No, subduing religious belief to hold public office goes against the bedrock principles of the Republic. The bill of rights specifically includes a bar to a religious test for office. Of course thanks to the campaign against Christianity by the judicial priesthood atheist sensitivities are more important than the plain wording of the Constitution.
The phrase 'good works' was not used. They were SPECIFICALLY called Christian acts, hence my comment.

Since some people do good works regardless of religious affiliation, they really shouldn't be called 'Christian Acts', but we all like to own the positive we each do, so the phrase, in general, doesn't bother me. It was the context it was being used it that was the point.

I wouldn't know what sensitivities an Atheist has, I'm not one.

maybe someone else said it but can you quote me if you think i said "christian acts" or anywhere where i said that the acts were exclusively, or only Christian.
I'm pretty sure i did not.
the point i made was that Christianity explicitly teaches Christians to be honest and kind to all people. I'm not talking about "random acts of kindness. but kindness cultivated and motivated by faith specifically. and set as a daily goal/standard.

Also BTW the very idea that "all men are created equal" and that "all people a created in the image of God" is in fact Biblical/Christian Idea. The Greeks and Romans didn't believe in equality of all mankind and many if not most other cultures never promoted the idea either. So yes, in the western world the concept of the of, loving all people universally, IS in fact a Christian idea clearly inferred and directly taught in the Bible and promoted by Jesus Christ specifically. so yeah Christianity does kind of 'own it' but is happy that the enlightenment people and others have picked up on it. even though , sense it's without it's original biblical foundation, it's become a bit warped, drifting off into love of animals and the "the earth" more than humans, and the idea never criticizing certain folks actions is really 'love'.

That is not true, you have no evidence whatsoever that Trump is a racist. In fact that's a dang lie.

Trump is no misogynist either, do you even know the definition of the word?
https://www.dictionary.com/browse/misogynist?s=t
Quote:

misogynist
noun
1. a person who hates, dislikes, mistrusts, or mistreats women.
As for Trump being a narcissist
https://www.dictionary.com/browse/narcissist?s=t
Quote:
narcissist
noun
1. a person who is overly self-involved, and often vain and selfish.
2. Psychoanalysis. a person who suffers from narcissism, deriving erotic gratification from admiration of his or her own physical or mental attributes.
Trump is definitely not selfish, all the hundreds of people he's helped over the years is testament to his generosity.
If an argument can be made that President Trump is a narcissist, then so is Barack Obama, FOR SURE.

It's not Salty's fault, she has been brain washed by the left to believe that all people that are white, and vote Republican, are racist, homophobic, bigots.

There doesn't have to be any proof, If one does something bad, we ALL do it.

It's just one of the many lies the left pounds into the mushy brains of liberals.

And they get great joy repeating those false narratives everyday.
