2. Something I wonder about all the time is the current movement to 'none' for religion

I think Trump is only a continuation of the move away from organized religions as those religions cuddle up tighter and tighter with the republican party. In the past 2 decades the facade of having mutual interests has been exposed over and over and over.

Religions desire for power and money has been exposed by their openly figuratively fornicating with the easily discernible politicians like Gingrich, Hastert, McConnell, many lesser clowns plus the likes of the entire Bush family, Cruz, Huckabee, Bachmann, Pence on and on.

Trump is just the most ostensible hypocrite of the batch. With the internet around to easily find and highlight the selling of the souls on one side for power and money and the hypocrisy on the other it is easy for people to see they are being taken for a ride by oligarchs that are laughing at them.

The internet has also allowed for open discussion and meeting with others who have doubts. Also aids in finding out that a person is not the only one with doubts.

So I would say the hypocrisy raises a stink that folks investigate on the internet to find out they are not alone and leaving religion is not the end of their world.
