I'm sorry, but come on!!

Everywhere I look, there seems to be evidence that our religious communities and organizations have taken it upon themselves to make the US a "Godly" country.....
From Tom DeLay's scandel to obtain more seats for the republicans in the Seanate to the stupid laws that have been brought up in the congress in the past four years....like H. R. 3799....

I know, we've probably all seen this before....but it's still in committee, waiting.....

I found this article today, it's an old article but well a few things it said we rather new to me.

Pin Heads

According to Dominionist literature, "biblical rule" means execution -- preferably by stoning -- of homosexuals and other "revelers in licentiousness"; massive tax cuts for the rich (because "wealth is a mark of God's favor"); the elimination of government programs to alleviate poverty and sickness (because these depend on "confiscation of wealth"); and enslavement for debtors. No legal challenges to "God's order" will be allowed. And because this order is divinely ordained, the "elect" can use any means necessary to establish it, including deception, subversion, even violence. As Robertson himself adjures the faithful: "Zealous men force their way in."

------------------------------------

I"m particularly interested in the phrase:

"enslavement for debtors"

Ya see, I've had dreams about that since I was a kind....a small girl with blank, expressionless eyes behind barbed wire.....
In one dream, I was with a friend, and we watching as they brought in all these slaves to an internment camp.....the girl was there, and well, I went in and put the chains on myself just to be near her......don't ask me why, when I woke up, I was more concerned why in heck my friend who was with me went ahead and just followed me. Surprisingly, our friendship kind of declined some after that, I think subconsciously, I was afraid that this might actually happen, and well, considering that, I chose to distance myself from her.

well, this is the reason why I get on the corporations, and those that believe that it's okay to pay the less fortunate so much less than the cost of living while enjoying those six or seven figure incomes. We are enslaving half the population of this country....
social services can easily be adapted into a slave system, and well, the idea of making slave of those who can't pay their debts seems to be the norm in the history books.....It's even involved in my family history. My ancestors migrated from Germany (and the catholic church) to England, but then after a time England decided they didn't want them, lent them the money to pay for the transportation here, where they became indentured servants to the king working in a hemp farm. Well the conditions were so bad that the servants began to protest and revolt to the point where they were more of a pain than they were worth.....so they were freed.

I think it's coming back, they seem to even be setting the laws up to help it be established.

So you have found proof of a "Christian Agenda" to kill all us sinners and take over the country?

Maybe I am just not up on my legal speak But I seen nothing in the bill that said anything about turning us into a Godly country and the "Moscow Times" might be the most creditable paper to read about American politics, do you have a link with a little more creditibilty than that?

I have no doubt there are a lot of people, some even on this board who would be drooling at the mouth at this chance to stone all those uppity homos and put the rest of us sinners in our place.

But all in all till I see a little more proof I think its just about as creditible as Gradys "Homosexual Manifisto" and my White/Black Agenda" in other words .....NONE

I went to that site and found nothing bunch of fundy fanitics. The only mention of it that I saw was a post like this one. If these two links are all you have for evidence I personally dont give it much credit.

For example, mine and Gradys threads offered more proof than this and BOTH were utter BS


Even the bill you pasted on did not mention ANY of the things you said. I have no doubt that there are a few kooks out there, again like those in the other two threads, but I dont think 1 out of a thousand Christians would vote for a Bill to kill gays or enslave anyone

Doesn't surprise me about DeMint. He's a freaking loon. He thinks gay people and straight pregnant women should be banned from being school teachers. He's running the Bush campaign on a more local scale, drumming up discrimination to win the votes of the closed-minded in this area. It's a pretty pathetic tactic, and what's worse -- he'll probably win.

that just means the supreme court cant use its power to file lawsuits, or fire someone, or whatever against someone who give "acknowledgement of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government." its protecting the 1st amendment.

Theocratic Dominionism--taking back all the ethnic cleansing and stoning to death that was practiced under the old Law Covenant--prior to Jesus--is making a comeback among people who are scared to death of God;

who picture God as a hateful old sorcerer who tortures people.

Those people truly need our pity and our prayers; they are sick sick sick.

And if you think you and I are powerless against them--

wait a minute.

Remember the scripture, "Judge not, lest ye receive back the judgment you give" ??

Well, Theocratic Dominionists are standing in line ready to judge us all.

Let's just not go there, but let Karma, circumstances, God or Nature deal with those folks.

A little Faith will go a long way.

Peace.
