If God, Himself, gave US free will, why does the Reich Wing feel THEY know better what HE wants?

As a Christian, I truly believe that God will help anyone who wants to have a child and even if it's a surprise or a rape, God can help turn it around. Miracles happen.

As a woman, I don't think it's my call to decide about who anyone should love or if they use birth control or keep a child or give it up or have an abortion. Personal choice is why God put US here.

So WHY if GOD Himself is not interfering with people's free will in these areas and He didn't put it in the 10 Commandments does the Reich Wing feel it is THEIR job to enforce what God leaves up to individual choice?

I am sure God would love to see every child loved and welcomed into this world with open arms and parents who are ready, willing and able or at least game enough to get prepared in the 9 months it takes for a little one to arrive (as much as one can manage) to be responsible for a new life.

But if I can understand that circumstances vary all around the world and person to person, I am pretty sure God gets it and takes these matters on a case by case basis and tries to help people through it one way or another if He is asked for help.

It just seems REALLY POWER HUNGRY to put oneself in the place of GOD and DECIDE ON HIS BEHALF what should/should not be done.

Any one else think that way?

tRump is officially the SECOND WORST pRez in history.

SORRY EVERYONE, there were several links from different sources. Here is the 2021 link to the survey that once finished rounded out the numbers.



The 1948 Schlesinger poll ranked Warren G. Harding, Ulysses S. Grant, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan and Zachary Taylor as the five worst presidents in American history. In the 1982 Siena poll, the list was the same, save for Andrew Johnson taking Taylor's spot in the bottom five. Future iterations of the poll saw little turnover among the worst of the bunch, with Johnson, Buchanan, Harding and Pierce perennial presences.

"The presidents at the bottom were the ones who failed to safeguard us and adequately lead us during periods of crisis, or tainted the office through scandal and incompetence," Levy says. "Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, Warren G. Harding – they earned their spots at the bottom."

In a bid to determine which presidents are viewed as the least successful in American history, U.S. News averaged the results of three recent scholarly surveys – the latest rankings from Siena College and C-SPAN, as well as a Presidential Greatness poll conducted by researchers at the University of Houston and Boise State.

After extensive debate by historians and experts throughout his presidency about where he might land upon a list of the oval office's worst, Donald Trump is the second-worst president in the U.S. News Worst Presidents rankings.
