    The movement seems to have become much bolder.  I see any number of people that seem to accept the logic that if your religion calls on you to serve as a politician, then the normal rules don't apply to you.  "You can't tell me what to do, only Jesus does; and Jesus says it is right and proper to establish God on our coinage, to erect crosses as official war memorials, to force your children to listen to our prayers every day.  Are you a heathen?"

    Keep up the information flow, dogemperor.

    We're all just monkeys burning in hell.

    •  The *public* face is bolder, you mean (10+ / 0-)

      In private, in the Wednesday-night and "revival" and longterm-member early morning meetings and especially in the cell-church groups, they've been stating this to their own members as long as I can remember.

      The big sea change is that they no longer seem to even be taking pains to have the "private face" and the "public face", and have been letting much more of their Freudian slip showing as of late (as they see themselves in power).

      I will state this for the record--I hope to whatever Gods there may be that this finally shuts up those people who have claimed that we walkaways who have witnessed this for years have been "making shit up" and "exaggerating" about dominionists.

      This is a regional head of the Assemblies of God, the second largest dominionist denomination in the US, possibly the largest in the world, and the denomination with the earliest documented history of dominionism of any church saying this.  In public.  On a national television program.  He is most assuredly doing this with the full blessing and support of his denomination, too.

      THIS and worse is what they've been telling their own for ages and ages now, folks.  THIS is why we cannot let them win.  (Their ultimate plan for those who won't be "named and claimed" is rather similar to Paul Cameron's plan for LGBT people--kill 'em all, once they can get the chance and get the laws to back 'em up.)
