In some ways, Christians have become "the new Jews", i.e., a section of people one can bash with near-impunity. In some ways, they do indeed ask for it, but in most cases, they do not. I myself was a Christian for the first 28 years of my life. I was raised and educated by Christians, nourished and sheltered and *believed in* by Christians.

These people are nucking futs that they want to see even their own children and even grand children die for their stupid freaking Bronze Age religious beliefs.

I have lived in Louisiana my whole life, and I've never eaten a crepe. I've had beignets, though. Gooood stuff!
Jebus. There better have been collusion at this point. Honestly, he needs to be getting something for how much he bends American policy to Russian interests.
Is there a need to believe anything needs one?
You're also describing our current prez, except for the time a decade ago. :P
You realize government mandated discrimination right?
