Christian Fascism

Facism is back in vogue, and the Bush Administration is tossing the word aound now about Islamist fundamentalists, which is probably a good coupling.

But it brought to mind another story from the other day where Congress woman Kathrine Harris said:
"that separation of church and state is "a lie" and God and the nation's founding fathers did not intend the country be "a nation of secular laws."

"If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin"

Isn't this a form of "Christian Facism"?

I mean if, according to her view (and the GOP's by proxy), that God is the ONLY rule to govern by, wouldn't anyone who had a differing faith be screwed?

Facism is in the dictionary is defines as:

noun, a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.
If the Christian Conservative GOP got their group prayer answered (see here) then wouldn't they then make the US a fascist Christian state with "only laws deemed just by God"? I gotta ask, what would Jesus do?

Maybe the GOP's plan is to just fight fire with fire, the Christian fascist state fighting the Islamic Fascist state. Viva la diferance'

Bush's Gift Horse has Hoof in Mouth, again!

Hello Greg and all,

This gets to the root of the problem of deluded and greedy politicians who seek to impose their own ignorance on millions of others. Because of our reliance on money, politics, and religion, we are teetering on the verge of worldwide disaster. Idiots like Ms. Harris couldn't care less about everyone else as long as they get their hands on wealth and power, even if it means pretending to serve the Creator. It is long past time that people stand up for truth and justice and give these scoundrels their due.

P.S. Greg,

You won't like some of what I have to say about mysticism, but don't take it personally. I hope you appreciate the chance to finally have the answers to many ancient mysteries long obscured from people like us...

Peace...

Does BE DONE ON EARTH represent Christian Fascist thinkig?
The original title,The Secret of the Second Coming: A Postmodern Paradigm for the Resurrection of a Moribund Religion, was changed to Be Done on Earth when the publisher objected that it sounded too much like a title they already had in production. While the original title was long, cumbersome, and sounded more than a bit pretentious, Be Done on Earth is short and to the point, and has the inestimable advantage of being allusive. But that short title misses the book's postmodernism, which is not to be missed if one is to appreciate the book’s quiddity.
Mixing genres with postmodern abandon Be Done on Earth starts off like a novel, calls itself an "encyclical," begins with an "Introduction" four chapters long that develops into an interview, before launching into a "manifesto" with an "abstract" like a physics paper, then launches into a series of chapters that swing between formal philosophical discourse, social criticism, gospel critique, and ominous prophecy.
Be Done on Earth takes a radical view of the current plight of human procreation and proposes that a deeper philosophical reading of Luke plus the Jesus dictum "Suffer little children to come unto me" offers scriptural justification for the church to take on the role of a "real mother-father of real children."
Be Done on Earth (ISBN 1-4241-2558-8) is available from Barnes & Noble and from Amazon.
