Which Avenger could be the next EA Chief Executive?

Ronin / Clint / Hawkeye

Hear me out here! The guy is a passionate family man, with a do what needs to be done attitude to protect his friends. True, people may have problems with some of his measures, but he will ensure churches / various EA people don’t stray to far away from the EA party line.

Black Widow

She basically led The Avengers during “The 5 years”
There could be a gentle issue with her being dead though.

Vision

This guy is Vision.
But also dead. (At least for now)

Iron Man

Wanda Maximoff

Because why not?
Would you want to mess with her?
She’s still alive.
She flipping kicks ass.
There is a risk that her Superhero name of Scarlet Witch may prove problematic.

Thor

The sort of Avenger that could be good at it, but would prefer to be off having adventures in space instead? Simply put. He would be awesome, would tick the boxes, but would hand it over as soon as the first ship comes along.
People may get a little upset about the whole “god” thing though.

The Hulk

No not when he’s all “Hulk Smash”, but when he’s Endgame “Professor Hulk”.
The dudes clever, good with kids, and while he hasn’t shown massive leader experience, he’s big and green. I’d listen to him.

Who would you choose?

Donald Trump and The Christian Vote?

Lets take a moment and talk about Donald Trump, yes that slightly controversial* guy that is campaigning to be President of The United States.

I came across a little article online the other day called “Sorry, Evangelicals, You Can’t Play the Trump Card and the God Card at Same Time“. Give it a read, but I was particularly interested by the opening paragraphs…

Did you catch Donald Trump on “60 Minutes” recently, when he gave the first interview with his new running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence?

Lesley Stahl was asking about the “chemistry between you two” — it sounded as if she were interviewing them for a dating website — noting that Pence was very low-key and very religious and that Trump was a brash New Yorker, when The Donald interrupted her. “Religious,” he said.

“Religious?”

“Religious,” he insisted.

“Are you?” she asked.

“Yeah, religious.”

And then, by way of proof, he offered, “Hey, I won the evangelicals.”

Now, that is true. Trump won the evangelical vote in the primaries, a point he proudly noted in his acceptance speech. Not only that, but polling released days before the interview by the Pew Research Center showed that he has the support of 78% of white evangelical voters nationwide. And that was before he chose the born-again Pence as his vice presidential sidekick.

If Sofa has read this properly it looks like Trump, may be quite popular with Christians in the United States. While Sofa realises that there are culture differences between America and England**, Sofa is trying to understand how a guy who makes the sort of comments that he does about Muslims, Mexicans, Iran payments, Women, The Pope, and building walls***, can be so popular.

So, I have a question.

Why do (some) American Christians appear to like Donald Trump?

I’d love to hear from you on this. Either if you have ideas of your own, or if you are a Christian who will vote for Trump, why are you planning on voting for him?

Please let me know in one of the following ways:

If I get a decent collection of responses, I may share them in a future post, but I will keep them anonymous!

Please no arguing, lets try and play nice.

* I’m under playing it a little.
** For example, I’ve heard we English like Tea a bit more then Americans do.
*** Personally I quite like the idea of bridges.
