Years of well laid plans have been exposed and the primary suspect are rural churches operating under the first amendment protection, operating as a monolith.


Are you talking about rural American holy-roller churches? Because yes, the Dominionists are REAL, and Pence is one, and so is DeVos, and likewise Sessions......

so are Perry and Carson.

So. What are you meaning with that sentence above? Whose "well laid plans" are now exposed, and why is there a "primary suspect?"

The Dominionists are every bit as dangerous as ISIS.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is in talks with President Donald Trump’s administration about taking an ambassadorship position, according to sources close to the governor.

No offer has been extended yet, according to The Star’s sources, but the governor has discussed the possibility of taking a position as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations for food and agriculture, a position that would move the Midwestern governor to Rome.

It has been rumored since November that Brownback, who is close with Vice President Mike Pence, could land a job in the Trump administration, but the governor has been tight-lipped about his prospects.

Kansas Public Radio reported Wednesday afternoon that Brownback was poised to be named ambassador, citing an unnamed source who called it a “done deal.”

Pence is on the door step, if not fully through the door.

Really? How many homosexuals have been flung off the ramparts of American churches lately? Adulterers or rape victims stoned at the Sunday picnic? How many protestant American women have had their genitals mutilated? How many of these churches force their women to wear a wool blanket with an air hole cut in it over their faces? How many take children into their beds with the blessing of their holy texts?

None you say? I call your conclusion BS, Buzzy.

Oh GOD! Not this again.

It's like an echo, echo, echo, echo - - - as "they" have to revert to a foreign ancient culture - - to try to create a valid point.

And trying to make American churches innocent in their treatment of homosexuals - - to boot.

Can't grab the air.

In other words Dominionists are all right as long as they aren't ISIS.

Written by an "educated liberal" on how it is wrong for "white (heartland) Americans" to look out for their own interests.
More grasping for straws. More generalizations. More of the same... Yawn.

It's always nice to have somebody volunteer to step up and confirm the central thesis. Thanks to you and all those who star you.


I would like to offer an article as a counter-point to your premise, it's a very entertaining "Brief History of the Redneck":


takimag.com...



Absolutely delightful! Thank you SO much.

I'm not the one who pulled a "fundamentalist Christianity" and ISIS comparison out of my ass, Annee. I replied to the ridiculousness of the comparison.

Sounds like you have beef that should be taken up with the person who made the comparison, not the person who was pointing out the error of the comparison and trying to correct an errant lyrics foolish comparison.

The issue is not the degree but the history and the potential. Sure the Dominionists might not be "cutting heads off" or "throwing gays off the rooftops" NOW, but historically Fundamentalists have been mistreating them in the past and they have the potential to be more like ISIS. Fundamental Christians such as Jerry Falwell have been calling for gay people to be thrown in jail or to receive the death penalty. We've seen that recently.
