    Let's set aside the Dominionists for a moment -- although we'll come back to them. What about the "Oath Keepers?" Religious proselytizing and cultism, along with separatism-devoted right wing religious mutation, is not confined to the bizarre flakes of the power-serving religious right. The "neo-pagan" movement has also been revived for an Aryanism. From Christian Identity and Naziism, they have their insistence on Scandinavian/Germanic faith, and then they have their posse comitatus (of the Germanic sort), and then we end up with too many people outside of the military and inside claiming to be ready to overthrow the "usurper."

    The Dominionists are a problem for the very same reason: they have instruction and aims that are at variance with the constitutional role of the armed forces. The traditional call to a Christian to place divine law above human and to face the consequences is supposed to be outside of the state. They want it to be done within the military.

    The fake terrorists. . . I suppose I should not say much, but any denomination that puts a premium on the conversion experience is susceptible to a theatricality, whereby the person who "converts" from the most dramatic "wickedness" is holiest, and therefore mountebanks and deceivers are welcome to claim to be recovered cannibal child abusing prostitute Satan worshippers. If they then use that to tell their audience that the laziest, most prejudicial thoughts are best, their reception will be all the greater.
