Trump Administration takes the first steps towards implementing theocracy in America

scarygothicchurch

This is terrifying and all too real. Yes, it’s true — the Trump GOP wants to replace democracy with a Christian theocracy.  But only “their” kind of Christianity is acceptable. It’s happening much faster than I would have expected.  Gilead really is happening in America. These dominionist evangelicals are zealots who will stop at absolutely nothing to implement their theocracy.   They will not compromise because they believe God is on their side and they have a “mandate” to force their religious dogma into law.   Nothing is too evil or cruel if it furthers God’s mandate.  The ends always justify the means.

It looks like LGBTQ people and women will be the next victims of this regime.

Empathy and humanity are not only not required, they are considered bad or even evil  because they get in the way of carrying out the mandates they believe God has given them.   That Jeff Sessions, Mike Pence, Erik Prince (Betsy DeVos’ murder-for-hire brother), Jim Jordan, Roy Moore, Franklin Graham, Paula White, Sarah Sanders, and many other sociopaths and sycophants within the Trump regime and its unholy orbit are self proclaimed “anointed apostles” favored by God tells you everything you need to know about this dangerous, totalitarian, and anti-life cult.

Their insistence on “religious freedom” doesn’t mean the same thing it did back when our leaders still respected democracy and the rule of law.    Back in the day, it meant the freedom to worship (or not) as you chose.   But Sessions and the far right dominionist evangelicals have redefined it  — “religious freedom” now means both the “freedom” to inflict your religious beliefs on others, the “freedom” to discriminate against the “Other,” and it also gives you, the oppressed victim of theocracy, the “freedom” to not sin (because sinning will eventually become criminalized).

These dominionists must be stopped — somehow — before there is no longer a such thing as “separation of church and state” and we turn into a Christian Saudi Arabia (of course, these “Christians” care nothing about anything Christ actually taught).

The MSM spends no time at all covering this, but it’s a very serious problem that will soon completely alter what it’s like to live in this country — and NOT for the better.

I wish this was fake news.  But it’s not.

Scary times.

We must ALL vote in the midterm elections in November.  Nothing but a straight Democratic ticket will do.   We MUST oust the Republican Congress and Senate to get rid of the one party rule we have right now under Trump.

These Christo-fascists scare me much, much more than the rather disorganized white supremacists and Koch-funded greedy oligarchs.  Of all the different factions of Trump’s GOP, the dominionists frighten me the most and I also think they are the most dangerous.

Of course, they would say that my “resistance” and “negativity” just means I’m being influenced by Satan to be disobedient and I probably have a “jezebel spirit.”    They don’t like people who think for themselves.  They don’t like “uppity women.” They don’t like people who prefer real freedom instead of the fake “freedom” they’re trying to shove down our throats.  They prefer mindless sheep and robotic Stepford-people.

I really don’t care, do u?

The Secular Jurist

By Robert A. Vella

The very first amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as part of the Bill of Rights ratified in 1791, states that:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

This separation of church and state was intended and repeatedly affirmed to ensure two things for the new nation:  1) that the United States government would be formally secular, and 2) that United States citizens could legally practice their various religions freely and without interference from other religions.  In a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802, President Thomas Jefferson wrote:

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes…

    It is very scary indeed! It is like we are living in the Handmaid’s Tale on steroids. The levels that this administration has sunk to, has given me extreme anxiety, I will be voting Blue in November for sure.

      I will be voting Blue too (keep checking your registration — the GOP is doing purges of D voters) but honestly, I don’t have high hopes. I feel like it’s too late and we just better hunker down for the long haul — as bad as it may be –or leave the country if you have the means to do so. (I don’t). I would like to see most people stay and fight this out though. I haven’t given up yet!

      I don’t know….I don’t think we have that much time left. Even November is pushing it. They are working fast and are driven. They also have power and money on their side. I think we MUST win midterms, or it’s too late.

        Let’s hope that what happened in Alabama wasn’t a fluke. Can you imagine a Democrat winning in Alabama ? I think minorities have woken up , and will vote in full force. That’s what happened in Alabama .

        Eh, I’m just being positive.

    The Republican interpretation of “Religious Freedom” in on a par with “Black is white and freedom is slavery” – utterly Orwellian.

    I could never have voted for Trump and will not vote for those of his reactionary party. But neither could I have voted for Clinton or DNC-type Democrats who are in bed with the war machine and Wall Street. Any genuine progressive on the ballot will, on the other hand, get my vote. On the theocracy issue, I support the right of a woman to control her body and am also supportive of gay marriage. BUT, put yourself in the shoes of a principled, conservative Christian who honestly believes that abortion is tantamount to infanticide, or that traditional marriage is a sacrament ordained by God. When I do this shoe switching, I begin to get a handle on where such people are coming from…and while that handle may feel wrong from my perspective, it does not feel evil. Which is not to say, of course, that there are not a substantial number of people who oppose abortion and gay marriage because of misogyny and homophobia.

    Much of the church in Nazi Germany altered their beliefs to match that of the Nazi party.

    It is happening also here.

    The idea of death-camps I raved about two years ago sounds a bit less far-fetched now, given the behavior of ICE.

    We will not see ‘the handmaid’s tale. We will see L’amerika’s *witches* – as these dominionists name themselves as Christian, but in truth, practice *Satanism* – and *that* is how *hell arises, and Brimstone rules.*

    Addendum to the above: the mere fact that these all-encompassing dominionists worship Drumpf as God, put his will above all things, and elevate his every word to the status of Holy Writ should tell you where their hearts lie.

    There is but one good thing in this evil: the nature of Dominion is exposed as manifestly Satanic, just as their Leader is.
