    I get it…Because TRUMP is not a conservative. That’s why…I just don’t trust him. He has all the qualities that makes a politician a politician. He know how to promote his brand name, he knows how to talk the talk on certain red bottom issues. He has played the game far too long.

    Be aware of buyers remorse.

    He is just framing the immigration issue is such a way to capture the anxiety of americans who feel that their country is been taken away from them.

    Really??? I am a conservative and I approved of that question! It was a fair question in that:

    1. The premise of the question was factual and was not based on rumors or speculations.
    2. Don’t you want to know how your candidate will response to such question in a Presidential debate against a democrat? Especially given that he did said those things.

    It was a great debate because we have great candidates but also because the questions were tough and fair. The good debate should equip you with the necessary knowledge about the candidates positions, intellectual capacity and demeanor in answering questions. The presenters did a great job in enabling those key points.

    It is beyond me why Donald whine so much about the question, but far more surprising is how many people are buying his talking points.

    I just don’t see. I thought they were fair. :-)

    Is everyone else taking crazy pills. The questions were right on target.

    I wanted to know:

    1. If he would run for as independent if he looses the nomination. Fair and valid question.
    2. Why he changed his position in some critical issues. Don’t you want to hear an explanation why he was pro-choice, pro-single payer, pro-imminent domain before he was against it? Romney got clubber for that and now we have a double standard.
    3. The panelist also asked tough and insivive questions to the rest of the field, including to Carson, Rubio, and Cruz. I don’t here them whinning about it!

    Do you want a candidate that:

    Is thin skin and start whining because he didn’t get ask what was his secret for his HUGE success?

    Or do you want a candidate that is even contemplating running a third party and thereby insuring a third Obama term. People wake up!

    By the way a third party is a complete legitimate question…in my opinion only if you can demonstrate with facts that that candidate can win the election…for now a third party has to be built up from the ground up (local to national). There is to much at stake to make such a gamble in 2016.

    Yeah it does a great job in demonstrating how closed/small minded and un-intellectual Hitchen really is…What ever happen to the likes of Bernard Shaw…the state of pop new atheist is truly sad and embarrassing.

    @walkingtruth

    In regards to your comment about calling no man father:

    Do you call your minister Pastor or Doctor (from the latin word docere which means to teach, teacher)? If you adhere to the literal interpretation of the scriptural passage that you quoted you should not use the temrs pastors or doctor because those are titles. Jesus was following the Rabbinic tradition of hyperbole as he did in Matthew 5:29:

    “If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell”.

    Moreover if we are prohibited from using such terminology then why Paul used them?
    “I do not write this to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children. For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel”.

    1 Cor. 4:14–15

    Hope this helps,

    Cheers,

    When I pray to the Saints I am not praying to dead people, as Jesus said:

    I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

    Matthew 22:23

    St. Paul is very clear that death cannot separates us from Christ:

    Nothing can separate us from the body of Christ, not even death:

    “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

    Romans 8:38-39

    Death cannot separate us from Christ…quite the contrary we will be far closer to Christ in heaven than we are here. We will be perfected in the presence of God’s love in perfect charity. How much more do you think that we will be compel to pray to God for the interception of those who are here still carrying our crosses.

    The Saints in heaven are more alive that we can ever imagine because they are so much closer to God! That is the beauty of the fullness of faith as shared by Catholics, Orthodox, Coptic Christians (who have churches that trace back from the time of the apostles) and the testimony of the very early Christians.

    It is sad that many Christians denominations have forgotten or actively ignored the great communion of Saint that are in heaven praying for us.

    Cheers,

    During the time of King David, the king would appoint a trusted person to serve in the office of Prime Minister. This person was in charge of daily operations of the kingdom and as a sign of this authority he carries the keys of the kingdom around his neck. The people who Jesus was talking to were Jews and they knew their scriptures very and immediately recognized that Christ was giving Peter authority over his kingdom on Earth…

    So in Matthew 16 we see the template of the Catholic Church, we see how Christ founded only one Church and establish Peter as its head, as its first Pope! And how he gave authority to that Church.

    So yes when the Pope speaks of matters of Faith and Morals he speaks with the authority that Christ invested in him guided and protected from error by the Holy Spirit. So he alone can say: Thus says the Lord.

    I hope this clarify some question you may had.

    Cheers!

    Isaiah 22:19-24

    20On that day I will summon my servant Eliakim, son of Hilkiah;

    21I will clothe him with your robe, gird him with your sash, confer on him your authority. He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.

    22I will place the key* of the House of David on his shoulder; what he opens, no one will shut, what he shuts, no one will open.

    23I will fix him as a peg in a firm place, a seat of honor for his ancestral house;

    24On him shall hang all the glory of his ancestral house: descendants and offspring, all the little dishes, from bowls to jugs.

    The Authority of the Church:

    “I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
    Again we noticed how the Old Testament reveals the New Testament in:

    Matthew 16:13-19

    13When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” 17Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. 18 And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

    Foundation of one church:

    Notice what Jesus says: “upon this rock I will build my church” and how he did not say my churches…but my church. Only one Church not many.

    The Role of Peter:

    Moreover pay attention to the central role of Peter in this passage: “And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.”
