This #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired by a LinkedIn meme that used Trump's bible signing side hustle in this way as a lame side swipe at religion. The religion is the One God's revealed message and the prophet's example in walking it out for our instruction. In the case of Christianity, in it's purest form, it would be the Christ's example in walking it out. Everything that came after the Christ, i.e., the two thousand plus years of extra stuff, bureaucratic priest craft and even the writings of Paul of Tarsus, are not the religion. The religion itself remains pure, you just have to work to find it, wading through all the stuff built up in the way, and it's all of that stuff that gives the religion its bad name since very few people understand enough to discern the religion of God from the in-the-way of mankind.
