Does America (or anyone really) need a "More Violent Christianity", as per Coach Daubenmire, the far-right religious/political lobbyist showering heaps of praise upon Donald Trump for shoving the Head of State of a fellow NATO member out of the way for a photo-op, since this is, per Daubenmire, showing Americans how to "Walk in Power", being "Large and in Charge", and participating in the "More Violent Christianity" America ostensibly needs. But is anyone at all worried when calls for a dogmatic new Dark Ages are re-energized by our current government?

We Christians have reached ISIL-like levels of bloodshed before:

We Americans are historically just as susceptible to Milgram-Experiment-esque betrayals of our principles, even domestically, for example our shameful history of Eugenics which we invented and bankrolled - and lobbied into Nazi Germany, not the other way around.

So maybe more shocking than the suggestion of America subscribing to Religious Extremism (coming during the reign of a president with more bigoted rhetoric than the 3rd Reich, and a fiscal policy that boils down to economically mediated undercover Eugenics) is the lack of outrage from US Citizens.
US Citizens with our magnificent Constitution and a Nation "Founded on the principle that All Men are Created Equal" "With Liberty and Justice for All" (not All except for the elderly, disabled, ill, poor, non-Christian, non-straight, non-white, etc).

So, are you.... Horrified? Concerned? Disinterested? Ok with the unconstitutional call to Extremism? or Hailing Daubenmire & Trump (Constitution? what Constitution??)?

Well apparently all prayers to their supposed God(s) have failed, so we are left with those far more capable to do what the various God(s) can't / failed to do, despite the promises made in e.g. John 14:12-14 bible Story book!

It is categorically false that the current president resorts to "more bigoted rhetoric than the 3rd Reich". It's a flat out lie.

The cries of an impending new Dark Age, and other doomsday epitaphs, can't be taken seriously.

No, it would be against what Jesus taught. I really hope Christians, if they really are disciples of Jesus, listen to Jesus and don"t become violent.
