    Oh...it's real. The pope's public persona is a panderer. He said what he really thinks behind closed doors. And why is that a surprise? Gay priests in particular cause the church a lot of headache. Most of the pedophile victims have been boys molested by gay priests. (See: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6026962/) So of course he'd rather not be dealing with this. If nothing else the ongoing scandal costs the church real money.

    Yeah...that lasted for what? 24 hours? Still it shows what we all knew which is he is the Pandering Pope. https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/pope-francis-apologises-after-homophobic-slur-vatican-2024-05-28/ VATICAN CITY, May 28 (Reuters) - Pope Francis, widely quoted as having used a highly derogatory word to describe the LGBT community, did not intend to use homophobic language and apologises to anyone offended by it, the Vatican said on Tuesday. It is extremely rare for a pope to issue a public apology. "The pope never intended to offend or express himself in homophobic terms, and he apologises to those who felt offended by the use of a term reported by others," Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said in an emailed statement. The man is a Jesuit just like Dr. Fauci. The whole purpose of the Jesuit order is to reunite Christendom under the papacy. How could he ever accomplish that and ostracize the LGBTQ+ tribe? It's not principles. It's politics. Church politics.

    Support for same sex marriage dropped for the first time last year. https://thehill.com/homenews/lgbtq/4526784-support-same-sex-marriage-dips-first-time-decade/ That's probably because a supermajority of Americans are against the transitioning of children. http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?562618-Washington-Post-poll-finds-supermajority-of-Americans-against-gender-affirming-care-for-minors&highlight=supermajority

    Last time I checked kidnapping is not only a crime but it's also the initiation of violence. You aren't even close to being a libertarian here. This is bizarre. In your world view someone stealing "private data" from a Mexican drug cartel would be the "bad guy" but the person kidnapping and murdering people to protect said "private data" are the heroes? Okay. Right. So Trump promising to offer someone a pardon after Trump is no longer in office means more than an actual president offering someone deal while he's still in office? Dude you are off in the head! Trump had FOUR YEARS to offer pardons and declined to do so and is now clearly pandering. Biden sucks, but he has actually started the process of rescheduling marijuana. Trump had four years to do that and didn't. Promises made after someone is out of office are lame ASF. Edit : I looked up the indictment for this guy. This is what you're defending. On or about February 8, 2013, ROSS WILLIAM ULBRICHT, a/k/a "DreadPirate Roberts," ak/a "DPR," communicated with the UC via the Internet, to discuss the murder of the Employee. The UC stated that the assassins were in place, but waiting for the Employee to be alone because the Employee lived with a daughter and wife. The UC further advised that once the Employee was alone, "they will go in and torture him to get your money" and "after that is done, then they get him out ofthe house and then take he somewhere where they can kill him" ROSS WILLIAM ULBRICHT, a/k/a "Dread Pirate Roberts," a/kla "DPR," replied, 'just let me know when it's done. e are still a go."

    In this case the "customers" are criminals so the "trolley" scenario does not compute. And again I'm comparing this to actual heroes like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. Actually Biden has offered a possible to deal Assange.

    Sure. It's not like he didn't have 4 years the first time. :rolleyes: But that said I'm not sure if this "Dread Pirate Roberts" guy deserves to be set free! The evidence is pretty clear of him being an accessory to kidnapping and possibly soliciting murder. The ain't the Proud Boys scheming to do a sit in at some random buildings at the capital.

    So no pardon for Julian Assange, Edward Snowden or Thomas Drake (no relation to me), but commute the sentence of someone dumb enough to have a chat log talking about how he didn't mind if a certain party got executed and applauding his associate being kidnapped? https://www.wired.com/2015/02/read-transcript-silk-roads-boss-ordering-5-assassinations/ Redandwhite 3/25/2013 10:00: I was asked to contact you. We are the people friendlychemist owes money to. He tells us that you owe him money and a long boring story about some of this and some of that. As far as we are concerned - we gave him the product. Where it went and how does not matter. We hold him and him only responsible for the missing product/money.We don't care if you stole it from him/borrowed it from him or anything. It was his responsibility to pay for it. He asked me to contact you anyways. What did you want to talk to us about? Dread Pirate Roberts 3/26/2013 18:27: Sorry for the delayed response and thank you for getting in touch. We've had some technical difficulties the past 24 hours I've had to deal with. Just to be clear, I do not owe him any money, but he has told me his situation and wants my help. I'm not entirely sure what the best action to take is, but I wanted to be in communication with you to see if we can come to a conclusion that works for everyone. friendlychemist aside, we should talk about how we can do business. Obviously you have access to illicit substances in quantity, and are having issues with bad distributors. If you don't already sell here on Silk Road, I'd like you to consider becoming a vendor. Many people here purchase in bulk as well as retail quantities. Being a vendor, you'll have the protection that dealing anonymously in bitcoin provides, and you'll have protection against people like friendlychemist ripping you off because all transactions are conducted through my escrow. I encourage you to read the wiki and forum ... and consider becoming a vendor here. So, if there is anything I can do as the admin here to help you get involved in Silk Road, or anything I can do to help with your situation with friendlychemist, please just let me know. -DPR

    Probably not. It's possible that now that the delirium over George Floyd has worn off and there's been 4 years of Biden, there are large numbers of black and brown people willing to listen to Trump. His record on black issues really isn't bad. Permanent funding for land grant HBCUs and the most significant criminal justice reform of a generation. And there may be trouble brewing for democrats over immigration.

    I think it was fear porn over everything. People in my circles got angry at me for thinking for myself. Even angrier than they did for my not supporting Obama. I started just ignoring posts by certain of my friends on Facebook who would say ridiculous things like "It's time for people to stop doing their own research." My longest adult friend stopped speaking to me simply for my pointing out to her the fact that the smallpox vaccine is materially different than the COVID mRNA vaccines because the smallpox vaccine gives sterilizing immunity making ring vaccination possible and the COVID vaccine does not. More recently we found out that they didn't even test it to see if it even stopped transmission.

    Well....black people opposed the Fauci vaccine mandates more than white people. I think that's in part because Trump pushed the vaccine back when Biden and Harris were skeptical of it. Remember the 2020 debates? Republicans go along with Republican authoritarianism (most of the GOP was lock step in support of the Patriot Act and their voters agreed) and Democrats go along with Democratic authoritarianism. What's interesting is when Biden/Harris flipped on the vaccines, black people were less still less likely to go along with that.

    You're welcome. There is a battle for the heart and soul of the black church and a lot of black Christians, including leaders, aren't really aware of what's going on. As I think you're aware, I am Seventh Day Adventist. Back when Dr. Ben Carson was running for president there was a Huffington Post article were a gay SDA was asked about his (Dr. Carson's) and the church's view on gay marriage. He (the gay man) responded that he didn't want gay issues to overshadow the fight for the ordination of women pastors. (The church hires women pastors but they aren't ordained but "credentialed" and don't ask me to explain why that is because I don't know). The SDA church still as an organization is united on marriage being between a man and a woman. But I was at a New Years Eve prayer meeting where I heard a pastor of a large black SDA church say that he was wanting his members to partner with him of fighting homelessness (good), hiring a youth pastor (good) and doing evangelism (good) and then he added "So when you give your money to help LGBTQ remember to give to the Lord too." And I was like "What the hell?" This was formerly a very conservative church. I know some of the people in the audience didn't agree with that but nobody stood up and said anything, and to be fair I didn't either. But I also have a brother in law (ex-wife's sister's husband) who has two non-denominational (I think) mega churches. Back in 2020 he wanted to talk politics with me and explain to me why I should support Joe Biden. (I think he thought I supported Trump because most people can't think outside the two parties). We argued back and forth until finally I said "You're church runs a daycare right?" He was like "Yes." I was like "Would you be okay with the government telling you that you had to hire gay teachers? Because under Biden that's coming." He just got VERY quiet. He hadn't even thought of that. (Actually recent rulings by SCOTUS state that teachers of schools run by churches, like pastors, are not covered by the Civil Rights Act based on the ecclesiastical exception. So that can't happen per se.) Something else that I almost put in the last post but I felt it was getting long. Some years ago TD Jakes was put on the spot by a viewer question when he was being interviewed by Marc Lamont Hill. The question was about the black church and the gay community. TD Jakes answer, which I felt was reasonable, is "All churches don't teach the same thing so go wherever you feel comfortable but don't try to make my church conform to your views." A lot of people interpreted TDJ as saying his own views on gays and gay marriage was "evolving" and he was attacked by Christian conservatives. However this is becoming an issue again because there's been video released of him leaving a "Diddy party" and Diddy supposedly goes both ways. (Denzel Washington was seen leaving a Diddy party early with a look of disgust on his face.)

    LOL. You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Anti Federalist again. Thanks for the compliment! I know PAF isn't a fan of Tim Scott. He also knows RFK JR has his issues. But this is what I think everyone should be able to agree on. The spectacle of what might be the 2024 presidential / vice presidential debates is really what's important IMO. I want RFK JR on the stage with Trump and Biden spitting facts at both of them on the full extent of vaccine injuries and, the fact that natural immunity was ignored and the fact that the lockdowns did more harm than good. I want Tim Scott faced off against Kamala Harris for her to explain why she filibustered the only police reform bill that had any chance of passage rather than offering amendments to improve it. I'd love to see Cornel West and whoever the libertarian presidential candidate ends up being (have they decided yet?) to question everybody else as to why supporting a genocidal maniac like Netanyahu who helped fund Hamas in the first place is in the interest of the American people. Take a little bit of everybody I mentioned, discard the bad parts, and you basically have Ron/Rand Paul. But neither of them are running this year. :(

    Short answer is that I don't think many black people in general ever supported sexualization of children, but it's taking a while for black Christians to wake up to what's going on because of their undying love for Obama and/or dislike of Trump and Republicans Here's the long answer: I'll try to find the statistic, but prior to Obama being president a solid majority of African Americans were against gay marriage, more so than whites, and that flipped after Obama changed his views on gay marriage. It's really a mixed bag. In 2007 Obama was criticized by gays for having gospel singer and minister Donnie McClurkin associated with his campaign. Donnie is known for his ministry to gay people who wish to leave that lifestyle. That's something Donnie himself had to struggle with because he was molested as a child. I can't find the video, but I remember seeing Donnie explain to gospel artist Yolanda Adams that he agreed with Obama changing gay marriage as a "civil rights issue" but he (Donnie) maintained his same position that it wasn't right in the eyes of God. And how did Obama award him for this? Well....Donnie was dis-invited from singing at the 50th anniversary of the MLK March On Washington. At that same event Baynard Rustin, an openly gay lieutenant of MLK who's largely credited with Dr. King adopting a 100% non violent stance in the Civil Rights Movement (before Rustin, Dr. King had armed deacons for security guards and one could argue that Rustin got king killed), was honored for his role in the Civil Rights Movement.

    Yeah....that doesn't make sense either. Why would Trump do that? There is far more risk than reward in doing that. In fact I can't think of any reward. He could have slipped in a "mass deportation" headline, gotten the same boost from anyone that might have a positive reaction to the thought of a new "Reich" without any of the negative baggage. If Trump was aware of "Reich" contents of the ad, that fits into the "self sabotage" theory that I have. Nobody, not dannno nor Swordsmyth, can come up with an explanation of why Trump did an interview with Bob Woodward prior to the 2020 election. Woodward took down Nixon. Why would Trump even talk to that man, let alone tell him that he (Trump) knew in February 2020 that COVID would be bad but he didn't want people to "panic." Now in February 2020, Dr. Fauci wrote in Nature that COVID wouldn't be any worse than the seasonal flu. The smart thing would be to not talk to Bob Woodward at all, but if you were going to talk to him, shift any blame for a "slow response" to Fauci's article. Sometimes Trump says and/or does things that are needlessly counter protective that make me ask "Does he REALLY want to be president?" But in this case, sabotage by some plant is as reasonable as self sabotage. But Trump has clearly done some self sabotage.

    I wrote this on the blockchain blogging platform https://hive.io. It was forked from Steemit after Steem got taken over by a Chinese investor. I got the information from Anti Federalist's latest Harvard poll.

(Yes I can get paid for that too). https://medium.com/@jmdrakelaw/the-current-most-favorable-u-s-political-figures-rfk-jr-elon-musk-and-tim-scott-3b4c5590cd71 I was going through the latest Harvard Harris poll, which currently shows Donald Trump up 6 points in the U.S. election, and I found something interesting. On page 15 there is a poll net favorability of political figures. I'm not sure why Elon Musk was included as a political figure as he isn't running for anything (excluding the poll he did on X regarding whether on not he should remain CEO...which he lost). But based on the poll he has a net favorability of 13%, and RKF Jr and Tim Scott have net favorbility ratings of 10%. Donald Trump currently has a net favorability rating of 4% and Joe Biden is at -10%.
