Tennessee-based Darrell Trigg has announced his candidacy in the 2016 US Presidential elections, and revealed several anti-gay manifesto points.

Trigg, speaking at a National Day of Prayer event on Thursday, told a crowd of 100 that if elected he would work to end ‘legal recognition’ of homosexuality.

He will run as an independent, but claims to represent a ‘Christian party’.

Trigg says that if elected he will re-establish marriage as “Holy Matrimony” between a man and woman, and that homosexuality “will not be recognized legally, or any other way”.

He will also ban “any form of homosexuality” from the internet and television, alongside pornography, nudity, excessive violence, foul language and blasphemy.

He also told the crowd he would raise the drinking age to 25, amend the constitution to end the separation of church and state, and establish ‘The Bible’ as a school subject at every level of education alongside English and Maths.

He said: “Proverbs 9-10 tells us the fear of God is the beginning of all wisdom.

“I’m a little ashamed to say, but a lot of our nation’s leaders have forgot what the fear of God is all about.”

“I know this campaign will bring honor and glory to God, help turn this nation back to Christian principles, and lead millions to a personal relationship with Him.”

Earlier this week, conservative Glenn Beck said that if Hillary Clinton wins the Presidential election, she would have lesbian sex in the Oval Office.

He said: “I’m telling you, Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk.”
