    Default Survey: GOPers less likely to ask sexual offenders in party to quit than Dems

    http://time.com/time-person-of-the-y...ence-breakers/

    Interesting statistic in the new TIME magazine cover story with the Person of the Year Award. According to a TIME/Survey Monkey poll when the accused offender was in their party only 54% of Republicans would demand a resignation as compared to 74% of Democrats if the offender was in theirs. A 20 percent gap - that's no small difference.

    Why the huge difference? Maybe the acceptance of Trump had a lot to do with that, but it's hard to say.

    For the those looking for the relevant text in the story, here it is:

    That political divide was revealed in the TIME/SurveyMonkey poll, which found that Republicans were significantly more likely to excuse sexual misdeeds in their own party. The survey found that while a majority of Republicans and Democrats agree that a Democratic Congressman accused of sexual harassment should resign (71% and 74% respectively), when the accused offender was in the GOP, only 54% of Republicans would demand a resignation (compared to 82% of Democrats).

    After decades of marketing itself as the Christians' party, it's how it will be perceived. And unfair or not, perception is reality when it comes to the public eye. Christians supported Donald's candidacy and still support his presidency. Moore calls himself Christian. It will be hard for the masses to tease that apart.

    Gee, I wonder why Time isn't telling us that. Maybe because it's partisan-fever-dream utter nonsense?

    I am not going to say who is Christian and who is not cause i don't know.

    I do see your point about the perception though and it's a good one.

    The closest many get are pro life except for rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. That's the same position I have.
    Then your not pro-life, why is the fetus of rape or incest less deserving than others?

    This isn't an either/or situation. You can say no to Clinton, Moore and all the rest.

    Enough with that idiocy.

    We need MORE abortions in this country. There are waaaaay too many unwanted babies as it is...and you want to make that situation WORSE?????

    And since you support Trump, your morality level is at about ZERO, so you may as well support abortion rights.

    Trump personifies the WORST America has to offer. And cons celebrate him for it.

    Are you incapable of understanding that was a reference to the other Clinton with the first name of Bill?

    And when will left wingers finally denounce the Clintons, who we're fully prepared to welcome Bill back to the WH as First Gentleman?

    Such hypocrisy.

    I was talking about Bill. But now that you mentioned it, Hillary enabled her husband for decades, trashing his accusers while saying last year that every woman should be believed.

    Bill would have been cool president if she'd won, and none of the #MeToo movement would have happened.

    He's done a lot of good with Samaritans Purse. He just needs to stay out of politics.

    I'd say no one has done more to bring dishonor to it, at least in modern times.

    The point is, you can never be too greedy.
