    "International red cross torture facilities" returns no relevant results on Google. So are you just making it up?

    He admitted to authorising torture - is that what you mean?

    What countries?

    Isn't that "self love" of Christian beliefs?

    What does this have to do with Pakistan being strategically beneficial to the US?

    You're giving Trump supporters who think that Trump can do no wrong FAR too much credit! If a poll was conducted asking Americans if they think that lying is morally okay, do you really expect that the majority would say YES?

    I can't quite believe that you don't understand that I'm talking about America as a whole, which you yourself appear to be talking about.

    Yes, and Trump supporters are around 30% of the adult voting population that is enough to form a significant impact on the normal mores of the population. We look to our leaders to set examples

    What examples does Trump set? Fidelity? Truthfulness? Consistency? Empathy? Consideration for others?

    So again - you're giving Trump supporters who think that Trump can do no wrong FAR too much credit! If a poll was conducted asking AMERICANS (as a whole) if they think that lying is morally okay, do you really expect that the majority would say YES?

    You need to ask them if it's okay for Trump to lie.
    Why don't you try it?
    You could do a poll here.

    There are 'elitists' who call themselves Christians, so of course that's self love. There are also fundamentalists who only see Christianity through the prism of their own upbringing and traditions. They are considered spiritually immature.

    The purpose of Christianity though is to achieve spiritual perfection so one can unite with God, and that requires stepping out of oneself. It's a growth process.

    Trump is a reflection of our country, so to condemn him is to condemn the US - which doesn't say much for us or him. He was voted in because people had no choice. Do you think anyone else would have been able to fight the Obama/Clinton/Soros machine?

    So then that is to do with Pakistan NOT being strategically beneficial to the US. You were supposed to be defending your claim that Pakistan IS strategically beneficial.

    Why the hell would the majority of Americans think that it's okay for Trump to lie? How many of your friends and family would say that it's okay?

    If you know the story between Muhammad and Aisha then you will understand the Islamic logic behind this atrocity, but the other thing is why is it that no charge of kidnapping did push through.

    You mean, why the kidnapping was permitted?

    It's not the majority of Americans. It's Trump supporters.
    None (that I know of) in my family think it's okay for him to lie, but I do have a few friends that think it's "not to bad."
