Darrell Trigg, an engineer from Rogersville, Tenn., presented his plat form at a National Day of Prayer event on Thursday, reports the Kingsport Times News.

Triggs goal would be to change the U.S. Constitution, eliminating “separation of church and state” and replacing that with “union of church and state.”

As President, he says the Bible would be a mandatory subject for K-12 students in public schools, marriage would be re-established as “Holy Matrimony” between a man and woman, gay marriage would be banned, and homosexuality “will not be recognized legally, or any other way.”

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

As president, Trigg says he would also make Christianity the official religion of the United States.
