I'm not kidding. This is real. This is getting scary! I quote from their link:
Are you worried yet? No? Religious fundamentalists you have heard of are saying this stuff. Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson are supporting it. They're mentioned in this next link. Try this from Americans United:
"Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a holy responsibility to reclaim the land [of all the states in the United States] for Jesus Christ--to have dominion in the civil structures, just as in every other aspect of life and godliness.
But it is dominion that we are after. Not just a voice.
It is dominion we are after. Not just influence.
It is dominion we are after. Not just equal time.
It is dominion we are after.
World conquest. That's what Christ has commissioned us to accomplish."
Well, there's one fanatic organization we can collect taxes from! For more on the rabid (and removed from his post) Rev Frank Pavone look here. This is the same priest that claimed to be representing Terri Schiavo's parents when he told AP that the U.S. was committing an "atrocity".
"The Rev. Frank Pavone, head of Priests for Life, declared that no one who is pro-choice is fit to hold public office in America. Even though his group is tax exempt, Pavone promised it would influence the outcome of the November races.
'Of course I’m trying to influence the election!” Pavone said. “This is what it means to be an American.'"
Still not enough? How about Christian Coalition field director, Bill Thomson, saying the "leftist" foes should be destroyed:
"You're going to run over them. Get around them, run over the top of them, destroy them - whatever you need to do so that God's word is the word that is being practiced in Congress, town halls and state legislatures. That's your job."
The U.S. belief in personal freedom has been underestimated by many. A Christian Theocracy (their term) should be made aware that they will be seen or dealt with no differently than:
- King George in 1776
- Kaiser Wilhelm
- Hitler and his Nazis
- the U.S.S.R.'s communism
- the Afghan Taliban
- Saddam Hussein
If a Christian Theocracy (their words) is allowed to establish itself, we could see Mount Rushmore dynamited in 20-40 years, like the Buddhist figures were in the Taliban's Afghanistan (it's idolatry, you know). Do we want to go there?
Wake up! Through apathy, we can allow these crazies to destroy our way of life. They are talking about repealing the U.S. Constitution. Do I sound like an alarmist? I hope I'm wrong. Check the links, do your own research ... but do something!
