This Presidential Candidate is Only Slightly Worse Than the Current Republican Slate

Darrell Trigg wants to become the next president.

And just wait till you hear his platform for the Christian Party:

Separation of Church and State will be changed to the Union of Church and State. God will be asked to be an integral part of the government of the U.S.

The Bible will be a standard required subject in all public schools and universities, for all grades, the same as English and Math.

Each day of school will begin with prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Homosexuality will not be recognized legally, or in any other manner, by the United States government or any state, city, or county government.

The income of coaches of sports teams at universities will be limited to $300,000 per year .

Married couples who become pregnant must attend Christian parenting classes.

Well, I’m with him on the salary thing…

Strangely enough, he allows for certain exceptions when it comes to abortion and marijuana use — putting him to the left of many current conservative politicians.

He’s running as an independent, but I’d love to see someone like him make a serious run. He’d be like another Rick Santorum: so ridiculously religious that even other Christians would be too embarrassed to vote for him. And if we’re lucky, he’d drag down other conservative politicians in the process.

If we tried to parody a hard-core Christian running for office, it would be hard to top the real thing right here.
