Will Trump get rid of separation of church and state?
I'm really afraid this is going to happen and all the hard work we have done will get flushed down the toilet.

America will no longer be a secular nation.

I'm not sure how much more I can take of this. Someone please...give me hope that there will still be an future for us atheists and secular communities.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime; give a man religion and he will die praying for a fish.

No, he won't be able to make good on any of his unconstitutional promises and that will only infuriate his followers more.

I hope that means they see him as a failure and stop supporting him and his ilk. But what if it emboldens them to vote for even more conservative candidates in the future so that they maintain a stronger control on congress? If they maintain enough control long enough, they could certainly start fucking with things like separation of church and state.

I think the very first things on their agenda:
- end Obamacare
- overturn Roe v. Wade (or make it damn near impossible to get a safe abortion)
- more tax breaks for corporations and BIG earners
- fund the fuck out of the military

-fund the fuck out of the military and invade Syria or Iraq again or something of that nature. They will put boots on the ground somewhere and send more Americans to die

5. Defund the fuck out of education and social services of any kind -- if you're not rich and white and healthy and Christian, fuck you.

6. Nuclear war (that's not on the agenda, but all it will take is for Herr Drumpf to be having a bad day).

RE: Will Trump get rid of separation of church and state?
I'd suggest that the tactic of cultural conversion is the most effective way to create long lasting change.

Example 1: Many of the people in my unit were apprehensive about allowing women into combat arms. We got our first in spite of their complaints. They weren't happy about it, but she proved herself reliable, dispelled their myths, and became accepted as an integral part of our unit. Now if someone were to try and revert the law to the way it was and have her kicked out, they'd raise hell and stand up for her even though they might not have even a year ago.

Example 2: I have a Syrian friend and recent immigrant who is paranoid of all the rednecks he's heard so much about. I have a bunch of redneck friends who are paranoid about all the perceived terrorists flooding through the borders. I take my Syrian friend to the range, meet the redneck friends there, and we all spend a day blowing shit up and having fun rather than focusing on our stereotypes. Everyone walks away just a little more enlightened.

Trump's at least areligious if not an outright atheist. Does that help?

Exactly, keep people stupid, keep them believing the earth is 6000 years old.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

There really isn't any proof though. I mean, he even said this is a Christian nation!

Apparently he never said God Bless America which is odd.
