    Should Trump, widely worshiped as the Son of God by pockets of southern white evangelicals, be considered God, like his at-least-half-brother Jesus is?
    Many of Trump's detractors assert that Trump is an atheist, and verily, it is hard to impute a lot of religious devotion to someone who sees no deficiency, no trait that is less than divine, in himself.
    But perhaps Trump gets a pass here as a "not-an-atheist", or even the honored title of "religious extremist", so fervently does he believe himself to be God?

    This is a matter in urgent need of resolution, as many of us would prefer not to have an atheist in the white house, while almost all of us would prefer someone who is not a religious extremist.

    A christian god doesn't worship any higher being. So Trumpo could be atheist and god too.

    Religion does not equal god-belief. Yes, he is a religious extremist. No, he doesn't appear to believe in any god, and whatever god(s) he might believe in has nothing to do with his religious extremism.

    GOP and Trump supporters will not be able to say they didn't know. Vote in numbers too big to manipulate.

    June 14, year of Our Lord 1946. Late in the day.
    Mary Anne Trump: What have you done to it? What have you done to its eyes?
    Doctor in Hooded Cloak: He has his father's eyes.
    Mary Anne: What are you talking about? Fred's eyes are normal! What have you done to him? You maniacs!!
    Doctor: Satan is his father, not Fred. He came up from hell and begat a son of mortal woman -- you, Mary Anne. Satan is his father and his name is Donald. He shall overthrow the mighty and lay waste to their temples. He shall devastate the FBI, the federal judiciary, the State Department, the Justice Department, the news media, the moral foundation of the country, the stars of nudie films, and all manner of public discourse. He shall redeem the despised and wreak vengeance in the name of the burned and the tortured. Hail, Donald! Hail, Satan!!!
