Mr. Marlowe did not reach the age of thirty. Perhaps that somewhat explains such an impulsive statement. One is entitled to one's opinion on religion, but it's surprising that a writer of his reputation would express it so ineloquently. Also, ignorant is where we all start.

Let's be optimistic for America and the world. We'll survive Trump, and in fact, he will serve as a wakeup call to get the citizens of the country with values not centered on greed, fear, and prejudice to take the country back and make it respectable again.

A disgusting person. An embarrassing page in U.S. history. Not the first, unfortunately, not the last.
