Nightmare Fuel: Scary Political Christianity
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Amongst the many crackpots Rick Perry has associated himself with, Pam Olsen, is the co-chair of his Florida Presidency 5 leadership team.
I just… this person actually has a platform and a mic?!?
She also ‘preaches’ Seven Mountains Dominionism, and believes in raising the dead.
I always thought that an easy theological concept to grasp for Christianity was that there was a fairly significant shift in relationship between humankind and God that occured when Jesus did his thing. But person’s such as the above? It’s like they got stuck somewhere in Judges and still live in fear of the angry sky-god who will strike you down if you don’t placate him properly.
But why do Christians like this scare me? First, they are extremely ignorant. They lack the basic categories to understand natural phenomena. Why do the clouds cry? Why does the earth rumble like my tummy? Mad-God must be shaking the Earth!
Second, can you imagine someone this ignorant actually taking over the seven mountains of culture and running the government? This sort of person has no moral compunction to behave in any humane manner towards those that ‘believe’ differently. They would use all of their power to disempower those that are different because the angry sky-king hates those that they hate, and wants them to burn forever. They would just help him and move the time-table up a little bit.
The world would be a scary, scary place with people like that in charge.
PROTIP: If you come upon a person that is not breathing, unconscious, or appears to be dead, call 911.
