Yeah, I used to think that too. Then someone pointed out that Christians have their own book, called imaginatively, the "New Testament". Most of that kind of stuff is not in there, and Christians are expected to live by the new moral code, not the old. It doesn't always work that way in practice, but that's the basic theory, anyways.

Yes, the dems are definitely more open about it. Of course, when the repubs get executive power, it's hard to tell the difference. See "DHS", "Halliburton" for examples.

Explicit question
MSNBC Reporter: Should there be a database or system that tracks Muslims in this country?

Multiple subject answer. (Yeah, he's a politician)

Donald Trump: There should be a lot of systems. Beyond databases. I mean, we should have a lot of systems. And today you can do it. But right now we have to have a border, we have to have strength, we have to have a wall, and we cannot let what’s happening in this country happen any longer.

Non-explicit question. Trump gave a weasel paragraph, reporter did not follow up with an explicit subject.

MSNBC Reporter: But that’s something your White House would want to implement?

Trump covered 2 or 3 subjects. He can claim that his answer was for any of them.

Trump: Oh, I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.

So...Reporter gets to interpret his way, Trump gets to interpret another way.

Trump supporters get to think "damm rite we put them damm furrinners in whachucallit a database", Trump opponents get to think "Godwin".

It's a win-win situation.

Good enough. Read it. Yes, he would register Muslim immigrants into a database. Just like he would all other legal immigrants. Interestingly enough, pretty much how we do it now.

Or do we not track immigrants and visas, etc., with computers in this country?

Much ado about nothing, but fine entertainment. Keep it up please!
