Backward, Christian soldiers.

This article should clarify exactly who and what the real threat to democracy is. It should also make clear, for those who care about America, where and against who they should be combining their efforts to push back. The mess George W. Bush has made of the economy, privacy laws, wars, ecology.....on every yardstick one can think of , is just a small taste of what's to come should they succeed in turning America into a theocracy.And have no doubts about it. That is what they intent is, and so far they have been overwhelmingly successful. Gary Williams ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Backward, Christian Soldiers By ROBYN E. BLUMNER, Times Perspective Columnist Published November 14, 2004 excerpt: "What we are experiencing is the rise of Dominion Theology. This ideology says Christians must begin to take over all secular institutions of government, reclaiming them for Jesus Christ. It is seen as a readying for the Second Coming. See for more information. "Our aim is to gain dominion over society," Pat Robertson told a gathering in 1984. He later described how this would be accomplished: By gaining a working control of the Republican Party.And they've succeeded.In 2004, 41 out of 51 Republican senators were given 100 percent ratings by the Christian Coalition for their votes on behalf of fundamentalist issues. Meanwhile, 31 out of 48 Democrats scored zero. Similar splits can be found in the House, where Minority Leader Tom DeLay expressly uses dominionist language. During a "Worldview Weekend" conference in 2002, he said: "(God) is using me, all the time, everywhere, to stand up for a biblical worldview in everything that I do." continued........ --
