Probably ban Christianity and demand tithing to the Church of Donald.

Sorry. Tired. Depressed. A bit too much ethanol in the gas tank. = a bit rude.

Still.

Trump plays Xians. He isn't one. I'm leery of stating that, but he's evinced nothing that says he cares. Like my mother or brother--baptized Catholic--neither showed any evidence of faith. Ever. And did I say "ever"? Bro went to church once or twice per year--Xmas/Easter--until SIL went Episcopal. Then ... "zzzz". My SIL was baptized Catholic and went Episcopalian, and in the recent schism stayed true to what she believed. With a net worth of maybe $2.3M, leaving $1M in cash to her parish hurt. (Note that $3M of that was inherited--she was an asst. bank manager who died of breast cancer, her husband was a machinist/stay-at-home-dad, do prior to inheritance they struggled--he honored her bequest, not that he had much choice. No churchiness since then. 5 years?)

Obama had his own theology. That was a bit of a problem. Perhaps he was true in his belief. Perhaps not. I can't say or judge.

Biden's a great Catholic. Except that he's gone against the catechism more than once. Then again, I've gone against my "catechism" (I'll dub them 'fundamentals of belief' in revised derivative secondary Protestant fashion).

Trump? He has no theology, unless we assume his nickname is "Theo." He has the theology and ideology of a honey badger.
