Bottom line is--thanks to the GOP--Donald Trump is shamelessly cashing in on the fears of innocent, brain-washed minds that have been fed lies of economic decline and betrayal for a long time. That is as reprehensible as all the hostility and brutishness he has personally incited.

Are quotations from a religious book really enough to indict an entire religion? With this in mind, listed here is a mix of verses from the Quran and the Bible. Is it obvious which book is the mother lode of bad ideas and which one is the religion of peace?
