5. That co-opting of a god character's perceived authority is part of this exact problem...

The idea that the US is supported by the deity of choice, that we are "blessed". And that others are not. It results in a reduced ability for self correction, and a simple way to foster divisiveness(those perceived as loved by god, and as a result, those perceived as unloved by god).
