Thought this point was worthy of its own thread...

“Most of the members of the Church here on Grand Bahama Island do not have the resources to evacuate. Therefore, they are staying put,” President Parker said in an email.

Couldn't the Church with $32 billion sitting in a stock portfolio provide the necessary resources for them to be able to evacuate?

Unless the Bahamian members have relatives in the US with whom they can stay, the Trump administration is unlikely to allow them into the US.

Because of a public statement by Trump suggesting he would withhold temporary protected status (TPS) normally granted to disaster victims from other countries, more than 100 Bahamian refugees were forced to disembark from a cruise ship they had legally boarded to come to the US.

In his North Carolina rally earlier this week, Trump claimed to love and stand up for his religious supporters, but religious privilege only extends so far, and apparently less than 54 miles offshore to a mainly non-white constituency.

Among the many problems that I have with the Mormon Church and much of its membership here in the US, their continued unreasoned support of the adulterous, demented, Russian intelligence asset who spends his days eating Big Macs and watching Fox news in the White House, is near the top of the list.

Trump is no Christian. He has no Christian love for anyone and doesn't care about anyone except for himself. He divides and spread chaos and fear. That is how he operates. I doubt he even cares much for his wife who is nothing but a sex toy (poodle) for him to amuse himself. I doubt he gives a damn about his young son and simply treats him like property.

The nation is in a state of fear these days. The nation is divided and has lost its goodwill. But this too will come to an end. The Trump days are numbered. The Republican party is forever damaged and has shot itself in the foot.
