74. Trump supporters would vote for Adolph Hitler for president if they could

I said this before and I'll say it again until they forcibly shut me up. America is the breeding ground for fascists and the major factor in causing this is religion. We live in a society that is dominated by religion. It is the only institution that you may not criticize yet has a choke hold on its billions of followers for their "salvation." It is authoritarian and totalitarian. Are we forgetting how the Vatican made Hitler's and Mussolini's rise to power possible in 1930s Europe? And how it colluded with the Protestant Fundies to create the death squads that tortured and killed millions? It has caused our society to hate intellectual activities to the point that we have become virtually illiterate and know nothing of history. It's aim is keep its subjects as its servants and prevent progress at all costs even if that means violent suppression. It has robbed our democracy of hundreds of billions of dollars (some even estimate trillions). When are we going to wise up and abolish its tax exemption and enforce the prohibition of its political activity. It is the most significant factor holding us back from confronting and coping with our major social, political and environmental problems today.
