The majority, I think, support Donald Trump.

As I have said before, Donald Trump never ran for the office of minister-in-chief.

And fundamentalists, I believe, would be quite consistent in supporting Donald Trump, as he has generally supported the issues that are important to them--including (but not limited to) opposition to abortion-on-demand, and support for the state of Israel.

By the way, your suggestion that fundamentalists are especially judgmental is not one that I have found to be at all accurate.

The adverb, "nefariously," is an opinion--not a proven fact.

By the way, the Pledge of Allegiance has undergone several changes--not just this one--since its inception.

Oh, one other thing: Abraham Lincoln, in the Gettysburg Address (in 1863) spoke of one nation "under God." Do you find this offensive, also?
