Try this one, MS, It's right out of the oven. Trump will do much more damage than Biden will, Biden is the one who is running for President not Harris.
Jonathan Easley and Amie Parnes wrote: .... Biden spoke to Blake's family and said the video of him being shot in the back in front of his children made him "sick."
But Biden also denounced the violent aspects of the protests, quoting Blake's mother, who said the mayhem "doesn't reflect my son or my family."
"Burning down communities is not protest, it's needless violence," Biden said. "Violence that endangers lives. Violence that guts businesses and shutters businesses that serve the community. That's wrong."...

I'm not worried about my status at the moment and I have to order my priorities, it's my duty as an Elector to vote out Mr. Trump and replaced him by someone better such as Mr. Biden
1 Corinthians 6 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

Mr. Trump has supported all of the above behaviors, and I certainly haven't‚ĚóūüĎé

"In a strong rebuke to the current administration, these former members of Congress cited Trump‚Äôs corruption, destruction of democracy, blatant disregard for moral decency, and urgent need to get the country back on course as a reason why they support Biden,

MS, since they call themselves Christians they leave themselves open for judgement
1 Corinthians 5:11-12 But as it is, I wrote to you not to associate with anyone who is called a brother who is a sexual sinner, or covetous, or an idolater, or a slanderer, or a drunkard, or an extortionist. Don‚Äôt even eat with such a person. For what do I have to do with also judging those who are outside? Don‚Äôt you judge those who are within?
David Brooks wrote: .... And I do think ‚ÄĒ the Democrats, I think, have come to understand, they somehow got on the wrong side of order. And they got somehow attached, even though Biden is not actually attached to it, to the idea of defunding the police. ..... And somehow they have to address that. Now, a lot of law and order talk is code word for racism. There's no question about that. But I think a lot of it is not.
And I think Democrats would be making a mistake if they just said, oh, you're all just a bunch of cryptoracists. I think people have legitimate concerns about expressing their opinion safely, about living safely.
And so I think Biden really would do well by himself to somehow address this issue and say, no, we're for policing, we want to reform policing, but we will keep you safe.
This is just an elemental issue of politics stretching back 3,000 or 4,000 years....

Carone, 33, attended Liberty for both his undergraduate studies and seminary and also held student employee roles during his time there.

He also called for an independent investigation. ‚ÄúThe reason it needs to be independent is because people at Liberty are scared to talk,‚ÄĚ he said.

Timothy, spewing nonsense again. No, I think good churches who are faithful to the Word and stick preaching to the Word, well at least need money to keep the essential staff employed. otherwise, known as the preacher and some office staff I would assume.
anyway, of course I would like to see churches that are Trumpian to disappear ‚Ěó Such as for the following reason:
..."Of all the congressional Republicans‚Äô many apostasies from professed principles, none is as momentous ‚ÄĒ because none has such comprehensive implications ‚ÄĒ as abandonment of free trade. This encourages promiscuous government nullifications of market allocations of wealth and opportunity, and the displacement of consumer and producer preferences by government ‚ÄĒ meaning political ‚ÄĒ dictates, an odd achievement for a party rhetorically horrified by socialism." ---George F.

Wendell Griffen wrote: We did not suspend in-person worship because Trump or any other governmental official said we should. We suspended our in-person gatherings and continue to worship and serve God and our neighbors from remote locations because we love God and our neighbors more than we love money. We love God and our neighbors more than we love religious routines. We love God and our neighbors more than we love the building space where we sang, prayed, preached, studied and encouraged and mentored each other before the coronavirus pandemic happened.
No governmental official determines whether, when, where or how we express our faith. New Millennium Church is governed and guided by our sense of Divine love, truth, justice, peace and hope. [presidents, governors, or mayors] are not the beings from whom we claim the right to moral, spiritual, religious and social freedom. As a black person reared in the Baptist tradition, I come from people who had to ‚Äústeal away‚ÄĚ to worship God. Slaveowners could not prevent my ancestors from worshiping God and caring for others...

I doubt if there would be any that I would agree with them on their theology, but then they do have the right to have it---at least so far in this country. I'm not sure if it's a Jerry Falwell Jr type of Christian thinks that they have any rights?
I do agree that it's time for moral leadership, something that we won't get from the present administration‚ĚóūüĎé
Unfortunately, along with White evangelists I have suspicions that they have a Dominionist point of view.

Sophie Meixner wrote: .... Why are some coronavirus vaccines using foetal cells and some aren't?
Scientists have many different methodologies for developing vaccines and there are a variety of reasons why foetal cells aren't always used.
"Some of them don't use it because of ethical issues," Dr Lott said.
"Some of them don't use it because they're not using an adenovirus [vector], so they don't really need the HEK 293.
"And there are other [development] strategies.
"There's an mRNA strategy that's very popular.
"So some of them don't require it."
The development of a coronavirus vaccine was time critical because of the virus' devastating public health and economic impacts, Dr Lott said.
Therefore, it was important for scientists to diversify their methodologies in order to develop a vaccine as quickly as possible....
excerpt from, "Foetal cells are used to make the Oxford coronavirus vaccine. But they came from a foetus in 1973"
This article gave the most detailed reasons why or why not to use a vaccine if foetal cells were used to develop it. I would say it gives a well detailed description of where the Catholic Church stands. It's worth your time reading it. Written by an Australian.
