Silver Lining - God Bless America
I've put this in the Atheism and Theism section in the hope that we can have a chat about the future of/for religion in the US for the next 4 years.

They / you have a creationist VP but...

An atheist POTUS

Evidence:
No god-fearing politician (or even a politically savvy one) would forget the obligatory "God Bless America" at the end of their acceptance speech.

I put it to you, ladles and gentlespoons, that Donny J Trump is neither god-fearing nor politically savvy.

Go to 15:40




He ended with "I love this country".

(Perhaps it was one syllable too long and he was referring to Mr. Pence?)

I'm looking forward to what will be in his inauguration speech.

No doubt the speech writer will add in those three words but the dozy fucker goes off script so much I wouldn't be surprised if he forgets.

So, the wider question ... he is obviously a non-believer (faking it to get the evangelical vote) ... in which case, how will that work out with a VP who is going to push prayer and creationism in schools and whatnot?

Will Trump continue to play along, or will his self-importance and bluntness get the better of him?

Consider

He doesn't care about religion, he cares about Trump.

That same party flipped out when Obama took his private oath without a bible, he ended up re doing it because of superstitious morons who don't understand the Constitution does not require that.

I could give a shit less if Trump were an atheist, he is as bad to me as Che. I'd rather have Hillary or Bernie or Obama swearing on a bible because they wouldn't fuck over America like the GOP has for 36 years.

That does seem to be his #1 priority.

Reagan did this song and dance, he used the code words of the religious right, but he never pushed an overtly religious agenda.

The religious right is not as powerful as it was in the 80's and Trump has a case of Idontgiveafuckitis for religion.

Bernie when asked a out faith or god always spun the question to him saying he has great hope and belief in humanity... never really touched on a direct type of answer.

Trumps spins were always I love the bible or Its his favorite book he sleeps beside nightly.

But it's like being accepting Stalin was atheist, but basically wanted the devotion to exist to his state and power instead

If Trump is anything he's a Pagan. He may believe in a god. But it's his own.

And that for most of the religious community is fine with them. Their to gullible to know other wise.

However if it turn out he was an Atheist (highly doubtful) and it came out that he was one. It could be very detrimental to any people that would want to try so in the futher that we're open atheists. Not only would the counter position wave their fingers and say "SEE! SEE! EVIL! Atheist = evil." His side would blow their fucking brains out. All that they held so close to their hearts about him would be counter acted with we never agreed with him.
