“If we are going to have one nation under God — which we must — we have to have one religion,” Flynn said in San Antonio at a stop for the far-right “ReAwaken America” tour. “One nation under God, and one religion under God.”
Such a vision is completely contrary to the Constitution’s guarantee of freedom of religion, and the separation of church and state.
Ohio state treasurer and Senate candidate Josh Mandel (R) tweeted: “We stand with General Flynn.”
The ReAwaken America tour features Flynn and other Trump allies, such as Roger Stone and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell. It also highlights anti-vaccine doctors ― including controversial Stella Immanuel, who believes that some medical conditions are caused by demonic sperm when “demons” have sex with humans in their dreams.
Flynn — who was pardoned early this year by Trump after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI — has made several jaw-dropping comments in the past.
In July, when he was gifted a new AR-15-style rifle at a church, he said: “Maybe I’ll find somebody in Washington.”
In September he was worried about COVID-19 vaccines being added to salad dressing.
But critics appeared especially appalled at his latest position.
Retired Gen. Mark Hertling called Flynn an “embarrassment to the U.S. Army,” and his words “disgusting.”
