Like it or not, deny it or not, there are signs point to the fact that there are Dominionist factions in the U.S.
And while it is their right to be whatever they want to be, say whatever they want to say, this is contrary to everything this country stands for, so
you can't blame people for watching for signs of it.
And you also can't deny that when this fringe makes "news" it doesn't affect the perceptions that others have of this nation. This is turn can
fuel other fires, such as propagating the perception that what we're doing in the Middle East is a crusade or a Christian war.
o When leaders slip and say things like Palin and Bush have said in the past
o When companies do things like put Christian scripture on guns our troops use
o When troops appear to be proselytizing in places like Iraq and Afghanistan
o When troops as in this story think they're being punished for skipping a Christian concert
(Troops: Skipping Christian concert got us punished
Can you blame people for being wary? Even if it's NOT a religious war, if people in the Middle East or who practice Islam think it is, does it

Military Likely to Continue Under Obama
