Holy cow. Trump’s tax bill is bad enough for the average person who isn’t a corporation or a billionaire, as well as threatening the ACA (by removing the individual mandate), but look what else is hidden inside it.
Every American needs to be aware of this. There’s all kinds of horrible things (many which I’m sure I’m not even aware of) hidden inside the tax bill, but this is probably the most dangerous and scary thing I’ve heard yet. The plan, if this bill passes, is to remove any remaining separation between church and state, allowing a free and uncontrolled flow of dark money between the evangelical right wing churches and the government.
I wonder if many of the Senators who are going to be voting on this bill are even aware of this hidden clause. The GOP seems to do just about everything in secrecy and darkness, without transparency (typical of authoritarian regimes).
The intent is to establish a “state religion” (remaking America as a “Christian nation”), which will result in the marginalization (and maybe worse) of anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their brand of toxic Christianity, which has nothing to do with actual Christianity and is really a political movement disguised as “Christianity.”
This is straight up authoritarianism & a great danger to democracy. These evangelical Christofascists are using Trump to carry out their wishes, and it’s all about money and power. I wish this was just fake news, but I can tell you with confidence that this is real.
If you’re not freaking out about this, you’re either not paying attention or are part of the problem. We cannot allow this to happen. We are not Saudi Arabia.
Call your senators. They may not be aware what they are about to vote for.
