Dominionist Christianity in the U.S. in 2018 - 18} "There are two main expressions of Dominionism, each influential far beyond their foundational thinkers. Briefly, Christian Reconstructionism, founded by the late theologian R.J. Rushdoony (1916-2001) advances the idea that
Christians must not only dominate society, but institute and enforce Old Testament biblical law. Unlike the doctrines developed within specific denominations, Christian Reconstructionism has been a movement of ideas that transcends denominations and has influenced far more people
than those who ever adopted the label. Thread by @Opinionrupter: "Thread How Dominionism Was Spread. Part 1. A Covert Religious Political Theocracy, Under Many Names, is Hidden in Plain Sight. 1} 2} 3} If a […]" #CitizensUnited #democracy #IllegitimateRegime #DarkMoney
20} One of the movement’s main contributions has been to provide a biblical rationale for political action for the Christian Right and a theory of government and public policy development." politicalresearch.org/2016/08/18/dom… … 21} thnx @azquotes
22} Journalist Frederick Clarkson, who has written extensively on the subject, warned in 1994 that Dominionism “seeks to replace democracy with a theocratic elite that would govern by imposing their interpretation of ‘Biblical Law.’” He described the ulterior motive of
23} Dominionism is to eliminate “…labor unions, civil rights laws, and public schools.” Clarkson then describes the creation of new classes of citizens: “Women would be generally relegated to hearth and home. Insufficiently Christian men would be denied citizenship, perhaps
24} executed. So severe is this theocracy that it would extend capital punishment [to] blasphemy, heresy, adultery, and homosexuality.”
Joan Bokaer,the Director of Theocracy Watch, “In March 1986,I was on a speaking tour in Iowa &received a copy of the following memo;
25} [Pat] Robertson had distributed to the Iowa Republican County Caucus titled,

“How to Participate in a Political Party.” It read:

“Rule the world for God.

“Give the impression that you are there to work for the party, not push an ideology.

“Hide your strength.
26} “Don’t flaunt your Christianity.
“Christians need to take leadership positions. Party officers control political parties and so it is very important that mature Christians have a majority of leadership positions whenever possible, God willing.”

If you think there is 'no connection between The Dominionist Theocratic Movement in the U.S. in 2018, Trump/Russia, the American billionaire Funders of Trump (Mercers/Kochs) you would be sadly mistaken.
Throughout human history, many exceedingly greedy and power-hungry men have FOUND RELIGION QUITE A CONVENIENT TOOL --- TO GAIN PERSONAL ADVANTAGE AND WEALTH. Things are no different in the Year 2018.
