God needs political protection?

President Trump has pushed through a record number of ultraconservative federal judges with the help of the Republican Senate, most of whom where vetted by the conservative Federalist Society, a nonprofit group of conservative lawyers.

Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. has stated he does not believe that it is hypocritical to choose a president on his policies instead of his morals, referring to evangelical leaders endorsing President Trump for president.

Conservative religious groups – because of the record number of conservative judges along with the endorsement of evangelical leaders that morals are no longer a requirement – are now emboldened to challenge the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution, which does not allow our government to prefer one religion over another. The case is called the Bladensberg Cross case.

Is the god of Christian conservatives such a weak god that he needs to be protected by law?
