When I was young, a friend had an ugly wart on his arm. His grandmother was from the old country, where they practiced voo-doo.

She sent him to multiple treatments to a voo-doo priest, who was gonna 'wish it away'.

It all failed and she beat him for not having faith.

Most of the founding fathers were deists

And Abraham Lincoln ,admired the world over, and who many consider, was probably our greatest president/leader was essentially an Agnostic, I think.

I suspect some right-wingers distrusted this poll as a ruse to undermine Trump so they avoided it. We probably have never had as Godless a POTUS as him.

Twitter polls are just a smidgen more reliable than Rasmussen.

#2 Most smart people will avoid the hockum of religion. The truly deceitful will use it as a means to manipulate the truly stupid. Fat Nixons current side squeeze and spiritual advisor Paula White just told her congregation to skip paying their utilities so they could send the money to her.

Why does Fat Nixon surround himself with criminals?

FTA:
The National Association of Christian Lawmakers was started last year by Arkansas State Sen. Jason Rapert (R), who warned about the rise of witches in a recruitment email. It's not clear how many members the group has, but its board of advisers includes a number of current and former elected officials, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
""

Yeah, America's problem is too many witches and devils. What wack jobs. This National Association of Christian Lawmakers is exactly why Dana Carvey's "Church Lady" character was created on SNL. Only the association is serious.

It's funny (yet sad) that Trump has religious convictions like those of many of the founding fathers, i.e., he can take them or leave them. Washington and Jefferson attended services only once or twice annually. Alexander Hamilton knew his bible well, but it didn't stop him from taking up with married women or talking smack about others, and look where it got him...

Persecution?

Not hearing what you want to hear is persecution?

All supernatural explanations for natural phenomena are hokum. There is no GOD or DEVIL or GHOSTS and GOBLINS. EVOLUTION IS true.

The elves are dressed in leather
And the angels are in chains
(Christmas with the Devil)
The sugar plums are rancid
And the stockings are in flames
(Christmas with the Devil)
There's a demon in my belly
And a gremlin in my brain
There's someone up the chimney hole
And Satan is his name
--"Christmas with The Devil", Spinal Tap

Dems and liberal commies can call Pres Trump GODLESS, but evangelicals and truly religious types know better. Liberals lie. Pres Trump advocates for the religious. Especially the Christians being persecuted around the world. Especially for the Jewish community being attacked by the ant-semetics. Especially for the million voiceless babies each and every year being exterminated by the lying leftist women murderers. Especially for the churches and their pastors, priests, rabbis, and leaders who Dems hate and demean every chance they get.

The President of USA, Donald Trump, has done MORE for the religious people of the USA. The President of USA, Donald Trump, has done MORE for the workers of the USA than those before him. The President of USA, Donald Trump, has done MORE for the businesses, entrepreneurs and employers of the USA than those before him. The President of USA, Donald Trump, has done MORE for the allies of the USA than those before him. The President of USA, Donald Trump, has done MORE for the minorities and LEGAL immigrants of the USA than those before him. The President of USA, Donald Trump, has done MORE for the people of the USA than those before him.

Reelect Pres Donald J Trump in 2020, or watch this nation become a communist nation in decay!

#9 Religion is a tool created by the criminal corrupt to manipulate and control the extremely stupid.

A baby is born....it is one of God's miracles.

A baby gets cancer and dies.... it is part of God's plan.

As opposed to what, a dictatorship? Or perhaps a theocracy, if the Mike Pence's of the world get their way? Trust me, that vast majority of Trump's so-called Christian supporters, who are also so adamant in their defense of Israeli, are only doing so based on a perverse belief that Israel must remain in existence so that when the 'Rapture' arrives, it can be destroyed so as to make way for the 'Second Coming'. The problem is that these people are not willing to wait for these events to transpire a God's pace, they think that they can help make it happen. Their real goal is to create the environment where Israel is indeed destroyed, by whatever means necessary, so as to force God to keep his promise. They are perverse and dangerous, not only to us, but to the entire world. They see international strife and even plagues (Corona-virus anyone) as part of God's plan, only they would like to think that they can move it along a bit quicker. Note that Trump is not a least bit interested in the beliefs of these religious radicals, he's just using them as means to an end, that is to make him and his family richer and perhaps even to launch a dynasty of sorts so as to assure that this will remain so. Trump is the con man he's always been, he's just conning the people who think that he's an instrument of their plan for ending the world on their terms. Unfortunately, they may be right, just not in the sense that they believe him to be.

Anyone who claims to speak for a Gawd is doing so for their own personal gain, or they should seek mental evaluation immediately.

That is all.

Good job, Lamplighter! Almost had me fooled for a little while! But I see what you're doing with your commie this and evangelical that. For a minute I thought you really were a ball-washing, brain-dead Trump acolyte. But you went a little overboard, and plus, everybody knows about your trademark "Pres Trump" ... abbreviated, no period ... so the cat is out of the bag. We know it's you!

Nicely done, though.
