Darrell Trigg on Wednesday launched a
bid for the White House, promising supporters that under his
presidency gays “will not be recognized legally, or any other way.”
According to the Times
News, Tigg discussed his vision for American during a
National Day of Prayer event on Thursday held in Rogersville,
He told a crowd of roughly 100 people
that if elected president of the United States in 2016, he would work
to change the U.S. Constitution to end the separation of church
state, make Christianity the nation's official religion and make
Bible lessons a requirement for students attending public schools.
At his campaign website, Tigg also
pledges to overhaul marriage laws to exclude gay couples and raise
the legal age to 22.
“Divorce will only be allowed in
cases of abuse, infidelity or incarceration,” the platform states.
“No show or movie will be allowed on
T.V. systems or computer systems accessible by homes that contain
nudity, strong sexual content, excessive foul language, blasphemy or
any form of homosexuality,” Trigg's
platform also states.
