I'll bite. I'm assuming, based on following posts, that a fascist Christian is one who believes in the Bible regardless of what the current culture
tells them to believe.
If that is the case, then, yeah, I'm a fundamentalist fascist Christian. I believe the Bible is the Word of God, I believe it was divinely inspired,
and I believe, as the Bible says, that God allows our leaders to come to power to perform His will, though that will is very often far more long term
than anything we could fathom. (Example: Babylon conquering and holding Israel for over 100 years. Though Babylon spat in the face of God, God was
using them to refine Israel into the nation it would become.)
Does that mean I agree with our leaders? Nope, just as Elisha disagreed with Ahab's worship of Ba'al. But then that's not the question...
Would I ban the Stones because they sing a fairly Biblically accurate song from the viewpoint of the Devil? Nope. Would they? Yep, they would, after
someone got killed by the Hell's Angels during one of their concerts while singing it.
Would I judge you based on your music? Depends on what you mean by judge. Would I assume you're going to Hell? Nope. To quote the Bible, all
fall short of the glory of God, and our own hope of salvation it Christ. If I find something you listen to to be offensive, it may simply be that you
haven't found God in that way yet, or it may be that I'm the weaker God-follower as described (again) in the Bible who finds offense at what is not
So listen to your Stones. Enjoy. Heck, I'm not even a Cat Stevens demanding the death of Salmon Rushdie for writing the Satanic Verses. It is God's
right to judge a man's heart, not mine.
