Thread Name: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
Subject: RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects
I was raised by a scientist father who thought it important that I have a (mild) religious education.
Kind of like a vaccine. I grew to appreciate it when I was at school and the Campus Crusade for Christ came by. Having a background in the language and stories of religion has not only been useful but inspirational. But my version keeps me interested and with no feeling that I have all the answers. Indeed, my personal religion is to keep questioning, including questioning myself.
And so whether or not one believes in God, I think one of the great lessons of God is that whatever, whoever God is, it's NOT YOU.
This may be the flaw in Trump's personal makeup. And one of the things that makes him unsuitable to be a Commander in Chief. We all have delusions, if only the delusion that we have no delusions, but that one fatal flaw, to confuse oneself with divinity, does not end well. It's one of the reasons that Trump lets down EVERYONE who believes in him. Because the one being he can't conceive of letting down is himself.
