catfish5 said"Dominionism derives from a small fringe sect called Christian Reconstructionism, founded by a Calvinist theologian named R. J. Rushdoony in the 1960s. Christian Reconstructionism openly advocates replacing American law with the strictures of the Old Testament, replete with the death penalty for homosexuality, abortion, and even apostasy."
OMG!!!!!!!! THE HORROR, THE HORROR!!!!!!
I agree, what's the big whoop with having the Christian version of Shariah?
The big 'whoop' is that when a politician gets this close to such outrageous and discriminatory beliefs that we need to work against then wholeheartedly. You make light of this obvious sign of extreme trailing to the fanatical right when if you take a look at history, everytime religion and politics/government untied the public suffered.
This dominionism is akin to the efforts of the likes of AIPAC, and which one of you can deny that they haven't infiltrated very successfully into government, media and business to very definately influence our US Government. Why do you think that most of the world has a saying about the US being in Israel's back pocket. So don't think for a minute that with concerted and constant efforts that these Christian fanatic types cannot gain prominence, because they can and they will if they keep at it and informed people don't take stands against it, look how far we've tacked to the right in just the last 20 or so years.
He who forgets history is condemned to repeat it, there are obvious signs of religion being increasingly mixed with government and we should not just sit back and say nothing.
SB, what better sign of Perry's leaning toward mixing religion and government than that he used the governors office even against advisors advice to promote his day of prayer, he even sent out invitiations to other governors. Do you need him to knock you on the head and tell you, 'hey, I don't see a thing wrong with mixing government and religious beliefs'.
