21. It's not even about religion. It's a political tool

for RW control of society. Who could think that people like Trump and Empty Greene really believe what they spout about God, country and the American flag? (They prefer the Confederate or Nazi flag with Trump's ugly mug on it.)

Even the religious ones like Mike Johnson are more interested in the political power of using religion than in any spirituality.

Their attempts to force religion will fail. It will make even people who were not hostile to religion become hostile and rebel.

As Timothy Snyder says about tyranny, don't comply with it. Don't go along with decrees when they are first issued just to not make waves. Refuse to comply with tyrannical decrees right from the start.
