The new word for 2005: Theofascism

I am becoming aware of a new term on a lot of the blogs I read: "Theofascism", a new term that describes the goals of the Religious Right in this country. Here's an example of it posted on a Yahoo forum. Are you ready for an America that looks like this? :


Christians Are Taking Back America

And we are THROUGH kowtowing to muslims, atheists, homosexuals and anti-American "artists" living on our tax dollars!

By the end of President George W Bush's 2nd term:

1) Iraq will be well on the way to being a peaceful Christian country. Once Iraq has gone Christian, the Gospel of Jesus will spread throughout the Middle East. The region will be at peace and millions of Arab souls will be saved through the grace of Jesus Christ.

2) Bush will have appointed at least two USSC Justices and the baby slaughterhouses will finally be closed down forever.

3) Gays will be put back in the closet for good. The sodomy and decency laws will be reinstated and their disgusting disease spreading activities will be outlawed again. Maybe we can’t get rid of them, but we can get them out our children’s view.

4) School vouchers will allow parents to send their kids to decent Christian schools instead of the NEA-infested cesspools that exist now.

5) Worthless liberal social welfare programs will be dismantled and replaced by Christian faith-based government funded programs. People will finally get REAL help through Jesus Christ.

6) Filthy shows like Howard Stern, Jerry Springer and Will & Grace will be off the air and replaced with decent Christian family programming. Families will once again be able to turn on the radio or television and not be embarrassed to listen or watch together.

7) The abominable scourge of Internet pornography will end with the expansion and ENFORCEMENT of the Online Decency Act. Pornographers who expose the public to this sickening material will be behind bars where they belong.

You can be with us or against us, but you had BETTER believe one thing:

Christians are DONE sitting at the back of the bus.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Uhh..

This seems so extreme it's difficult to believe it has a popular backing even amongst Christians. Tell me it aint so.

Sounds a lot like Klan gibberish... Nice word though -- I like it!

I was a big fan of the strategy they adopted a few years back. The plea for tolerance for christians. Nice touch how they turned the number one critisizm of them against themselves.

RE: The new word for 2005: Theofascism

I don't see it as purely Christian. Theofascism is a world wide movement. Our Christian Theofascist government supports the incumbent Jewish Theofascist factions in Israel, and seems to be forging some kind of alliance with the theofascists in Iraq while it continues to kiss Saudi Theofascist ass.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please.

It's an action-reaction thing. Different flavors will all just grow more extreme with time...

I wouldn't call it a movement in muslim countries. It's sort of the status quo for the last 500 years.

I'm not sure it applies to Isreal as well. While certainly a theocracy, I think they view the current "unpleasntness" in very secular terms of power and security. I don't think it's a "god told us to do this" situation, although I'm sure a minority express that view.

Definatly a problem in the US where it seems that we have retreated from embracing science and it's possibilities to embracing mysticsism and it's vaugeries.

RE: The new word for 2005: Theofascism

The alliance between US Christian fundamentalists and the Likkud is extremely counter productive to peace. Both are adamently opposed to the creation of a Palestinian state.
