So you're saying Ted Cruz is Herod, and Her Majesty is Pilate? I think you're crediting Cruz (and the rest of the GOP hopefuls) way, way, way too much. JEB is the closest to Hillary. And maybe he _is_ as diabolical. I want to doubt that, but set personal bias aside: he could be as ruthless under pressure, sure.
Note that JEB made a show of publishing emails ahead of Her Majesty's announcement about The Royal Server. There is quite a bit of behind-the-scenes crap going on. And, if there is ever to be anything different (and I think I'm less pessimistic than you on the point) minimizing the behind-the-scenes crap is essential.

I love you, man, but, as a sola scritptura fundamentalist, that tradition adds nothing to my infinite admiration for Christ, and knowledge of my utter, sinful failure.
Across the varied tapestry of Christianity, there's an awful lot that has me shrugging.
In defense of Roman Catholicism/Eastern Orthodoxy, I'll take the hit that the Evangelical "tradition" is drab and has just as many challenges as the "high" churches, albeit different ones.
Not out to offend you. In any case, we've nothing mutual to prove. Our only judge is the Savior.

You sure know how to roll a nightmare scenario. As for the Second Coming, I figure He's en route; just that His watch runs at an extemporal rate. And Mary certainly holds a blessed place in human history, but the Muslim argument about Christians over-achieving has a certain cogency with respect to her.

A bigot is someone who treats someone else with disrespect.

I like that definition, except that anymore, "bigot" is tossed at anyone who commits ThoughtCrime.
While there are quite a few ideas that I just can't fathom, I only get anywhere near nasty (at least, from my perspective) when somebody is attacking my integrity.
