Verses from the Bible that Trump avoids like the plague.āšš°
5. Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. 6. For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience, 7. and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them. 8. But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. 9. Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, 10. and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him-- 11. a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all. --- https://tinyurl.com/has82mk (NASB)
"Minority communities fighting back against disinformation ahead of election"
The above article did mention, "more than a vote" campaign
wrote: Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has said he'll work closely with the More Than a Vote initiative during the final weeks of the 2020 U.S. presidential election campaign to combat misinformation and voter suppression tactics targeted toward young Black voters.
James, who recently captured his fourth championship by helping the Lakers defeat the Miami Heat in the 2020 NBA Finals, told Astead W. Herndon of the New York Times he's "passionate" about making sure younger members of the Black community cast their ballots.
"It's simple. We believe that Black people, our community, we've been pushed away from our civic duty," James said in an interview released Wednesday. "We've been fed misinformation for many years."

Daniel Burke wrote: During his phone call with White, the GOP nominee said he regretted his remarks and was grateful for the evangelicals still supporting him. Later that evening, he publicly apologizedĀ in a videoĀ that was remarkably free from the usual rituals enacted by disgraced politicians.
Trump didn't stand beside his wife, Melania. He didn't ask for forgiveness.ā He didn't lament that he had fallen under sin's sway but that by God's grace and with his family's support he hoped to earn a second chance. In fact, Trump didn't mention faith, family or reconciliation at all.
excerpt from, "The guilt-free gospel of Donald Trump"
āThere's this old saying,"Make a fool me once, shame on you! Make a fool me twice, shame on me ā"
I think evangelicals had enough warning before the first election, but anyway if they weren't paying attention, they should know by now, that Trump is a very flawed human being, too flawed to be the President.
I would be very happy if the Republican Party next time around, gets a sensible person such as Senator Ben Sasse, to run for President, or for that matter there's quite a few other people out there as well.

Neil, science is the process of correcting mistakes, politics almost never!
16. By their fruits you will know them. Do you gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles? 17. Even so, every good tree produces good fruit, but the corrupt tree produces evil fruit. 18. A good tree canāt produce evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree produce good fruit. 19. Every tree that doesnāt grow good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

"Under the county health officerās order, places of worship must report to the county Public Health Department when at least three coronavirus cases are identified among staff or worshipers within a span of 14 days so the agency can determine whether there is an outbreak."
Andrea Kane and Maggie Fox wrote: .... "I don't like to be authoritarian from the federal government, but at the local level, if governors and others essentially mandate the use of masks when you have an outbreak, I think that would be very important," Fauci told Alabama Sen.

"Well, if people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating it," Fauci told CNN's Erin Burnett Friday....

David Hambling wrote: American officials in Cuba and China have experienced āHavana Syndromeā : hearing strange sounds, then suffering dizziness, headaches and memory loss. A new report in New York Times suggests that the cause of the syndrome is being covered up by the State Department. A deep dive into the murky history of microwave weapons may give clues about exactly what is being covered up.
The incidents, first reported in Cuba in 2016, have been controversial from the start. Victims typically hear a burst of high-pitched, grating noise with no obvious source before suffering other symptoms. Other people in the same building do not experience either the sound or the other effects....

Dick, you may very well have a point, but the Russians have found a way of getting up close and personal with a microwave weapon.
John, considering we don't know the sanity of some Republican leaders, it's hard to say about the sanity of these people who support an obvious rejection of even natural law. However one thing is for certain, and has been shown not to work:
John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world. ---ESV

Anne Applebaum wrote: .... Poland is an ethnically homogeneous country, monolingual and overwhelmingly Catholic. Nevertheless, Law and Justice propagandists have, over the past decade, successfully manufactured, cultivated, and promoted a tribal division that is every bit as powerful as those that are based on skin color or language.... .... Unhindered by the threat of a presidential veto, the government will also seek to finish the job of packing and politicizing the Polish courts. Independent judges in Poland are harassed just like businessmen: interrogated, threatened, and, in one famous incident, bullied online by professional trolls, working on behalf of the Justice Ministry. Already, Poland has rival courts that donāt recognize one another, a fact that has created conflict with the rest of the European Union, which cannot function without the rule of law in its member states....
