It's a sad saga all around. Much of the money in Nigeria could be used to make refining oil safer and less toxic to the environment. Refining areas are polluted by toxic gas flares that cause sickness and cancer for locals.
Johnson is similar to many actors in Hollywood who couldn’t support Trump even if they wanted to. True to form, he aligns himself with liberal thinking on issues like gun control and violence in public schools, as well as the national anthem protest.
Drake may be successful, but that does not necessarily mean that his plan reflects God’s plan - at least the God of the Bible. That’s because meeting the real needs of people is not something that rich people celebrate in a video.
Why not seek to understand instead of attacking Christians who want to practice their religion in their life and work, in this case, baking wedding cakes? Attacking Christians for their devotion to their God is precisely what has happened in a number of liberal states that want Christians to conform to the prevailing culture.
In states like Colorado and other liberal states, the rights of Christians, instead of being tolerated and respected, are trampled on. Instead of finding another bake shop that will accommodate them, activists try to set an example and harass the owners, forcing them to close their business.
It's not that Jefferson had a copy of the Qur'an to contribute to a future government. It's that Islamic leaders, its representatives were unashamed of such behavior and even proud of their ability to create such suffering, as though it were their God-given right to do so.
Gerson presents a relatively well-researched article with a dizzying amount of history about Christianity and politics in the U.S. Most of it, however, is irrelevant to why Trump was supported by and overwhelmingly voted for by a majority of evangelicals.
In other words, a conservative Christian does not rank as highly as the sister of a murderer. Perhaps the New York Times and Washington Post should find a relative of Hitler and anoint her as the next leader of the free world. But this is how liberals think. Anything must be better than a Christian in politics.
