Trump and the End Times
(08-19-2020, 12:56 AM)Thumpalumpacus Wrote: Trump isn't the Antichrist. He's just anti-American.

Will Putin give Trump political asylum in Russia when he's kicked out in November?
Could Trump work from there to further destroy America using his insider knowledge?
Does that explain why Trump's so friendly with Putin?
Trump could live safely in fabulous luxury for the rest of his life, and be untouchable by the US.

Trump might perhaps want to flee there. I don't think he'd be more damaging from there; I consider the real danger him developing his social-media outlets in order to sow his shit. If I were Putin, I'd tell him to stay in America and continue what you're doing. Doing that from a base in Russia is too obvious. Keep it in America and maintain plausible deniability.

Going to Russia, for Trump, also means acknowledging that the Mueller report was right. Trump cares too much about public opinion to do that, I think.

The reason why Trump's so friendly with Putin is that Putin has him by the balls, I suspect. Washing Russian money comes with drawbacks.
Freedom isn't free.

You're giving Trump far too much credit. He has neither the wits, the class, nor the talent to be the anti-Christ. He'd end up botching Armageddon.

And yes, some people believe some damned weird shit. Don't generalize too far from the wack-a-doodles. They aren't representative of all Christians.

I have long lost track of how many Christian sects there are. Some of them nuttier than others.

Not if the kids expect to have anything left of Trump Inc, which hopefully will be charged under the RICO Act. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racketeer_...ations_Act
I suppose they could each get a dacha, but never coming back to the US would be a steep price.

"In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of "racketeering activity."
When the U.S. Attorney decides to indict someone under RICO, they have the option of seeking a pre-trial restraining order or injunction to temporarily seize a defendant's assets and prevent the transfer of potentially forfeitable property, as well as require the defendant to put up a performance bond. This provision was placed in the law because the owners of Mafia-related shell corporations often absconded with the assets. An injunction or performance bond ensures that there is something to seize in the event of a guilty verdict."

Well, the person may be bad (anti christ), but he is there building that temple, or making it possible, because he is paving the way for god himself. When that happens, the end is nigh.

I don't get how Christianity ever caught on in the first place. The Jewish view on this is that when the messiah comes, there will be peace on earth. No end times, no rapture, no beast, no tribulations. Just plain ol' peace and happiness. 

I don't get those people.

Me bold.

Don't mistake me for those nice folks from Give-A-Shit county.

There are some people who simply don't know anything about the world.  Trump is one.

He thought that Andrew Jackson could have stopped the US Civil War.

Trump seems to think Frederick Douglass is still alive.

He said Canada burned down the White House.

He seemed unaware the Republican party used to be known as the party of Lincoln.
“Great president. Most people don’t even know he was a Republican. Does anyone know? Lot of people don’t know that,”.

Need I say more?
Theists disbelieve in all deities but one.  I just disbelieve in one less.
