Indoctrinated into the public school system I was told the people who founded this country were people religiously persecuted who fled to these soils to escape that. And, after they did escape that, they made it a rule: The state would never impose religion again. Ever. Or discriminate against religion. Of any kind. The end.
This year a man ran for president, was in the running for president saying he thinks the Constitution should be rewritten in the words, enforced in the words, of his religion.
That man did not win his party’s support. He got shoved aside. Not popular enough. He just did not rate cheerleader status.
Now his ugly brother is running.
And his ugly sister.
They say the same thing. Just with different words.
