Richard “Darrell” Trigg, of Rogersville, TN, was arrested outside of his ex-wife’s home on January 11 and charged with telephone harassment and criminal trespassing. He was reportedly sitting in his parked car, waiting for his wife to come outside when police were called.

Trigg is a long-shot Presidential candidate running for the “Christian Party.” Trigg promised that he would end the separation of church and state and make Christianity the United States’s official religion if elected president.

From the TimesNews:

Under Trigg’s presidency the Bible will be a mandatory subject for K-12 students in public schools.

Marriage will be re-established as “Holy Matrimony” between a man and woman, gay marriage will be banned, and homosexuality “will not be recognized legally, or any other way.”

Adultery will be punishable by jail time and large fines.

Nudity will be banned from the Internet and television, as well as excessive violence, foul language, blasphemy, or any form of homosexuality.

Trigg’s ex-wife filed two private protection warrants against Trigg in 2012. However, both were dropped after local prosecutors decided not to pursue the case against Trigg. After his arrest on January 11, Trigg spent about thirty minutes in jail.

His presidential promises also included more populist and left-leaning policies like an expanded education budget, higher teacher salaries, and a salary cap of $300,000 for executives in publicly traded companies.

Trigg is only listed on the ballot in his home state Tennessee, although he has until August to file for nation-wide ballot recognition.

    Nearly all of the things you claim happens to be astonishingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light before. This article truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this subject goes. But at this time there is just one issue I am not necessarily too comfy with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core theme of the position, permit me see what all the rest of the subscribers have to say.Well done.
