I'd say the GOP has been doing that for years if not decades.
Oh for sure. Protecting freedom of religion is essentially weaponizing it. They've also weaponized speech by defending 1A. Both are really acts of violence against vulnerable populations.

If he was protecting freedom of religion he'd have multiple religious leaders from across all religions frequent the white house.

The more I think about this and watch her crazy sermons...and then see what she's been brought into the White House to do, it's clear that what's going on here is the weaponization of religion. When religious fervor is being harnessed to do evil--such as put kids in cages or whatnot--you know the Devil is down there stroking his big red schlong.
Karl Rove was the most astute at this and he was a known anti-religion guy. Everything he disliked about it he loved in politics.

Yes- Obama did put kids in cages (it is his era that you see the pictures of, maybe MSNBC didn't fill you in on that) perhaps in the name of Islam- which is actually a subsidiary of the one you spoke of in that last weird, weird sentence you typed. Wow.

So you're back to "Obama is a secret Muslim"? Seek help.

Name just one way Trump is protecting "freedom of religion".

The "greatest" dictators use religion to get the masses to comply. To see the Evangelicals truly believe that Trump cares about them any more than that they give him power and wealth, or that they really believe Trump is a religious person, is beyond disturbing.

It is. If you've seen the video of the MAGA'er saying if Trump told him one thing and Jesus told him it was a lie, he's not sure who he'd believe, it says it all.

Actually they were quite religious, by many standards. Stalin, of course, believed in opiates which were the religion of the masses. Hitler was a student of Bible lore. He once presented Herman Goring with a life-sized figure of Lot’s wife carved out of salt block to be used as a lure for wild deer and elk at Goring’s country estate Carinhall*. Mao praised fine oolong teas; Castro, aged Cuban tobaccos. And Pol Pot? Just another dink who worshipped rice. What is it you believe in most:confused:

* Ed. Note: Herman Goring, between botching the air war against Britain, and failing in the defense of the Fatherland, enjoyed eating copious amounts of venison undt spaetzle along with flagons of fine Pilsner bier. Yes, he was a fatty.

What they also don't understand: all of this division and hell they are creating only serves to hurt us and benefit our enemies; while this same propaganda and division is being fomented by....our enemies. Especially given the circus we've seen of the Republicans the past two days in front of the testimony of true American patriots, those among the greatest Americans who have spent their lives for the good of our country, those who serve to end corruption instead of foment it...at what point do they wake up and realize that they need to grow up, be brave men and women, and stand up for what is right instead of support the wrong, with the future of our very Constitutional system at stake? It is so completely disheartening to witness.

To defend Rick Perry on this, I think what Perry is saying is that by the definition of Perry's religion, Trump's God-given destiny was to be POTUS.

Extrapolating that, though, one can argue that God is testing our country's system of values by accepting or denying bad behavior by the POTUS. Kind of like the tale of the family on the roof of their house in the middle of a flood, and as God sends boats their way, they keep refusing rescue, because God will save us. We have the legal tools to save ourselves. Will we use them?

If you're a Bible reading Christian you should have no problem with this statement or belief.

Unfortunately I agree with blizzard here and I don't see why people are outraged about Perry's comment. Anybody who believes in the bible believes what Perry said.

Is it any wonder that descendants of anti-abolitionist, pro-confederates hate Lincoln??
