Tennessee man running for president, forming the 'Christian Party' [View all]

ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Darrell Trigg is running for president and forming his own political party, the Christian Party.

The first point of his campaign platform is to do away with separation of church and state and make it union of church and state instead. This means, among other things, the official religion of the United States will be Christianity.

He wants to make the Bible a standard required subject in all public schools and universities, for all grades. Every day of school will be started with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Trigg wants to increase the legal drinking age to 25 and ban alcohol on college campuses.

He also says if he becomes president, "homosexuality will not be recognized legally, or in any other manner, by the United States government or any state, city, or county government." This would also include a restriction in the rating system for TV shows to ban any show or movie that contains homosexuality, among other stricter restrictions.

Another point would deal with marriage. Trigg wants to define marriage as a union of one man with one woman and increase the legal age of marriage to 22-years-old. Any couple wishing to get married would have to attend Christian marriage counseling. If a couple were to get pregnant, they also would have to attend Christian parenting classes. There would also be "large fines and jail time" for anyone guilty of abuse or infidelity.

Now, if one is a Christian and doesn't agree with him, does that make him or you the 'not a true Christian'?
