Why don't those so-called "historians" value narcissism and psychopathology as Presidential virtues?
Why waste bandwidth asking questions to which you already know the answer?

However (my mild complaint), why pick on hillbillies? They are nice rural folks. My seminary teacher for Old Testament was an older woman.
Yeah, but was your seminary teacher for [the] Old Testament a hillbilly, too?

Re: The Sex, the Violence, the Hideous Crimes in the Holy Bible: Lot’s Story

I reject the notion of sexual activity as having a pre-defined "point", . . . You can reject the notion that the earth revolves around the sun, too, but I somewhat doubt that your rejection will alter reality very much. . . . and look at the ways it can be seen to play a variety of important functi...

I can't believe how foolishly I overestimated my fellow Americans, even my own family members.
My friend, a word of advice: Never, ever, EVER overestimate your fellow Americans. You'll just be disappointed each and every time.

Remind me, what was that stuff about Trump being urged to use the Insurrection Act on becoming President, to enable himself to call on the military to deal with any organised opposition to his policies?

As it turns out, the people who have been fighting the ludicrously monikered "gay agenda" and fighting for the nuclear family are primed to make Trump a dictator and squelch free speech by using the military to crack down on dissent.

Re: The Sex, the Violence, the Hideous Crimes in the Holy Bible: Lot’s Story

Sure, humans have figured out that it feels good and have long enough memories (about the sex they've had in the past) to want to recreate the experience for sheer pleasure rather than reproduction, but that doesn't overturn the fact that the point of sex is to propagate the species. . . . in human...
