What if Trump made a religion?
Does anyone doubt there wouldn’t at least be a few thousand people willing to convert?
And then once the Church of Trump becomes an established religion with thousands of followers, a temple, and its own holy book with Trump as the Last Last True Prophet then based on the “Terms of Service” of social media companies no one would be allowed to criticize Trump and his followers ever again in our digital townhalls!
You’ll be labeled “Trumphobic!” Banned. End of rational discussion.
Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
What about indirectly attack? ;)
It wouldn’t matter if Trump became a pedophile by consummating a polygamous marriage with a 9-year-old girl, owned sex slaves, robbed caravans, killed enemies, advocated for the death penalty of apostates/gays/adulterers, encouraged beating “arrogant” wives, cursed hair extensions/alcohol/tattoos/music, proclaimed a woman’s opinion one-half a man’s in financial transactions, wedded his daughter to his first cousin, promised for martyrdom 72 “transparent” virgins and “beautiful” young boys, made countless verifiably false statements about science (flat Earth is on the back of a whale), which his followers conveniently write-off as a “metaphor” or he’s a “product of his times,” which is a slap in the face to anyone who genuinely believes Trump is “perfect.”
You either endorse EVERYTHING the perfect man did or you must acknowledge he wasn’t perfect and therefore you’re no longer in fact a follower of the faith. You should have the courage to live by your convictions or the courage to acknowledge they’re wrong.
In a rational world, we would denounce anyone who believed such a human was the closest thing to perfection.
But in our world, you can take a ridiculous and perverted ideology and sprinkle a little God on top, and all of a sudden “POOF!” it’s exempt from criticism.

I, however, believe ALL ideologies regardless of whether they invoke a God or not should be subject to criticism because as somebody who believes in free speech it is my only weapon to stop the propagation of bad beliefs and behaviors that will undoubtedly make our interconnected world worse.
Peace be upon Trump.
