    I'm fairly sure that if religion wasn't a factor, the kind of people who'd do this would find another reason to do it instead.

    Okay, so they kill each other over disputes about who has it right about their shared imaginary friend.
    Again, it's not "a" religion, it's RELIGIONS.
    The ability and willingness to indulge in hate and hateful acts over imaginary friends is not an aberration, it is the norm and has been for millennia.
    So tell me about the religious significance of the shootings in Las Vegas, Sandyhook, Florida.

    Hatred is hatred, whether it is between religious groups, or against non religious people —or against all religious people.

    He does realize that Trump's "common purpose" is to fuck over anyone of any race for the betterment of Trump?

    Well, it would still be a peaceful transfer of power. It would just be a peaceful transfer of power which includes a bunch of chickenhawks making tough sounding tweets that they won't back up.

    Is that a good reason to keep the existing enabling system in place?

    What a shitty thing to say. The problem here has nothing to do with religion in particular and everything to do with right-wing xenophobic fascism, enabled and enlivened by social media personalities with nothing to offer except hatred.
