[quote=“Tainan Cowboy”]Why do you want to censor someone for having an unpopular, or even stupid opinion. This guy is totally free to post any stupid theory he wants. Heck, once it gets on the internet he’s bound to find a small, but vocal, group to agree with his crap.
And post links to it in chat forums.[/quote]
I’m not sure whether this is bad sarcasm, or you just totally misread my point. I never said a thing about censoring anyone. I’m a Christian, and for that very reason I find the trends described in this rather excellent interview despicable.
Show me, please, how there’s any “crap” involved in this “stupid theory”.
I used to think there was at least a tiny bit of merit to anything you said in this forum, TC. You must be getting bitter about the way the wind has been blowing lately.
Nor does talking about God-given missions, saying the words “character” and “family” a lot, opposing gay marriage or re-criminalizing abortion. Remember this thread?
Incidentally, here are a couple more relevant threads for those interested…
Inside scoop on dominionist “Jesus camps”
Christian Coalition president-elect declines job because the organization wouldn’t let him expand its agenda beyond opposing abortion and gay marriage.
I’ve brought up numerous times (and been ignored) the fact that in the 19th and early 20th centuries Christianity was primarily a strong progressive force in politics. Things like child labor laws, economic equality and women’s rights were all issues taken on with fervor by Christian groups and prominant individuals like WJ Bryant. I agree that Leftist intellectuals were largely to blame for the split that ensued around WWI.
