marrying Jared Kushner in 2009, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump's older daughter, converted to Judaism. She and her husband describe themselves as “Orthodox,” one of the three main strands of modern Judaism.

Makes me wonder, if the Central Bankers didn't finance Lenin and the Bolshevik Revolution would there have been a Hitler and National Socialist Party? The Devil always plays both ends against the middle!

carbon20- Saying you are a Christian and being a Christian are two very different things! "When Fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross (bible)"! Don't remember who said it but truer words were never written. I don't see anything good coming so I'm prepping even harder! Hope we're still having this conversation in four years!

‘Charlatan’ Evangelist To Pray With Trump At Inauguration


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/paula-white-donald-trump-inauguration_us_58652b51e4b0de3a08f76147

It’s a tactic that other religious leaders frown upon. Earlier this year, Southern Baptist leader and Trump critic Russell Moore tweeted out his distaste of White, Politico reported.

“Paula White is a charlatan and recognized as a heretic by every orthodox Christian, of whatever tribe,” the tweet read."


do a little research on this piece of work

and while yer at it

why not send her $115 LOL
