I want to briefly expand one one point from Teacherken's diary on the growing problem of religious abuse in the military.

It is no small thing that Sally Quinn, doyenne of religion at The Washington Post, seems to have turned around on the problem of dominionism.

In a recent column at The Washington Post, where she is the founder and co-editor of On Faith online, Quinn zeroed in on rape and proselytization as the most series problems of divisiveness in the military. In the case of the latter, she highlights the problem of "dominionism."   If this signals a trend, it is a sea change at the paper, whose featured religion writer, Lisa Miller, a few years ago was a noted contributor to the Literature of Pooh Poohery about both the New Apostolic Reformation and dominionism.  

"'Dominionism'", Miller wrote at the time, "is the paranoid mot du jour."  

It is good to see all this getting fresh traction Inside the Beltway.  Let the debate that Miller et al sought to squelch -- begin now in earnest.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
