    Right, to name a few points:
    Let’s keep the baby killing going full swing!!!!
    Let’s go socialist so that in just a few years (months?) we can be just like Venezuela!!!!
    Let’s put the dems in charge so we can lose our rights of free speech and self defense!!!!
    Let’s guarantee than ANY pervert has the option of using any bathroom of his/her/its choosing depending on the mental state at any given time!!!!
    And many others————!!!!

    This advice from the article should be given to the dems, as they violate with at least 20-30% of all speech they use.
    “There is no place in society — anywhere, any place and at any time — where that type of language should be used or handled. Your comments were not presidential,” he wrote.

    So, yes Ken, these are the folks Christians should vote for. NOT!!

    Please, Ken stick with bluegrass and forget politics as your TDS bleeds through any attempt at logic with any post concerning Trump!

    Please tell us who the true Christian would vote for. Don’t leave us in the dark.

    There is no one candidate that a Christian should vote. It’s all about personal judgment and preference.

    So, stop dodging and provide a list of all the truly Christian candidates that would make good political leaders, assuming you are not merely promoting myth.

    That is up to each person’s personal judgment and preference. I can tell you I would never, ever vote for Donald Trump in 2020. I would skip that office on the ballot, if I felt I should, rather than vote for him.

    Well, that's OK. Posting as valid that disgustingly vulgar misrepresentation of the president's speech is disqualifying anyway, demonstrating enough lack of discernment to disregard any preference, personal or otherwise, especially when it comes to Trump. Trump 2020.

    Then stop with your judge-mental judgements. It’s tiresome.

    Goodnight, you must have virgin ears. I heard this kind of language every day when I was working. I guess my threshold for vulgar is higher than yours.

    I heard lots of bad language working in an oil field for three summers in the 1970s. I thank God that He did not allow me to become desensitized to it.

    So? Does three months make you feel better about Trump doing this?

    It's not a matter of being "desensitized". It's a matter of knowing an unsaved person will act and speak like unsaved persons.

    His words are despicable. And I am glad someone reached out to him and talked to him about it. However, I think there are some who want this event to be bigger than what it deserves because of hatred of him. Trump has flaws to be sure. I have to wonder what exactly it is that drives this hatred. Usually it is driven by one or more of his policies. This hatred is by far the worst I have ever seen and by far the least deserved. It is delusional, irrational, and for Christians it is the most unChristian thing I have seen.

    Trump obviously should not use such language, but he may have been under the mistaken impression that the previous president had somehow legitimized its use.

    No, Mr. President, the rule seems to be that only a president's pastor can use it, but he must really mean it, and must use it only about America because he hates America. And if used repeatedly, it helps to be a minority.

    Ken wants us to vote for our children to be forced into transgender celebration, accept abortion up until birth, forcing hospitals to perform abortions, and giving up our gun rights, all because Trump used some bad words.

    "That is up to each person’s personal judgment and preference." Good to remember that as you post your declarations.

    Would you also like to see African-Americans returned to their pre-Trump unemployment numbers?
