Right now the right wing, has several dominionists running for president, what the hell is a dominionist you ask? Why these are the ultra right wing nut jobs who want to force their specific brand of crazy down your throat by making their version of Christianity law, from wiki:
-The goal is either a nation governed by Christians, or a nation governed by a conservative Christian understanding of biblical law-
I'm not talking about the the minor forcing that's being thrust upon us now, I'm talking about a convert or die kind of force. A force that's so behind the times that most people will write it off without really thinking. But remember, Perry has been elected to governor of Texas 3 times... They do have their backers and if everyone else is arguing about the other guys the ultra religious might have enough voters to get one of them elected.
A few more loving sentiments:
1. Dominionists celebrate Christian nationalism, in that they believe that the United States once was, and should once again be, a Christian nation. In this way, they deny the Enlightenment roots of American democracy.
2. Dominionists promote religious supremacy, insofar as they generally do not respect the equality of other religions, or even other versions of Christianity.
3. Dominionists endorse theocratic visions, insofar as they believe that the Ten Commandments, or "biblical law," should be the foundation of American law, and that the U.S. Constitution should be seen as a vehicle for implementing Biblical principles.
Once again the US was never a Christian Nation, sure some religious type moved here, but that doesn't mean the nation founded in 1776 was founded by Christians, it was founded by people who were pissed off at England. Most might have been Christians but they didn't fight England to be Christians, they fought because of tea and taxes;)
And I can't see religion as supreme to anything... morals being one of them. Forcing yourself on others is called rape. Forcing your religion on others might not be physical but it is mentally damaging. This is also the easiest way to start a civil war because this would do it for me. Sure everyone who didn't get on board could leave, BUT that would give the religious fanatices complete control over out Nuclear Weapons.... they'll get their revelations one way or another leaving them in charge of something like that is just delaying the inevitable.
Now instead of dicking around fighting all time it would be nice if the government actually, you know, did it's job. Compromise is what gets things done, not standoffs... Idiots. That's all I can stomach this week, oh there is that 'miracle' that happened were a Country Pop group didn't go on stage because they were praying so they didn't die when the stage collapsed... while 5 other people did. Praise Jesus! Ugh!
