How about those ten commandments? It's easy to see how Der Dotard has broken half of them. With a bit of work, the tally could be higher.

For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.
The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
You destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest.
--Psalm 5:4-6

Ah, once again liberals using demonizing words for difference of opinion but every opinion they have is the only truth, and then canceling and trying to oppress everyone who doesn't agree. And, don't get me wrong, I've already stated many times how much I dislike organized religion. It's just funny to see liberals' only argument against it is "Uh uh, you are".

I never though any one person could give religious fundamentalists an even worse name, but Trump has managed it.

Trump implores evangelical Christians to vote in November

... The ex-leader, who rarely appears in church himself, has built a crucial base among the religious right, promising -- and delivering -- on some of their biggest priorities, including by appointing Supreme Court justices who helped overturn the federal right to abortion.

"The evangelicals and the Christians, they don't vote as much as they should," Trump told hundreds of supporters at a Washington conference put on by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a conservative advocacy group.

"They go to church every Sunday, but they don't vote," he said, adding in a half-joke that "in four years, you don't have to vote. Okay? In four years, don't vote. I don't care."

If elected, Trump would be ineligible to run for president again in 2028 because of term limits.

Evangelical voters were crucial for Trump's 2016 victory and again in his failed 2020 campaign, when 84 percent of white evangelical Protestants voted for him, according to the Pew Research Center.
