Hats off to Donald J. Trump. May GOD guide his path.
And this is why the left hate him with a passion. Finally, a President with common sense.

The bigger problem from the region, when bringing in Christians, they are not on the King James version, not the Jerusalem Bible version, not the Geneva Bible, The Bishops Bible, or the Matthew Bible.... They are OLD Testament to the core. Which is the equivalence to the Quran.

I have to disagree, because the Old Testament is originally from the Jewish faith, before Jesus, therefore by definition, a Christian cannot just adhere to the Old Testament. The old Testament, is not equivalent to the Quran. To say so, is like saying Jews are equivalent to Muslims in their beliefs and BTW, the Old Testament is the first half of the Bible.

Read the Old Testament.... All forms of Christianity, are a spin off the Hebrew Faith, beginning centuries after Christs death. Were Peter, Paul and Matthew, alive before, during or after Christ?

People seriously against it, how exactly have the ones here effected you so negatively to cheer this?

San Bernardino, Boston, Orlando just for starters.

As an agnostic I backed off supporting Hillary when she wouldn't back down off importing hundreds of thousands of intolerant homophobes who enjoy living like it's still 800 AD.

This is discrimination, pure and simple.

What part of a temporary ban until we have a more adequate vetting process to separate the good from the bad don't you liberals get?

You don't get to now be a "refugee" and victimize our country where freedom was fought for and died for. Stay in your own country, fight for your own freedom, and establish a secular government that recognizes individual rights and individual freedom. We provided you with the model for a rational, correct and free society. If you choose to live in the 10th century, then you are responsible when your leaders act exactly as you would expect - irrational mystical tyrants.


The chickens came home to roost, as they simply had to, and now you want to roost in America? And at taxpayer expense? No. Stay in your country and change it to something correct - something that looks like our country. We have provided you with the template. It is up to you to use it.

I thought that's pretty much what I said, but nevermind.

Winning??? You do know that this isn't a reality show, right? It's not a lefty/righty contest. It's the deterioration of what America was built on. Our founders, the British, fled England because of religious persecution. I'll bet they're proud. Hardly.
