Re: “Maria's Mexican Grill

I ordered fajitas and a pint of mild salsa take out last night. Got home and there were no tortillas and the salsa was too hot to eat so we put everything in the fridge and saved the fajitas for tonight. I stopped back by Maria's tonight, with my $27.25 receipt, to get my tortillas and MILD salsa. I have been a regular customer for at least 13 yrs and this is only the second time we have EVER had an issue with dinner there or with take out. They gave us a quart of hot salsa instead of mild earlier this year but they did correct the issue...not without a fight though. Well, tonight the owners daughter very rudely told me that she would give me the tortillas but she was going to charge me for them...REALLY? REALLY? I stopped by tonight in the rain, at almost 10 PM (I work late hours) to pick up what I already paid for last night and even left a tip, and am now told that she is going to charge me AGAIN! I think not! I picked up my receipt, told her that I would never come back and the response I received was 'OK'. Obviously she does not know the value of a customer. I came home and trashed my untouched tortilla-less fajitas and HOT salsa. I was no longer interested in their Mexican food. There are lots of other Mexican Restaurants that aren't disrespectful. I will not tolerate treatnent like that! I have always praised their food and service and have been tbeir #1 fan. I will never, ever step foot in Maria's again and will also tell my Johns Island neighbors and friends what terrible treatment I received! It is unbelievable that the owners daughter will treat a LOYAL customets this way.

Re: “How do Christians justify Trumpian politics?

By the way, Barack Hussein Obama on multiple occasions mistakenly referred to himself as a Muslim. No Christian I've ever known ever made that mistake.

I don't need George Stephanopoulos to remind me I'm not a Muslim. Do any Christians you know need to be reminded they are not Muslim? Of course not. Obama was a FRAUD.

Obama: "My Muslim Faith" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKGdkqfBIC…

Born to a Muslim father and raised in his early childhood by a Muslim stepfather in a Muslim nation where he was registered in school as a Muslim and meeting over 100 times with the Muslim Brotherhood as President while funneling them billions of dollars in funding and arms and having HAMAS supporters in his 2008 campaign team...nahhhh Sounds like the typical thing a Christian President would do...heh?

I think, on one hand, non-Muslims cannot stereotype, but I also think the Muslim community has to think about how WE make sure that children are not being affected with this twisted notion that somehow they can kill innocent people.

He even emphasized the word we. We the Muslim Community.

Face it, we had an ISLAMOPHILIAC for a President!

"The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." -Barack Hussein

"The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer - Barack Hussein

Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. - Barack Hussein

Islam has always been part of America - Barack Hussein

we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities - Barack Hussein

I made clear that America is not and never will be at war with Islam. - Barack Hussein

Islam is an important part of promoting peace. - Barack Hussein

So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed - Barack Hussein

Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality. - Barack Hussein

I also know that Islam has always been a part of Americas story. - Barack Hussein

Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation - Barack Hussein

No Christian I know is that obsessed with entrenching Islam into American politics.
Barack is an Arabic name. Hussein is an Arabic name.

The Quran gives Muslims permission to be this deceptive:

Quran (40:28) - A man is introduced as a believer, but one who had to "hide his faith" among those who are not believers.

Quran (2:225) - "Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts"

And the Quran gives Muslims permission to be violent. Definitely not a "religion of peace":

Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing...

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Quran (9:123) - "O you who believe! Fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."

Quran (47:3-4) - "Those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow the truth from their lord. Thus does Allah set forth form men their lessons by similitude. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them)"

If these are the kind of people and beliefs you want to be "diverse" with and "multi-cultural" with, then good luck with that. Go buy your daughter a black cloak and begin memorizing your Quran verses because you will eventually have to convert or die. Abort your white and black babies. Sacrificing virgin innocent blood is a Satanic practice after all. Muslims are not aborting theirs and they are having an average of more than 3 children per couple. White DemoKrat women abort their babies and adopt cats. And Black women who actually don't abort their babies can't seem to raise a child with any father around. DemoKrat politics are destructive. The welfare state rewards single parenthood and rewards bad behavior and anti-Christian choices. Christians do not give charity to drug addicts or gamblers because it aids in their self destruction. Government, however, gives welfare and resources to people active in destroying their own lives. There's no drug test to get a cash welfare check. Government doesn't care if you gamble your entire welfare check on lottery tickets or dice/card games. Christians donate their own money. Government steals money from the most productive citizens in society and then redistributes those resources to the least productive citizens in society. In other words, DemoKrats punish good behavior and responsible citizens and rewards bad behavior and irresponsible citizens. There's a good reason that Donald Trump won all household groups making between $50,000 and $250,000 per year. That's basically the entire middle class. That's because the middle class is who DemoKKKrats hurt the most. It makes sense that DemoKKKrats get most of their votes from the very poor and the very rich. They want a two class communist system with no middle class.

Re: “How do Christians justify Trumpian politics?

Somebody has some sense here and not the writer Ali.
First, I'm a Christian and support President Trump. I will respond to your article, many errors and fallacies in your article. You are right on one thing Christians 1. Love God 2. Love others as yourself
President Trump has made errors in his life, and has been immoral with women. This may be true. But, it is the past. People change. He is married and committed to a woman now. He does not talk about women disrespectfully now and is not sexually immoral outside his marriage.
Now, you are really mixed up and living in a fairyland. President Trump does not encourage violence and is not racist, he supports Law and Order and the Police!
Something our last President did not do. President Trump is actually protecting the people of the United States by standing up to other countries, and support Police. People should realize the Police and ICE protect people and the United States.
Supporting the Law, and Law Enforcement does not mean you encourage violence, it means you are upholding the laws and believe in law and order.
He is not racist either, again, he believes in law, order, and supporting both local and Federal Law Enforcement.
The Caravan is a group of Illegal Immigrants, not a group of legal immigrants. There are criminals, gang members, and vagrants mixed in with the thousands of illegal immigrants.
We love people, but we also believe in Enforcing the Laws of the Land, and President Trump supports ICE to do their job! These illegal immigrants have no respect for Federal Law or the United States!
Christians do love people, but the Bible clearly states, people should work or go hungry, we have many people that are lazy, tax burdens, and receive welfare. Further, the Bible is clear in Romans in the New testament that we should obey authority and our government and laws. Not only should the illegal aliens you call migrants be turned away at the Border, they should be arrested for violating Federal Law.
You fail to understand if I am an LEO (law enforcement Officer) and I see somebody breaking the law, I may arrest him/her to protect other people. I will treat the person in custody with respect.
Please wake up and realize your article is very bias and filled with fallacies. President Trump has my support as a Christian as I am far from perfect myself.

Re: “Words matter more, party matters less, and other observations from the 2018 Charleston midterm elections

Tom Martin,

Sorry buddy. You are wrong as usual.

There are so many studies that back me up and state the opposite of what you claim.

IQ is in the genes
https://www.sciencenewsforstudents.org/art…

IQ is mostly inherited, new research suggests
https://geneticliteracyproject.org/2015/01…

https://nationalvanguard.org/2016/07/14-re…

There's no question that IQ is mostly genetic. How much of that is along racial lines can be disputed. An Arabic Caucasian or Hispanic Caucasian has significant genetic differentiation from an European Caucasian. Trying to group them altogether is not scientific. It is more likely that melanin levels fluctuate more rapidly through the passage of genes than intelligence since the brain is far more sophisticated than mere skin pigment.

You can take a dumb kid born to dumb parents and put him in the best school in a rich community with the best teachers and he will still under-perform. That's just the way it is. Multiple studies back me up. You can take a very intelligent kid and put him in poverty in a bad school and he will still thrive and retain knowledge and exhibit better critical thinking skills.

Certainly environmental factors have some effect, but it is ridiculously overstated.

Multiple studies show that poverty has little to do with educational achievement. Poor white children still score higher on standardized tests than rich black children. The Black-White Test Score Gap https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.co…

"AFRICAN AMERICANS currently score lower than European Americans on vocabulary, reading, and mathematics tests, as well as on tests that claim to measure scholastic aptitude and intelligence. This gap appears before children enter kindergarten (figure 1-1), and it persists into adulthood. It has narrowed since 1970, but the typical American black still scores below 75 percent of American whites on most standardized tests. On some tests the typical American black scores below more than 85 percent of whites. "

The study finds that not only do poor white children score higher on standardized tests than rich black children, but that black children with significant white ancestry (light skinned blacks) score higher than dark skinned blacks.

"Racial disparities in parental wealth have almost no effect on children's test scores once Phillips and her colleagues control income, schooling, and the mother's test scores."

I have done extensive research on this subject because I was a member of a committee where many people made false claims that income or wealth or funding had significant impact on intelligence and school testing.

Let's be honest, if DemoKKKrats didn't believe that there were disparities in IQ then they would do away with affirmative action. DemoKKKrats continue the racist program of affirmative action because they do not believe blacks can compete on a level playing field. That's why college universities such as Harvard significantly curve a black applicants GPA and SAT scores to give them a handicap to help compete with white and Asian applicants. That is called "black privilege." Being allowed to perform worse than others but having the "black privilege" of getting a helping hand and racially bias boost because DemoKKKrats don't think you are equal. If I were a hard working intelligent black man I would 100% be against affirmative action and demand that I be held to the same standards and qualifications as everyone else so that my hard work and accomplishments would not be diminished. But sadly, most black DemoKKKrats enjoy being classified as victims. It provides a luxurious and convenient excuse for what would otherwise be considered personal failures in life.

Re: “How do Christians justify Trumpian politics?

Imperfectly representing Christianity is better than explicitly mocking Christianity.

"too many Christians worship Republicanism and Nationalism instead of God."

It isn't a mutually exclusive choice. Straw man. A Christian can put God first, and also support a nation that protects his religious freedom to be a Christian in the first place. DemoKrats mock God and attempt to sabotage and mock Christianity every chance they get.

DemoKrats are bigoted against Christians. I don't want to pay for you to kill babies. So stop being a bigot and respect my Christian values and stop stealing my tax dollars to pay for your abortion clinics and genital mutilations. The story about the birth of Jesus is about his parents, Mary and Joseph, fleeing to Bethlehem and then to Egypt to escape King Herod's demand that his army ABORT every newborn male child. DemoKrats build these abortion clinics in mostly black and minority neighborhoods and disproportionately abort a large number of babies that happen to be black.

"Christians are bound to very simple laws: love God, love others, and spread the word of the resurrection. That's it."

No. That's not it you putz. The 10 Commandments alone are more laws than the three you listed. Don't speak about my religion that you know nothing about. Go praise your child molester pedophile prophet Mohammed.

"they are largely resigned to be political chess pieces"

Most Christians I know believe in individualism and vote for small government. You're the one that wants to give collectivist, unchecked power to a government which you want to have powers far beyond those enumerated to it in the Constitution. You also want to give up your guns so only the politicians have them. You're the one that wants to be a pawn to a large, authoritarian government with huge taxing powers and powers far beyond those granted to it in the Constitution. If you were a real man, you'd have faith in your own abilities and not depend on social safety nets and a nanny government to hold your little pawnboy hand. Right, snowflakes? Nanny government needs to give you housing and welfare and obamaphones and food stamps because you have no faith in either GOD or your own abilities?

If you hate America so much then why do you want to pay more taxes to its government?

Nationalism means that the government acts in the best interests of its own citizens. Whose interests do you want the government to concern over your own? Foreigners' interests? Iranians? The EU's?

Trump was one of only two candidates who had the courage to say he was pro life. The rest of the Republican candidates wimped around the issue. That is the most important issue to a Christian.

President Trump is probably not the most loyal husband. Neither is Bill Clinton or John Edwards or most of your DemoKrat politicians. I didn't vote for Trump to be my husband. Obama might be a loyal husband, but made it a priority to meet with Muslim Brotherhood agents and funnel billions of dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood. So being a good husband didn't mean he was good for Christians when Muslims are taught to deceive and kill Christians by the Quran. Not to mention the horrible treatment of Christians who suffered under the Islamic Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years.

What would Jesus do? He was put to death by the same sort of false, politicized accusations you wanted to hang Kavanaugh with. -By a corrupt government which you want to give more tax dollars to. Obama had such an appreciation for Caesar that he named his cabinet members Czars.

And let's not forget about the Clinton's. Bill Clinton bombed over a thousand Christians in Serbia, a predominantly Eastern Orthodox Christian country, on the very day that Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter; killing thousands of innocent civilians just prior to the Saudis signing a letter of intent to buy $6 billion worth of Boeing aircraft just so they could build the trans-Balkan pipeline - known as AMBO pipeline after its builder and operator the US-registered Albanian Macedonian Bulgarian Oil Corporation - to pass through. So why did Christians not care and vote for Hillary Clinton anyways?

Nothing about the DemoKrat party stands for Christianity. It is the antithesis of Christianity.

Re: “How do Christians justify Trumpian politics?

I love how leftists always bring up Fox news. Lol. You are the sheep, you are the ones who listen to your Govt/Media establishment that owns 98% of the MSM, including Fox which are Faux opposition.

You hate Trump for one of two reasons. One, you hate the United States or Two, you are ignorant and a sheep that can't form your own thoughts or opinion.

I voted for Trump because of Open Borders, Bad trade deals and destruction of the corporate hold on politics.

Please lefties, explain in details how open borders is good for the working middle class or poor in this country. You can't. Sheep to the slaughter.

Re: “How do Christians justify Trumpian politics?

Tom Parker, I certainly did not vote for Trump. And as I predicted when he was elected, he turned out to be the worst president we have had for decades.
The comment I wrote was to answer the question of why did some Christians who knew Trump was evil, still vote for him. The answer lies in the unbiblical but currently popular doctrine of conservative Christians that abortion is a sin, and that this doctrine is so important that it has to be imposed on our laws, abortion has to be banned, freedom of religion does not matter, it does not matter if someone believes it is not a sin, this supreme doctrine has to be imposed on all.
So because Trump promised to nominate very conservative justices to the Supreme Court, with the hope of overturning Roe v Wade, they felt they had to vote for him, in order to impose their doctrine on us. They would have voted for Satan himself, if he promised to nominate very conservative justices to the Supreme Court.
