I am a Japanese Catholic. Looking from outside, people in USA look deceived by what may be an evil method. The gov’t putting out 9 religious values, but promoting 1 or a few religious values that look very appealing to the mass. So, the people throw in more support for the gov’t for a temporal up-boost of popularity for them to stay in power or the people yield moral concession for 9 immoral agendas of the gov’t. So in a few decades, the gov’t pushes more and more of the immoral agendas and soon people will feel apathetic or even laugh when good willed politicians try to promote or bring back the religious values again. I don’t like to see or argue politics on this forum. But I have comments about Mr.Trump as well. I believe his presidency proliferated racism and hatred, cold treatments of immigrants, and brought USA (and the world) closer to a war. Didn’t he order death of a foreign commander without gaining full and clear consent within the gov’t? And subsequently told the public proudly he did it? I recently heard the USA gov’t was canceling an anti-mine treaty that more than 100 nations had signed. Mines are terrible war weapons that will kill and decapitate civilians. Also other thing like sacrificing the American native’s holy land for a sake of oil. There are probably many more that I don’t know. So, I believe he is corrupting the nation’s morality. Do away 9 religious principle, but support one or a few popular religious principles to appear nice and good. Soon, the gov’t will reconsider these ones as well. Thanking the Lord for Mr.Trump’s presidency for his actions is difficult for me to understand.
*I won’t be able to reply if a comment is too American politics. Also, due to my English proficiency I may not be able to answer well and often. Sorry in advance.
