    Are we allowed to respect and honor our President?

    Is it just wrong to uplift our president? Does Social Media now make it wrong to support people? Or are we now socially commanded to be outraged at everything? My family is loved and well fed and happy. Is it wrong to be thankful?

    you may do whatever you like. but everyone else has that option as well. surely you noticed the 8 years of unending sourness at the obamas? if youve been on hubpages, you couldnt miss it. count yourself lucky no one screamed "you lie" at this president during his speech.

    It is difficult, yes, not to be swayed or affected by others in this interconnected world. Still, it is your own decision and others will make theirs. if you've made it and it has worked out in your favour with the electorate. Great!

    I would suggest that you keep your eyes open. God works differently from us and is not bound by plans or rules. Indeed, he can change it in an instant! Ultimately all works out for the best, though it can seem to do so slowly. Patience is necessary, together with the wisdom never to worry about things we cannot change.

    America has not lost her Soul. She has produced some of the finest men and women known and their Spirit still affects us even today. The same America will march, run, fly ... at the appointed hour. I wish it God speed!

    I feel that if people truly respect Trump they are entitled to how they feel and shouldn't hide it from anyone. They are entitled to their opinion. I respect Trump as a business man but he hasn't been our President long enough for me to make an opinion on that.

    We are called to respect the position of those in authority. However having said that Each and every person has to earn that respect for his or herself.
    I guess rather than respect of person I should qualify the word respect or change it to condone. Actions of hate we should never condone.

      John what a nice concept. It fits in with our friends who simply do not have space or place for any opposition, they just live.
