So I won't do that. But I think you can guess my sentiments on the subject.
"The Republican Party knows that America's religionistas will believe anything they tell them as long as they pretend religiosity "
It seems that you believe that Donald and the Republican party are not playing fundamentalists and do truly believe in something other than their true God: money. My my, whatever gets you through the night my friend.

Allies? I did not realize we were choosing sides. Who pray tell are your "allies" or have you reached the goal of perfect wisdom and objectivity that we all wish we could achieve?
"Masks" ……. thinly disguised arrogance.
Oh FUCK ME ( I assume that was legal) here is the objectionable quote in it's full context for you to ponder:
A 2018 Pew Research Center study found that more than half of American adults (55%) say they pray daily, compared with 25% in Canada, 18% in Australia and 6% in Great Britain. (22% is the average in European countries)
It turns out that when it comes to their religious prayer habits, Americans are much more like people in poorer, developing 3rd world nations – including South Africa (52%), Bangladesh (57%) and Bolivia (56%) – than people in richer countries.
And even though America is a rich country, it has a much higher percentage of poor people than other rich people....AND America's rich people are much richer than the rich people in other rich countries.
AND the US is the only country out of 102 in the Pew study that has higher-than-average levels of both prayer and wealth. In every other country surveyed with a gross domestic product of more than $30,000 per person, fewer than 40% of adults say they pray every day.
The point is that religious people by definition routinely believe the unbelievable and conversely reject the believable due to their hopelessly gullible, dupable nature.
The Republican Party knows that America's religionistas will believe anything they tell them as long as they pretend religiosity.
And even if the Republican Party is flagrantly and repeatedly wrong, the religionistas don't care, because the Republicans pretend religiosity.
40% of America is thrilled to be a political-religious cult member or manipulator.
