    All things being equal, I'd prefer someone who was upfront about not being religious than somebody who put on a front about being a Christian.

    I think a big part of Trump's legacy will depend on how he leaves office. He has "joked" too many times about staying past the end of his term so if that plays out in an ugly manner, it'll obviously...
