I have never heard “MARA.”
It seems to me that when evil people hijack something good and make it bad, the good people shouldn’t just abandon the good thing, but rather, should boldly TAKE IT BACK from the evil people and boldly proclaim it as the good thing that it really is.
There is nothing evil about a slogan to “Make America Great Again,” just as there is nothing evil about Pres. Obama’s campaign slogan (“Change We Need”).
For those who don’t live in the United States, I know that some of you are offended by the pride that we Americans visibly show in our nation. I have a German friend who is appalled by the American flags that are EVERYWHERE in our country–every business, school, and many homes fly the flag.
But that’s the way we are and always have been, and I am not ashamed to Stand UP for our flag and the country it stands for, and I am not ashamed to say with President Trump, “Let’s make America great again!” My only problem with the slogan is that I think we’re already GREAT!
Lots of people take the BIBLE or the Catholic Church and make it into something evil. Does this mean we should not use the Bible or be part of the Catholic Church? Of course not!
