I am not from the USA. But I am interested in the kind of christianism which has established itself in that region. Can somebody explain to me, what kind of bible a "MILITARY CHALLENGE EDITION" is?

More Religion, Less Science
One of Trump’s tasks is to distract the public from the GOP’s more silent steps in transforming the USA into a more GOP compatible nation. In order to do that, sciences (especially natural sciences) have to be weakened and christianism has to be strengthened.

Trump and Bible Literacy
Trump and literacy already is an interesting issue. At least he fosters Bible literacy.
Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!

For Anyone who is wondering why he is randomly tweeting about the Bible,
— It's because his support from Evangelicals is slipping in the Polls!

“Impact of These Actions
on Vulnerable Children”
As far as I understand, Pence subscribes to Christian values. And Trump promotes bible literacy. But as for what they knowingly tolerate, both are evil nevertheless.
There are real solutions to finding the parents. The WH does not care and are not interested in resolving the problem which they created. Are they to incarcerate these children forever? What are they doing with them? What is their plan?

- Separated Children Placed in Office of Refugee Resettlement Care (U.S. Department of Health and Human Service, Office of Inspector General, 2019-01-17)
Why OIG Did This Review
In the spring of 2018, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) implemented a “zero-tolerance policy” for certain immigration offenses. As a result, DHS separated large numbers of alien families, with adults being held in Federal detention while their children were transferred to the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
On June 26, 2018, in a class action lawsuit, Ms. L v. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a Federal District Courtordered the Federal Government to identify and reunify separated families who met certain criteria.
Given the potential impact of these actions on vulnerable children and ORR operations, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted this review to determine the number and status of separated children (i.e., children separated from their parent or legal guardian by DHS) who have entered ORR care, including but not limited to the subset of separated children covered by Ms. L v. ICE. In a separate review, OIG is examining challenges that ORR-funded facilities have faced in reunifying separated children. On the basis of those findings, OIG plans to recommend solutions to improve ORR program operations.
- Family Separation May Have Hit Thousands More Migrant Children Than Reported (New York Times, 2019-01-17)
“This report confirms what we suspected: This cruel family separation practice was way bigger than the administration let on,” said Lee Gelernt, who challenged the policy in court on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union. “We will be back in court and ask the judge to order the government to explain these numbers,” he said.
- Family Separation by the Numbers (ACLU, 2018-10-23)
※ How long have they been separated from their parents?
For the children still in ORR care awaiting reunification, the median length of detention so far is 154 days — more than five months. Some have been in detention as long as a year. For example, one four-year-old child, “Luna,” was separated from her father for nearly 10 months before they were reunified in Guatemala on Sept. 28. This figure excludes separations where the child and the parent have decided to waive their right to reunification.
※ What was their age and gender?
Of the initial pool of 2,654 separated children, the majority was male (64.5 percent). 1,033 of them were under the age of ten when they were detained, including 103 under five. The data furnished by the government shows a sharp drop off in the number of separated children between five and four years old.
The president and his Christian vice president need to study some Christian values. How could they have tolerated that almost 3000 children had been seperated from their parents (https://t.co/PKlYtwxUud) without the documentation required for reuniting them?

Sarah Sanders on CBN: "I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president."

Sarah Sanders says God wanted Trump to be president. This raises a thorny theological question: Why did God let Hillary Clinton win the popular vote? https://t.co/aPGWjXYZ1I

Trump has fun to trigger scientists.
He enjoys to show them that science won't help them.
Only the weak rely on facts.
Trump can put himself above science.
He is God.

Double Standards Management System
No surprise. Some branches of the Christian Church seem to have evolved into a more or less sophisticated double standards management system.
Do Christians have a moral duty to support Trump, no matter what? https://t.co/pmrkugng0g
