Theocracy Just Down the Road

According to this article, the Seat of Theocracy is just down the road. About 10 miles to Midway Presbyterian & only 15 miles to Trinity Chapel --- just a very short drive my house.

Now before I post something that really chaps your butt, let me make sure I send you the Boudreux's Butt Paste for the right reason. There are some fine folks at both Midway Presbyterian & at Trinity Chapel. Many of those folks are good friends of mine. I've got got great clients who attend both churches. My wife attended Midway Presbyterian before I snagged her into the glorious light of being a Baptist. (OK. It was just a funny.) This is not directed at the people in any way.

I do, however, have strong disagreement with your theology & your attempt to remove the 1st Amendment protections of the Establishment Clause & the Free Exercise Clause. You have every right to call for whatever political movement you so desire, but don't manipulate history or doctrine to justify the politics..

Just read the article. It should rattle everyone. Our Constitution is at stake. If anyone else advocated the overthrow of the Constitution & our system of gov't, it would be termed treason. Why this is not similarly termed is beyond me.

If you thought Theocracy & Reconstructionism were something a long way off in some other place or some other time, think again.

. . unless judges “acknowledge God,” they “should be impeached. . ."

. . . Gary North, a top Reconstruction theorist, wrote in his 1989 book, Political Polytheism: The Myth of Pluralism. “Those who refuse to submit publicly…must be denied citizenship.”

. . . DeMar’s lecture focused on the “three governments”—family, church, and state—all of which, he told me, should be ruled by God-fearing men.

. . . DeMar told me . . . he’d execute gays only if they were caught indulging in sodomy. “I’m happy to just drive them back into the closet,” he said

. . . And, perhaps most importantly, the state is “God’s minister,” as DeMar puts it in Liberty at Risk, “taking vengeance out on those who do evil.”

. . . Gary North wrote in 1982, in an effort to reach Baptists,“We must use the doctrine of religious liberty…until we train up a generation of people who know that there is no religious neutrality, no neutral law, no neutral education, and no neutral civil government. Then they will get busy constructing a Bible-based social, political, and religious order which finally denies the religious liberty of the enemies of God.”

. . . [DeMar said]“All governments are theocracies,” he said. “We now live in a secular humanist theocracy. I want to change that to a government with God at its head.”

This is a little more than scary. Are these people still out from under their rocks? Obviously they cut history class somewhere along the way, or they didn't listen. The very things these quotes advocate are the reasons the early settlers left Europe. The founding fathers were still close enough to the tyranny of theocracies that they founded our country on religious freedom and the separation of church and state.
