That explains why his order on religion in politics is so much less antiAmerican than the draft leaked three months ago. Remember, though, that whoever wrote that draft is still working for Trump.
And filling the empty spaces in his head with ideas like this:
You laugh, but there are millions and millions of Christians who imagine they are being persecuted. Recall the undying alarm in the churches about the imaginary government move to suppress religious broadcasting.“For too long, the federal government has used the power of the state as a weapon against people of faith, bullying and even punishing Americans for following their religious beliefs. You are now in a position where you can say what you want to say.”
As a relic of my days as a newspaper book reviewer, I get constant offers of strange books. Some are very strange. Last week, I got this pitch:
In a daring new political thriller, lawyer and author Richard T. Dolezal imagines a world where people of faith must strive to take their country back. In The Fourth Vow, a chance discovery gives the Catholic Church irrefutable proof that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is executing a decades-long strategy to destroy Christianity in America. Pope John Paul II retains famed trial lawyer Carson Elliott to confront the ACLU. The ACLU responds by having Elliott killed. And so it begins.
“And look at society today. It is quite easy to observe how vulgar, uncaring, coarse, rude and sexually-explicit our culture has become, and how unpatriotic and poorly informed some people are," Dolezal says. "Those of us who have lived awhile can remember a better society. In my book, I suggest that an ‘incremental evil’ has slowly insinuated itself into our daily discourse and dulled our senses to its ugliness. Where are the Christians pushing back?”
In the Rose Garden.
Need it be said that you have to be stone crazy to imagine the ACLU as a hit squad?
