The WaPo is warning us about another Right Wing movement to go along with the fascism, and white nationalism:

“While most White conservative Christian churches might only touch on politics around election time and otherwise choose to keep the focus during worship on God, politics and religion are inseparable here. The Tennessee congregation is one of three Patriot Churches that formed in September. The other two are near Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., and in Spokane, Wash.”

“The Patriot Churches belong to what religion experts describe as a loosely organized Christian nationalist movement that has flourished under President Trump. … For many churchgoers in suburban Knoxville, the political boldness in worship is a breath of fresh air. They complain that social media restricts their free speech, and they fear government-mandated vaccines. And whether Trump wins or loses, religion experts believe these Americans are building powerful networks that are expected to endure long after Trump has left the White House.”

This is really bad news.

    The Dominionists. Bathed in the Blood of their beloved Sky Daddy’s Son, the Lamb who was sacrificed so that we could all go out and sin as much as want to, as long as we fess-up every Friday night, and are admonished to “Go, and sin no more,” before easing out the back door on the way to our favorite bar. Coz you got all day Saturday to sober up, have a couple of cold ones after mowin the lawn, and then it’s off to church on Sunday, with the fambly.

    You gotta admit, that’s a real nifty loophole they got there. So their reasoning is, even kidnapping, kangaroo trials, extralegal executions, are all forgivable sins, because they were committed in Gawd’s name, for the furtherance of “Hiz Werd,” and hiz preferences for our puny planet.

    And you can’t be denied visiting a minister, or priest, or whoever your chaplain happens to be, (except for the FSM, that’s kind of a problem still,) once you’re in prison.

    So they’re good to go; martyrdom/imprisonment on the one hand, Dominionist Theocracy if they win, on the other.

      No. Religious fanaticism is never acceptable.

        Getting them bound up in an argument about money could be a useful distraction and could be used to expose their devotion to non-religion activities, so, yeah, at least start with making them pay taxes. If that triggers a review of all the religions who want to have their first amendment rights and eat them too, so be it.
        Separation of church and state goes both ways, my friend.

        I totally agree. So much of what these “theocrats” do is really just lining their own pockets. They aren’t true believers- they are in it for the cash. But their followers- are positively rabid. Remove the tax exempt status- and then we will see who really believes.

        They will very quickly begin screaming “separation of church and state!!!”. I think most mega-churches I see have enormous US flags on their grounds.

  3. This religious fanaticism and mysticism is an integral part of the white supremacy and fascism.
