    This is a question asked on another group and my neighbor is one of them, her tv blasts all day with Fox and all the evangelical preachers and their push for MONEY. (Pat Robertson, Benny Hin, Jim and Tammy Baker et al. )

    One person responded because: they are brainless.

    I believe the Evangelicals are dangerous as they continue to lead people down dangerous roads. My neighbor went off the other day on all the demons in her apt and in our apt bldg and she then had a friend from her "group" come in and go off in TONGUES to get the demons out of her apt. I hope it worked, I could hear going off.

    I told her I love our apt bldg and then I said to her "if you are so unhappy with the demons", MOVE. She can't afford to. We live a long block from the Pacific Ocean in one of the most desirable areas in the U.S. in my estimation.

    On religion in general, some is much more dangerous than others. I was brainwashed for decades and it took YEARS to get off the fence and I finally did in my early 60's...

    Why would you care what someone else chooses to do in their own home?
    People have a right to believe what they want to believe.
    Perhaps they voted for Trump because the alternative is a political party that somehow has come to the conclusion that everyone who doesn't agree with them or doesn't want to do things their way is....what's the word you used?.....brainless.

    Bess, your response does not surprise me.

    I think it's a BIT disturbing to have a neighbor flipping out about the demons in her life. I don't know other Evangelicals but maybe they are all talking like that. Talk about being BRAINwashed, that's what MOST religions do.

    You know, it's easy to discuss religion without disrespecting those with differing opinions. You should give it a try, Joy. Sounds to me like your neighbor might have some mental issues, but then we are only hearing your side of the story.

    And I thought you said you weren't going to discuss politics anymore?

    I think it's deplorable to call someone brainless because of their religious beliefs.

    I find MANY more issues than that one to call a person brainless.

    I believe carrying guns and killing others are WAY up there, way way.

    So, your post is incorrect-

    "my neighbor is one of them, her tv blasts all day with Fox and all the evangelical preachers and their push for MONEY. (Pat Robertson, Benny Hin, Jim and Tammy Baker et al. )"

    I think you're off your meds.

    I think she needs to take a Vitamin E with vodka and relax. She's way too uptight.,

    Whatever happened to the First Amendment? It separates the state from the church, not the church from the state. Too many using their political power to legislate their religious beliefs or vice versa. Why do people think conservatives are always Christians or Jewish? I know more conservative atheist than religious ones. Jimmy Carter was a liberal and a devout southern Baptist. I don't believe that all or even a MAJORITY of evangelist or Christians voted for DJT. Not where I live anyway.

    Why did evangelicals vote for DJT in 2016?
    The same reason Jews, Atheists, Catholics, Hindi’s, Krishna’s, Mormons, 7th Day Adventists, Voodoo worshippers, black people, caucasian people, American natives, Asians and the old gal down the street did.......because unlike in some other countries.........they could !!!
