Jesus Uber Alles
21st century swastika
Saw an alarming article that shows how badly our friends the "Dominionists" want to turn us all into drooling Jeezoids like themselves. A few of the more rabid fuckheads among them have this to say:
D. James Kennedy, founder, Coral Ridge Ministries: "Our job is to reclaim America for Christ, whatever the cost.....as the vice regents of God, we are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government, our literature and arts, our sports arenas, our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors--in short, over every aspect and institution of human society."
Gary Cass, executive director, Reclaiming America: "The most humble Christian is more qualified for office than the best-educated pagan."
Richard Land, lobbyist, Southern Baptist Convention, on John Lennon's "Imagine": "A secular anthem [that envisions a future of] clone plantations, child sacrifice, legalized polygamy and hard-core porn." (Huh?)
And as if those wackos aren't dangerous enough, now we have Russell Johnson and Bill Lavely of the Ohio Restoration Project who are pissed at the usual suspects (abortionists, evolutionists, homos, "secularists" who have "hijacked our culture", judges "who think they are smarter than God", and American universities, "the arteries of spiritual toxic waste") and are reaching out to the faithful to create "Patriot Pastors" across the state who "will pray, inform, and equip the Christian community to be engaged in the 2006 elections." They will also be called upon to:
"Preach and inform (brainwash) their congregations on issues relevant to the Christian Community."
"Help build (demand) a network of addresses and e-mails that will equip concerned Christians to become informed 'Minutemen' of our day."
"Host (require) nonpartisan (???) voter registration drives in their churches."
"Include (issue) Voter Guides and inserts provided from Christian Coalition, American Family Association, and Center For Moral Clarity."
"Mobilize (coerce) voter participation through transportation for the elderly, childcare for young families, congregational prayer meetings for elections, praying for those candidates requesting prayer, being involved and engaged as 'salt and light' within the culture."
"Encourage (pressure) their church families to participate in Pastor Policy Briefings and regional 'God and Country Rallies' where the issues of the day are underscored and highlighted and the Judeo-Christian ethic is affirmed."
Seems like a hell of a lot of work to be doing out there in Ohio when they can just fuck with the machines like they did last year.
