    1. @Sara Mill Zippy, the nazis were capitalists. They infiltrated the socialist party for power.
      “Fascism should be called corporatism, it would be more appropriate.” Benito Mussolini

    2. THE MODERN DEMONCRATES WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS THE DUMBEST EVER AND PURE EVIL — JFK AND MLK WOULD BE ASHAMED

    1. God unable to demonstrate he is real turned me into a non-believer. Of course boorish behavior of many xtians didn’t help.

  1. Trump supporter: I pray to god everyday!!!!
    God: LET IT GOooo!
    Trump supporter: You must be with the deep state too then..

    1. Gnosticism is a more rational view of things, although I’m definitely philosophically opposed to organized religion. It’s the ultimate cop-out in regards to personal responsibility for ones actions as far as I’m concerned.

    2. THE MODERN DEMONCRATES WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS THE DUMBEST EVER AND PURE EVIL — JFK AND MLK WOULD BE ASHAMED

    1. @J David Hopkins No, the founding fathers said there will be no established religion. You can worship however you like but you cannot jam your religion down someone eles’s throat. C.S. Lewis said theocracy is the worst form of government there is, because you wind up with a tyrant for a leader. C.S. Lewis was a Christian. The people in the United States who claim to be Christians are fake ones. They use the cover of God to justify evil. They are certainly no testimony to being a Christian.

    2. @Abouttime K That is bs perpetrated by the right. No one is saying a person cannot worship in whatever religion they choose, but we are not a theocracy, and we will have no sharia law, Christian, Muslim or any other, that religious people want to jam down everyone’s throats.

    1. @Hugo Munoz For those who have actually read the Bible, it’s not confusing. What Trump and his followers are doing is wrong.

  2. *FASCISTS* that’s the correct term. Not “the Christian right”, Fascists. I say that as an author in Europe versed in this…

    1. @Guy North The fact remains that the God of the Bible sanctioned slavery and a lot of other immoral and evil things!

    1. Any charitable organization that doesn’t spend 90% of the monies they bring in directly on their stated mission, shouldn’t be considered a charity for tax purposes.

    1. I like the word narrow-minded a lot… You should check out Spiral Dynamics , it ties it all together

    2. @Kory Ogden – The children are blameless, however, because ‘hate’ *is taught* …the ‘adults’ *are the ones to blame,* for instilling such ill-will in the innocent.

  3. “Rage, resentment, and paranoia”
    Those things are very profitable to some organizations. As long as that persists, the system will stay as is.

  4. Back in the day there was the ‘Moral Majority’ – however, truthfully is wasn’t either – it wasn’t Moral and it wasn’t the Majority. That thought process has morphed into today’s Evangelicals – which still aren’t moral or a majority.

    1. You are one of the rare people who knows this. One of the founders of the “Moral Majority” organization admitted that they were never a majority. He explained that, if all Americans voted, the religious right would never win any elections. He said this way back in 1980.

  5. When I hear “Christian Right,” I think Timothy McVeigh. This has been brewing for years. Trump just gave it a voice.

  6. “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”
    ― Benjamin Franklin
