I'm actually a Vietnam veteran served in the US Army, which is more than Trump or Clinton can say.
So, Timothy oh, I would suggest you address your questions to mr. Trump.
I see the "bishop" could be as easily slammed for the following "huh"
Webster's 1913 Dictionary wrote: Bigâłotâry (ďż˝) , n. [Cf. F. bigoterie .] 1. The state of mind of a bigot; obstinate and unreasoning attachment of one's own belief and opinions, with narrow-minded intolerance of beliefs opposed to them. 2. The practice or tenets of a bigot
12. Then the disciples came and said to Him, âDo You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?â 13. But He answered and said, âEvery plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. 14. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.â ---

The former vice-president drew on his own experiences with loss and grief to make sharp, specific points about Trump's handling of coronavirus.
"He keeps waiting for a miracle. I have news for him. No miracle is coming. We lead the world in confirmed cases. We lead the world in death. Our economy is in tatters," Biden said.
"And after all of this time, the President still does not have a plan. I do."

I of course would have no problem taking a vaccine for covid-19 â đ
Chris GP, by the people who make up Biologos you can see they're a liberal group This does not stop the idea what they say about vaccinations is wrong. If the wacky anti-vaxxers had their way we wouldn't have vaccines for polio, measles, or smallpox
Jonathan Merritt wrote: .... Though most Southern Baptists remain politically conservative, it seems that some are now less willing to have their denomination serve as a handmaiden to the GOP, especially in the current political moment. They appear to recognize that tethering themselves to Donald Trumpâa thrice-married man who has bragged about committing adultery, lies with impunity, allegedly paid hush money to a porn star with whom he had an affair, and says he has never asked God for forgivenessâplaces the moral credibility of the Southern Baptist Convention at risk....

...I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the public service they have done here. Yes, they are lying about having done itâpretending they found things other than what they found and did not find the things they actually found. And yes, they are almost religiously evading the moral, legal, and democratic consequences of what they found.
But unlike their counterparts in the House of Representatives, they allowed this investigation to take place. They ran a bipartisan, serious investigation. They worked with their Democratic colleagues to insulate it from an environment rife with pressures. And they produced a report that is a worthy contribution to our understanding of what happened four years ago....

Luke Harding wrote: The Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny is merely the latest Kremlin critic suspected to have been poisoned in murky circumstances. Over the past century a series of political opponents have fallen mysteriously ill. Many have died. All have seemingly been victims of Moscowâs secret poisons laboratory, set up by Vladimir Lenin in 1921.
Its function was to deal efficiently and mercilessly with enemies of the state. Some were domestic, others troublesome exiles.... .... Evidence of Putinâs personal involvement in poisonings remains circumstantial. We do not know how much he knows or the chain of command. But the large number of victims, at home and abroad, suggests the Kremlin views such episodes as an unpleasant but necessary evil. They send a message to society. It says that dissent has its limits, and that unbridled opposition to the state may carry a terrible price.

A well-done article of a list of poisoned Russians who we should be reminded about.

Mike McShane wrote: My recent article on Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Bartholetâs controversial views on homeschooling clearly struck a nerve. To keep the good times rolling, I want to dig in on a topic that has come up frequently in discussions of homeschooling in America, the role of the Home School Legal Defense Association.
Homeschooling opponents (and even some supporters) have described the HSLDA as a shadowy cabal advancing homeschooling with nefarious motives and underhanded tactics. Having met folks that work for HSLDA, that hasnât been my experience. That said, I wanted to ask someone from HSLDA questions that have arisen about their funding and activities.
Mike Donnelly, Senior Counsel and Director of Global Outreach graciously responded to a set of questions that I emailed him....

Snippet from a rather detailed article. One can only pray this matter is not settled by congregants coming down with covid-19 â đ
I see you can still view this program, which is quite good. Yes, while it was done by Nebraska Educational Television, they were certainly smart enough to put homeschooling into a favorable light--not that public education was ever really denigrated. Even if it was done back in 2012 it's probably even more pertinent now during this period of covid-19.
