[Edited 1/26/18 10:40am]

Just from this reponse I thought I would make an analysis of the answers for Religion and Politics.



Love Prince and have been around the Org forever. My beliefs and political viewpoints aren't relevant to my love of the Purple One. There's a section of the Org for that, I choose not to post there anymore.

In reference to your statement "politically ignorant" blaming this group for the current US president; try an unbiased analysis and refrain from making judgments on people you don't know.
