Evangelical approval of Trump remains high, but other religious groups are less supportive

“Fundamentalist Christian American missionaries must be stopped from this primitive urge to contact previously uncontacted tribes. It may lead to the martyrdom they seek, but it always ends up killing tribespeople.”

Perhaps not as much for "answers" as for "reasons".  Not just reasons why things happen, but reasons to do things.

Steven Pinker endorses FFRF in new TV ad to air on Colbert

In a new TV ad campaign, Enlightenment Now author Steven Pinker urges viewers to join the Freedom From Religion Foundation in its fight to prevent religion from creeping into the U.S. government. Pinker has served as FFRF’s first honorary president since 2013.

The ad will make its television debut on select stations during CBS’ “The Late Show with Steven Colbert” the week of Jan. 21. FFRF will also be running the ads on digital media outlets.

“The world has become a better place as reason has been overcoming superstition and tribalism. But the values of the Enlightenment are under attack,” says Pinker in the ad. “Please join me in supporting the Freedom From Religion Foundation to ensure that our government is driven not by religion, but by reason.”

well religion/tribalism was one of the earlier forms of social organization

it carried a lot of ideas and information, some beneficial and some obviously not

it has been replaced by politics, and like religion there's both good and bad ideas advanced

fortunately better communication has helped more and more people get exposure to better ideas/technology

Texas pastor who heads anti-LGBT hate group resigns after hiring prostitutes
Pastor Donnie Romero, of Fort Worth-based anti-LGBT hate group Stedfast Baptist Church, resigned from the church after admitting to “sins,” including hiring prostitutes, gambling and marijuana. Fellow anti-LGBT pastor Jonathan Shelley, with Pure Words Baptist Church in Houston, was quickly brought to Fort Worth and ordained Jan. 6 at Stedfast to replace him.

Romero came to widespread media attention in 2016 when he said that God should “finish the job” and kill the survivors of the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, a place that catered primarily to LGBT clientele. In a video Romero posted after the attack, in which 49 people were gunned down, he said, “These 50 sodomites were all perverts and pedophiles and they are the scum of the earth and the earth is a little better place now.” YouTube has since removed the video for violating its policy on hate speech.

Couldn't agree more, it is shame that lots of times people from all religions profess to support separation of church and state except when it comes to THEIR religion. {#Sad}
