    If there's a way to squeeze Donald's plus size figure into the Holy Trinity, I'm sure the christian right will figure out how to do it.

    They're not exactly good at being christians, and we don't want them on the right ;)

    You don't want them on the right? Then why are your politicians always appealing to them?

    I'm French and a Gaullist. We have a zero compromise with the far-right policy.

    There's not that much one can do with something this pixellated, but it seems consistent enough to be genuine...

    I mean, the neighbors in the cul-de-sac over from me have an American flag flying with a Trump flag just underneath it. Not quite the same thing, but still, I bet they would have that sign in their yard if they'd thought of it.

    Okay so since you're a Gaullist, you should understand the attachment that people have to national symbols like the flag, right? Shouldn't you find it extremely worrying when right-wing radicals hijack and pervert these symbols for their own ends?

    I do find it bothersome. But it's still my flag, and I am indeed attached to it, notably because of the revolutionary symbolism behind it. I'm not giving it up to them.

    Well unfortunately here in the states, liberals have already given up the flag to the far right.

    Turns out that sign isn't fake, by which I mean it isn't photoshopped and is an actual picture of a sign in someone's yard. But it is intended as a joke, not seriously. Some anti-Trump activist who is known for putting up joke signs in his yard.

    The sad thing is that you actually need to have that clarified.

    There are things I would not joke about. Even if supposedly sarcastic, I would still take it down, or better would not have put it up in the first place.

    I would agree with that, I think. This guy also got in trouble for public obscenity when he put up a sign in his yard with a large drawing of Trump and Putin having sex, so he is not, you know, one of the best and brightest of the anti-Trump activists.

    Yeah I mean as a Christian, idolatry towards anything is serious to me. Towards the government/President, definitely not a laughing matter because it's all too real.

    Unlike Notre-Dame's, the burning of the cathedral of Nantes is deliberate - three separate, synchroneous ignition points... Thankfully, it's not quite as bad at this point or as delicate of access...

    It's kind of wild that his thesis is "we were beginning to see the importance of loving every person" under a President who voluntarily and independently enacted a child separation policy at the border and described Neo-Nazi protesters as "very fine people."
