Ted Cruz & Dominionism

“Dominionists believe they are engaged in an epic battle against the forces of Satan. They live in a binary world of black and white. They feel they are victims, surrounded by sinister groups bent on their destruction. They have anointed themselves as agents of God who alone know God’s will. They sanctify their rage. This rage lies at the center of the ideology. It leaves them sputtering inanities about Barack Obama, his corporate-sponsored health care reform bill, his alleged mandated suicide counseling or “death panels” for seniors under the bill, his supposed secret alliance with radical Muslims, and “creeping socialism.” They see the government bureaucracy as being controlled by “secular humanists” who want to destroy the family and make war against the purity of their belief system. They seek total cultural and political domination.

All ideological, theological and political debates with the radical Christian right are useless. It cares nothing for rational thought and discussion. Its adherents are using the space within the open society to destroy the open society itself. Our naive attempts to placate a movement bent on our destruction, to prove to it that we too have “values,” only strengthen its supposed legitimacy and increase our own weakness.

Dominionists have to operate, for now, in what they see as the contaminated environment of the secular, liberal state. They work with the rest of us only because they must. Given enough power — and they are working hard to get it — any such cooperation will vanish. They are no different from the vanguard described by Lenin or the Islamic terrorists who shaved off their beards, adopted Western dress and watched pay-for-view pornography in their hotel rooms the night before hijacking a plane for a suicide attack. The elect alone, like the Grand Inquisitor, are sanctioned to know the truth. And in the pursuit of their truth they have no moral constraints.”

  1. ted cruz is a false christian in every sense of the word…and anyone who votes for that war mongering, false christian deserves the miserable lives they are living…that is why they are voting for teddy

  2. Is it always wrong to be happy and celebratory when someone dies? When Justice Antonin Scalia died yesterday, my mind and heart felt relief and release, the kind of relief and release one would feel if Hitler, Stalin, or Chairman Mao had just died. I really do see people like Ted Cruz and Antonin Scalia inhabiting positions somewhere within the bounds of the Hitler-Stalin-Mao Spectrum. When I heard about Scalia yesterday, it was like the feeling prisoners must have when they are released from bondage. It was sunny in my town when word came, and it seemed as if everything and everyone in the world was breathing easier and feeling safer. If this were spring, I could honestly say that the butterflies were more charming, the greens were brighter, the waters ran clearer, and the sky was a happier shade of blue.

    If you disagree, then tell me why it is always wrong to be happy when a profoundly evil person dies.

  3. Should I dare to comment? If I didn’t, what would that say about my own convictions, right? Or should I use the word “right” when there are those who, even when they condemn judgmentalism, would judge me evil, even profoundly so, because I see things from a different political and governmental perspective? I see what was written in the above comments and my jaw hangs open, amazed at the venom and hatred espoused by those who condemn others for a lack of love.

    In the body of the above post I read where “All ideological, theological and political debates with the radical Christian right are useless.” Has anyone ever tried discussing issues with one on the radical left? what about a theological discussion that encompasses aspects outside of a “social gospel?” And that makes me think, what America is the left wanting to preserve when all it talks about is fundamentally changing it?

    What frustrates me is that those on the far left – even the middle left, the middle, and some of the middle right – assume anyone with a non-ecumenical, non-pluralistic Christian worldview is for theocratic rule and ideological domination. Just in case you were never taught, the majority of our founding fathers who crafted the nation in which we live were more conservative Christians than many today, and they wanted nothing to do with a Theocracy – they are the very ones who crafted this Republic!

    So, even though presidents and justices like Obama and Ginsberg have forced their ideological beliefs upon the consciences of others as much or more than the left claims those anywhere on the right desire to do, there will be no feelings of spring, more charming butterflies, brighter greens, clearer water, or bluer skies around here. “Have I ever rejoiced when disaster struck my enemies, or become excited when harm came their way? No, I have never sinned by cursing anyone or by asking for revenge” (Job 31:29-30 NLT). “Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth” (Proverbs 24:17). It wouldn’t be the “Christian” thing to do.
