Donald Trump and His Angry Voters Are Furthering an Extremist Christian Agenda to replace democracy with theocracy by undermining our rights and protections from the bottom up

Unlike Muslim fundamentalists who use bullets, bombs and beheadings to enforce Sharia from the top down, Christian fundamentalists will not overthrow democracy in a military takeover that sweeps out one system (democracy) and replaces it with another (theocracy).
