Trump and the Republicans Are Redefining “Religious Freedom”

Religious freedom is freedom for Us Protestant Chretins to inflict our views on the rest of the world. Anybody who doesn't agree with this is not to have any freedoms, because Our Views is the right one, Period.

There's the One True God and then there is the stake to burn at. It is a free choice. I'm not stupid. Have Bible will recite. :coffee:

Based on a universal tithing tax what would the income of a national united church of America be? a sort of American Anglican clone with 1.7 trillion dollars in clout? :tea:

His pose is totally artificial and contrived - the used-car salesman approach: 'See? I'm President and I have my eyes closed...'

She's nearer to what I would expect of someone 'attempting' to indicate reverence in prayer.

Trump and the Republicans Are Redefining “Religious Freedom” to Favor Christians
When was "religious freedom" redefined to not favor Christians?
A rational skeptic should be able to discuss and debate anything, no matter how much they may personally disagree with that point of view. Discussing a subject is not agreeing with it, but understanding it.

Melanoma looks like she's just realised that she's still got another 10 or 15 years of marriage to that cunt.
