Jews and Christians worship the same God - they are united on God.

What part of "when Christianity was mentioned" do you not get?

And it not like Democrats didn't applaud at all, as Etic stated that he believed that they weren't enthusiastic enough about doing it.

As are Muslims. I wonder if either side would've applauded if that was used instead?

No part, I get it all. I don't really care what Eric said. You said the fact that Eric has a Jewish sister was lost on him. That's not clear, at all. Most Christians and Jews respect each others' faiths. I know our Jewish friends like getting our Christmas card, many of them even say Merry Christmas to us and I acknowledge their major holidays with well wishes as well. I know you need to find a reason to hate everything about any Trump but in this case, you're just sound like a bitter old man - maybe one day you'll let go of the bitterness. Maybe reading the teaching of Christ will help with that - even if you don't believe in him, you'd have to be pretty lost to not agree with what he says about how we should treat one another.

I had that in there but took it out because turok didn't mention them and I have no idea if Eric has Islamic relatives.

Christianity is one of several faiths which worship an Abrahamic diety, but disagree on whether Jesus or Nazareth was his "only begotten Son". Muslims consider him to be a prophet, Most Jews believe that any Messiah still has yet to appear , and FLDS Mormons didn't exist as a faith until the US 1800s.

If you don't care what Eric said,, then why did you bother to reply to my post?

That was a rhetorical question btw, since I know why you did.

You know next to nothing about me, and unless your memory is a short one, I posted a few years ago here on DSF that my ancestors were so deeply Christian, that they built the first RCC outside of downtown Detroit in the early 1800s. I have had more than enough mostly involuntary immersion in that Christian denomination from childhood to early adulthood, (including being old enough to remember Mass being said in Latin only, attending one everyday except Saturday while attending parochial grade school), and hardly need your sanctimonious and condescending retorts to learn anything more about it whatsoever.

I don't need to know anything about your background or your childhood to make that statement and I don't care if your ancestors built the church of Satan. That has nothing to do with you or your comment about Eric Trump. My sanctimonious and condescending retort was based 100% on the hatred you spew here every day - nothing at all to do with where you went to grade school.

You mistake hatred for disgust and derision, and perhaps if you think that I am filled with hatred for those who you identify with, then the same could be posted about you and your posts.

Especially since you have demonstrated having no qualms about insulting and berating others who post here, moreso than most, instead of only who or what they have posted about. Politicians and public officials and their ADULT progeny are fair game in any case, but you are not entirely satisfied with that, it often has to get personal with you.

That's hardly being "Christlike", so maybe you should be the one to reread the NT.

Republicans and Christianity are two pees in a pod in the same lying shit sandwich.
