When religion gets involved in matter of  Government and secular laws, it always spells disaster. 

History can tell us that.  the Inquisition, primer example of what a church may do when they feel that the have the  power to do so.

All the other wars in which religion had the reason for being. we have seen the results. The Crusades.
supposedly religion and state are separated, but they are not,  And people that want to obtain power, immediately fly the flag of religion. in order to convince others that they are correct.
Now we have The Evangelists, that think that they have the power to impose whatever beliefs they seem to have on others.
And yet show a lack of morality on other issues. But Don't talk to them about gays, or abortion. because they will become your enemies.
I call them the Evangelists those with the flexible morals.
This country thinks that being white is a banner of  honor? and those that are not, are not existent in this society. or pushed aside.
This country has tolerated racism since its inception and it will  not be easy to put those beliefs aside.

Trump's election reflects a deep need to maintain or even strengthen white Christian cultural supremacy in the US.  Which is why the Republican party is fielding so many white supremacists, Holocaust deniers, and neo-nazis on local tickets. 

 

How do you stop it?  Two things:

 

1) End white fragility.   People who are working to eliminate their bias know who they are.  They are the ones who don't get immediately defensive when talking about racism.   They need to make sure they keep working on their bias, raise their kids not to be biased, teach themselves to be aware of bias, and call it out when they see it.  

 

2)  Vote for Democrats.  Fight like heck to stop Christian precepts from infecting our legal system and government.    Many Trump supporters want this to be a Christian nation.   But religious states always discriminate and they most often discriminate against women.    And a huge problem with court rulings that permit encroachment of religion where we traditionally have freedom from religion, is that someday, when there is a different majority religion (even just regionally), people will use that religion to discriminate againt Christians.  And it's all our fault for allowing religious rulings.

This thread is how to prevent future Trumps. 
And I got reminded  of an interview that I saw many years ago. with Roxanne ex husband, I  can't remember his name.
They were speaking about the success of the TV show.  and then he   actually made this comment  that I have never forgotten.

WE REPRESENT AMERCIAS' WORSE NIGHTMARE, WHITE TRASH  WITH MONEY.
And that is exactly what has happened in this country. White trash now is beineg vindicated, exhaulted, emulated and accepted. So what do you expect from your President ?  that he would actualyi represent anything  different?

Nonsense?  Or is you are attempting to denigrating my post for your own benefit?  I think so.  Your post is an example of trying to win an argument or discussion by attacking the other's credibility.  That is the trend in all your posts.

 

Then you go on as usual by attempting to make political opinions you don't agree with as nefarious.  That was a favorite tactic on the Soviet Union back during the Cold War.

 

There is no cult involved in political discussions, just a difference of opinions.  Calling those that don't agree with one's opinion as a cult is just a method of casting doubt on others opinion...the same as claiming they worship a political figure.

The person who should be shamed is the one who claims to be an Independent, but who sounds more like a far leftist.  So who are you considering that you would want to vote for in 2020?  Or perhaps are you campaigning for your choice as Senator or Representative in this fall's election?

 

That instead of camping out here criticizing others for their constitutionally protected right to have a political opinion contrary to yours?

 

Why should anyone be shamed because of your posts? 


 

Why should the content of posts - expressing support of a life long coward, liar, crook, cheat, adulterer, and malignant narcissist who cares much more for his own and other's opinions of himself than he does for the good of the nation - be accepted as being honest, honorable and patriotically American?

 

Solely because supporters of an abomination post content jonesing for uncritical acceptance and approval?

 

Perhaps residents of the fairy tale alternate reality may feel it's their due - but that's not how things work in the real world...

I'd like to know when despising someone because he's a pathological liar and a despicable human being made one a far leftist? Are you serious? When did that become the criteria for being a leftist in the real world?

 

This yet another example of how and why Trump Cult members live in an bizarre, alternate reality.

Isn't the topic about how to prevent future Trumps?


You won't be able to prevent future Trumps unless the society that we live begins to change, and accept that alternative facts do not represent the  truth,, that laying is not the way to govern, that respecting  the Rule of Law is imperative for any Prtesident. and Congress. and to really change the mentality of Congressmena and Senators that they don't have a job for life.
