What has America become? Hostile to citizens of faith? Contemptuous to the word of God? Insulting, rude to our spiritual needs? This is not the America I grew up in.
NeverTrump wants to deny you YOUR voice, YOUR presidential choice.

The military isn't hostile to islam, so their faith must be better than that of Christians. :banghead:

The pendulum will swing the other way soon enough. Then you'll have to worry about a theocracy instead.

Disbelieve me? Look to Russia.

True, but our Constitution prevents it to happen..

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

You mean that outmoded piece of parchment that has failed to evolve?

The rule of the Constitution has been replaced by the rule of the President.

Joseph Story, the original expert on the Constitution, said the Constitution was NOT intended to be a living document because it would make it too easy to ignore and change it.  Liberals/socialist/communists argue for the "living document" interpretation because it is too hard and time consuming to change it the way built into the document. He was correct.

Where's the other side of the story?

We get all incensed about one-sided reporting, then lap it up when it favors our side.

We already have that - a cult of personality that's elevated Obama to the godhead; Obama's "sweeping" (as the Old Gray Whore has finally admitted) exercise of the executive order - "law" stripped of the Constitutional legislative process - is precisely the sort of dispensation the royals of old used to govern (or, more often, to mis-govern) their fiefdoms.

Why don't you look into that and get back to us?  It happened right in YOUR backyard, after all.

I  believe normal journalism would cite the sources at the VA hospital that were involved, even if they wouldn't talk.

Absence of even that level of content and detail makes me suspicious.

The source, WND, further leads me to be skeptical.
