“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me.

I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.” – Barry Goldwater

Because Trump knows how to draw in Christian support. And we know religious Christians fantasize about the return of Jesus Christ.

And you relish the thought of all those evil humans dying a bloody death and burning in hell for eternity. It is one fucked up pile of horse shit, and I truly pity those who have been programmed from birth to believe it with all their heart, sad sad wastes of human potential all.
