We know that Sarah Palin believes in Creationism and thinks that it should be taught as science in public schools. But she’s not really a Creationist, she actually subscribes to another Christian faction called DOMINIONISM.
Dominionism, as you will learn is directly antithetical to the “separation of church and state” a phrase first coined by Thomas Jefferson and then quoted by the United States Supreme Court, first in 1878, and then in a series of cases starting in 1948.
Dominionism holds that Christians have rightful “dominion” over the earth- including its political institutions. They wish to make America a “Christian” nation, ruled by Christians, and have stated boldly that the U.S. Constitution should be replaced by Christian sovereignty and Christian principles, including, by the way- the execution of gays.
There is no way that someone that hold the belief of Dominionism can honestly take an oath of office which has the taken swear to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States when that are opposites of each other.
The originator of Dominionist theology is Rousas John Rushdoony, who held, among other notions, that the principles of Christianity and democracy are enemies and that society should be governed exclusively by the law of God as codified in the Bible.
Now, for those of you that were a little put off by Sarah Palin’s belief in Creationism, I am sure that reading this is probably incurring the same reaction I had….utter disgust followed by a cold sweat.
Pat Robertson is, and Jerry Falwell was….self-avowed Christian Reconstructionists/Dominionists. GETTING THE PICTURE?
If anything Sarah Palin previously said and/or done has given you cause for concern or doubt in her “political fitness” to be elected to be Vice President of the United States…..then this should scare the ever-loving shit out of you!
