This is why religion makes me angry and sad.

We have the religious tied up with our government trying to force this country into a mini-theocracy:

The Other Reason Trump Hasn’t Fired Scott Pruitt: His Evangelical Christian Ties

Rebekah Mercer, the billionaire GOP megadonor and financier of anti-abortion groups, Christian colleges and climate change denial think tanks, bankrolled the confab, according to the brochure.

Brent Bozell, founder of the right-wing Media Research Center, opened the program as the master of ceremonies before Pruitt gave his roughly four-minute speech in acceptance of an award for “human dignity leadership.” The Rev. Thomas Joseph White, a professor at the Catholic Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, followed him with an invocation.


If these people could just stop believing in fairy tales and start just loving their fellow humans things would be so much better. But, no, their religion is just a tribal identifier and causes the "us vs. them" mentality they further by promoting their version of reality over everyone else's.

1. He wants to hasten the end times

But how f’ed up is your life If you want to the world to end? Are these evangelicals so miserable that they want to die to meet a God who might not be a sure thing.

4. Not to mention, their God is one angry SOB.

 

I read the Old Testament. Their God is a sociopath.
