The Danger Of Donald Trump Pandering To White Evangelicals!!!
Reader 45 clearly has no idea what he is opening up here. He told his political base of evangelical Christians that he would continue to restore the religious liberty many of them feel they’ve lost.
While millions of Americans spent Thursday glued to television coverage of former FBI director James Comey’s testimony, Donald Trump took time to bask in the adulation of Religious Right activists who gathered in D.C. for Road to Majority, the annual conference hosted by Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition. Every person of any amount of faith should be very, very uncomfortable with this twisted version of using "religion" to obtain political power.
To start with, Christianity in general especially a particular brand of it should not enjoy any special protection under the law. That should mean that Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Rastafarians, SIkhs, Buddhists, Native American religion, etc. get equal protection.
That also would mean that the Sister Wives may be having a very special episode in which their marriages all become legal under the proviso of freedom of religion. I'm OK with that, in fact I think it's the right thing to do, but I'm sure 45 has no idea what he just opened up.
