Religious Fascism December 13, 2007

Posted by sel4592 in news, Politics, religion.

Ok, maybe I am diving off the deep end here, but I am becoming more of the opinion that this country may be on its way to becoming a fascist state.  At least that is what the insane christian right demagogues want.  According to the Oxford Dictionary:

fascism: an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.  (In general use) extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.  

 Its the second sentence that gets me.  This thoroughly defines the mind set of such wonderful loons like Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell and all of there insane followers.  My fear is that someone like Huckabee would be a tool for such religious fascists. As Sam Stein from the Huffington post stated this morning:

the Huckabee-Falwell relationship was more than just a mutually beneficial partnership. It was a shared political ethos. Both men saw a dominant role for faith in government. And while Falwell passed away this past spring (he was, Huckabee claimed “one of Christendom’s great leaders”) Huckabee has continued working to that end. Indeed, not since Pat Robertson sought the GOP nomination in 1988 has someone so emphatically religious been so close to the White House. 

 Am I wrong to have this fear?  Will our constitution protect us from such destructive nonsense?  Its hard to say since the present stupidity in the white house and many of those in congress now already try their hardest to walk all over the constitution.

Love your blog. Kudos for speaking your mind. I’m not an Atheist. But, my definition of god is so far removed from the mainstream, I won’t waste my breath. In a nutshell, GOD is always the culmination of all that is – whatever IT is.
The sum total of it’s parts. Something like that. I may need to modify.

I share your fears. I think Huckabee scares me more than any other candidate with the exception of Rudy G.

I think Rudy will start to show his true colors before long as more and more of his corrupt past comes to light. This of course leaves more room for Huckster Huckabee to glow in the light of his jeebus freak followers.
