    What is he doing for Christians exactly? I find it surprising that someone who's so bad at Christianity would be such a beacon of hope for Christians.
    Neil Gorsuch appointed by Trump as a Supreme court justice that upholds religious rights. During the 2016 campaign, Trump pledged to defend religious liberty, stand up for unborn life and appoint conservative jurists to the Supreme Court and federal appeals courts. And he has done exactly what he promised. The pro-abortion lobby NARAL complains that Trump has been “relentless” on these fronts, declaring his administration “the worst . . . that we’ve ever seen.” That is more important to most Christian conservatives than what the president may have done with a porn actress more than 10 years ago.
    The impact would have been immediate, as the court prepares to decide two cases crucial to religious liberty. In Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, the court will soon determine whether the government can compel a U.S. citizen to violate his conscience and participate in speech that violates his sincerely held religious beliefs. In National Institute of Family Life Advocates v. Becerra, the court will decide whether the state of California can compel pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to advertise access to abortion to their clients, in violation of their conscience. Those cases are being heard not by five liberals, but five conservatives, including Justice Neil M.Gorsuch — because Trump kept his promise to “appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will strictly interpret the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.”https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...=.b321c76aacd5 Not a perfect man, but a man that keeps his promises

    You forget Roseannes a comedian, she says a lot of crazy stuff. Most people have lost their sense of humor these days

    And I'm pretty sure the vast majority of the black community would disagree with you that he's not a racist. Take the NFL for example. Another made up thing he did to distract from all his bs. 70% of the NFL is black. He has also specifically targeted Muslims and Hispanics.

    I think the only group at this point his has not targted for him racism is white dudes.
    ACTIONS make one a racist, not words. Some people of color use nasty race baiting words about each other all the time because it's culturally acceptable for them to do so.

    Comedians make fun of others for a living. If they are racists, you have to show discrimination to prove racism. Examples:

    Not hiring the targeted race.

    Not promoting the targeted race.

    Avoiding contact with the targeted race.

    If you are talking about writing entertainments, the subject matter of the writing should show demeaning examples of the targeted race and avoid positive examples of the targeted race.

    Those who use made-up-racism as a political weapon are self righteous weaponizers of words. And in many cases, it is their own desires for control and influence to do so.

    Mmmm, I wasn't talking about Barr - I was talking about Trump

    And yes, both are racist.

    Or am I getting Roseanne Barr's racist tweets mixed-up?
    Or this:



    I'm not happy that Roseanne's show was taken off the air, but it was no mob, it was ABC execs and I suspect they may have had other problems with her, or they just pulled the plug so quickly because like many in this country, they're sick of the rude behavior Americans are adopting since Trump has Benn president. Regular people who are dumb enough to say offensive things using their real names on the internet lose their jobs all the time. Regular people who don't use their real names get doxxed and exposed, too.

    Maybe we should all consider the repercussions from our words before we decide to hit the "send" button. If you wouldn't say something in front of your boss, or to the face of the person it's directed at, you may want to refrain from posting it on the internet.

    It's worth noting that Channing Dungey, the primary executive responsible for cancelling Roseanne's show was also the primary individual responsible for putting her show on the air in the first place.

    That's the nationalists racists whole spiel... trying to redefine racism, so they can spill their vile and hate without consequence.

    Do NOT fall for it.. stick with what racism actually is.

    It's a symbol, a word that starts with r and ends with m and has letters in between.

    Like all symbols, unless you can reduce it to math, it is subject to interpretation.

    So, what is your definition?
