Pence, Pompeo, trump, dominionism

It's a sad fact of life that republicanism, though definitionally not religious, is in political manifestation almost identical to dominionism. The love of money above all else lends itself to the same methods of exploitation as does the belief that Jesus is coming to forgive all sins and clean up everything, anyway. Pence, Pompeo, trump... the first two believe that they're doing the commanded work, no matter the means, and the latter just wants the means, no matter what.

Sorry, folks... but we need to start teaching our children that certain notions are supreme nonsense and that they're killing us.

2. Exactly this.

It's like watching real life Gilead forming. I keep thinking about the book where she is talking about how, they did nothing when Congress was assassinated.
They have a plan. That's why they are so cocky.

4. Do not turn your back on dominions.

This topic got my mind going, religious nut jobs are not to be taken lightly. Muslims have Sharia, dominionism has Charia. Jut saying.

5 Facts About Dominionism
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/5-facts-about-dominionism_n_945601?ncid=engmodushpmg00000004

The term “Dominionism” was popularized in the 1990s by scholars and journalists, who applied it to conservative Christians seeking political power. It derives from the Book of Genesis, in which God tells Adam and Eve to have “dominion” over the Earth and its animals. “Dominionism” generally describes the belief that Christians are biblically mandated to control all earthly institutions until the second coming of Jesus.

Experts identify two main schools of Dominionism: Christian Reconstructionists, who believe biblical law, including stoning as punishment for adultery and other transgressions, should replace secular law; and the New Apostolic Reformation, which advocates for Christians to “reclaim the seven mountains of culture”: government, religion, media, family, business, education, and arts and entertainment.

Have a look at this page for and eye opener.

Now I wonder if dominionism and fascism go hand and hand or, are they two separate beliefs?
