I debated on putting this under the “Did I hear that right” topic, but decided it deserved its own.

The prompt was this interview on the QAnon mental illness. It involves religion in a big way, but is bigger than that.

One comment - I find most religion to be just as delusional as the QAnon spectacle, but for the longer lasting ones there are wide swings between malevolence and benevolence in their histories. I noted that the CNN guys gave a tip of the hat to mainstream religion as not being kooky, which I see as an ingrained fear of doing something that might piss off the “sane” delusionals.

I think it was simple math, not some higher ethics!

Trump embraced that choice and went full KKK.

Approved as part of Unicode 8.0, it rolled out to iOS 9.1 and Android Marshmallow earlier this year, and in the past three months, the meaning has become remarkably consistent. Dropped at the end of a sentence, the face typically suggests the previous statement should be taken in jest, like so:
