The Washington Post mindset: “The president has spoken of his defense of “Judeo-Christian values,” while evangelical Christians like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Pence have emerged as some of the most powerful and long-serving officials in the administration. But what can be harder to spot is when religion stops being symbolic and actually influences real U.S. policy.”
For the WP mindset religion can only be permissible as a symbol. Do they not realise that  if they drain our civilization of what it has derived from its Judaeo-Christian identity, we will be doomed to a world in which life will be very nasty, brutish and short. An now there is talk of Leviathan Bezos buying the Daily Telegraph! The horror, the horror.

How Trump’s foreign policy mixes religion with money
(Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post)
It’s hardly a secret that the Trump administration embraces religion. The president has spoken of his defense of “Judeo-Christian values,” while evangelical Christians like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Pence have emerged as some of the most powerful and long-serving officials in the administration. But what can be harder to spot is when religion stops being symbolic and actually influences real U.S. policy.
A new investigation from ProPublica takes a hard look at exactly that. And, like the Ukraine scandal that prompted impeachment proceedings against President Trump, what ProPublica uncovered involves the alleged misuse of U.S. foreign aid. Although in this instance the motive for a White House intervention appears religious rather than political in nature, the two cases are more similar than they first appear.
