Thank you Chas. It is also why I don’t worry about whoever gets into power generally. All the blah-blah talk that goes on during campaigning or giving speeches and what not, amounts to fluff UNLESS there are laws and constitutional changes that affect the critical secularism of the USA.
That’s why the white house press secretary spoke up when he did. Such a rare event for that. But Trump was treading on _very_ wrong ground there when he crossed that line the other day. He can still sorta get away with it because he’s campaigning but if by some weird reason he became president (I doubt he’ll make the republican nomination process although I’m ready to be surprised), the checks + balances system, the laws, the constitution, would necessarily prevent that from happening.
Not that it’s _impossible_ for the US to become a theocracy but I find it very unlikely. We’ve survived with our secularism for THIS long.
Of course, I could be way off base as well. tongue emoticon
