Tennessee Presidential Hopeful Running On Platform Of Reuniting Church And State: VIDEO

Darrell Trigg

Darrell Trigg of Tennessee has deeply-founded moral and religious convictions, and if elected president in 2016 he would have them enshrined into law. He would hope to abolish the separation of church and state and usher in new laws such as:

  • Mandatory Bible lessons for K-12 public school students
  • Ending legal recognition of homosexuality and removing gays from television
  • Banning nudity from the internet
  • Capping executive salaries at $300K
  • Raising the drinking age to 25

So, American Sharia law, but with less stonings. It's unclear to whom Trigg is attempting to appeal with his Christian Party platform as a great many of his goals hold no appeal for either liberals or conservatives, and raising the legal drinking age by 4 years isn't going to win many converts among the young voter demographic. Perhaps he's trusting God to pull him through, but he really hasn't got a prayer.
