    The “liberty” part in “religious liberty” is not intended to empower the believers of a dominant religion, such as, say, Christianity, to give them the “liberty” to impose their beliefs upon everyone else. No. This is a perversion of the term “religious liberty.”

    Instead, the “liberty” part is intended to protect minority NON-believers to ensure that they have the liberty to maintain their own independent beliefs without suffering any disadvantages imposed upon them by the dominant believers

    Just think again: Democrats - read, Dixiecrats - were doing it for years before the GOP cottoned onto it. Either way, it's a perversion of Xtianity matched only by John Calvin's predestination nonsense.

    Let's not forget about the Rushdoony clan who fled to the U.S. from Ottoman Armenia. This family used their "ancient Christian heritage" to influence future leaders in the GOP. R.J. Rushdoony was a descendant of a very long line of aristocratic priests that went back over 2000 years.

    The Dixiecrats were members of the States' Rights Democratic Party, which splintered from the Democratic Party in 1948.

    The faction consisted of malcontented southern delegates to the Democratic Party who protested the insertion of a civil rights plank in the party platform and U.S. president Harry S. Truman's advocacy of that plank. Before the convention southern delegates were dismayed by Truman's 1948 executive order to desegregate the armed forces. With that backdrop many southern delegates were already concerned as they headed to the 1948 Democratic convention.

    ...Many former Dixiecrat supporters eventually became Republicans

    South Carolina governor (Republican) Strom Thurmond speaks at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July 1948. Thurmond would head the Dixiecrat ticket opposing the Democrats shortly after the convention ended.

    Rushdoony had huge influence with the GOP, and he helps explain the appeal of Trump today.

    Rushdoony's family came to the US to escape the Armenian genocide yet he spent his adult life denying the Jewish Holocaust.

    Rushdoony preached against racial integration in all forms, in schools and marriage.

    Rushdoony guided the Christian Right to the hateful group that it is today.
