So, Rafael “Ted” Cruz wants to be President of the United States. That should scare the crap out of any sane person. Ted and his supposed pastor father (I say “supposed” because there is scant evidence of his ever pastoring a church) subscribe to a very dark end-times religious doctrine referred to as Dominionism, and the two of them have decreed that Ted is ordained by God to lead the Government area of influence of the 7 Mountain scheme of Dominionists (more on that later).

This is a longer article, and I apologize for that, but there is much you need to know and understand, particularly as regards the Cruz’s religious beliefs.

The Father

rafael-cruz-485x303You really don’t quite get Ted as the truth challenged theocrat he is, without understanding his father, who frequently campaigns as a surrogate for Ted. So let’s get this all out of the way right up front.

Rafael has an interesting bio posted on the American Speakers booking website. He was helped out of Cuba to come to America to attend the University of Texas in Austin. His public bio states he, “immigrated to this country over 55 years ago to flee an oppressive communist regime. He fought in the revolution and was imprisoned and tortured.” The problem with that is, he actually fought on the side of Fidel Castro during the communist takeover.  He was granted political asylum in the U.S. (something he and his son now oppose for others), after his student visa expired. He got married, divorced and remarried while living in New Orleans. He later moved to Canada where he was naturalized, and then back to U.S., where he was naturalized in 2005. Continue reading »

Dominionism in Schools-A Warning

Conservative Professor Warren Throckmorton tips us to a back-end method to get dominionist views into the schools. David Whitney, receiving today’s Daily Douche award, is head of the “Institute On The Constitution (IOTC),” and is working to form, in schools across the country, deceptively named “American Clubs.” You should know that Whitney teaches that  only born again Christians should be citizens,  and that civil government should worship God according to their dominionist ideas.

It was only a matter of time until one of the dominionists started saying it out loud. No doubt he’ll be called “brave” for just speaking what so many are thinking. If more conservative Christians don’t start slapping this stuff down as soon as their brethren bring it up, Christianity itself is going to be blamed for these attitudes when Christianity is a minority religion.

This is an ugly theology, and a blight on good Christians across this country. The problem facing Christians is not winning hearts and minds, though. Just as Islam is being lost to terrorism and barbarity, Christianity may be lost to racism and dominionism. The IOTC and groups like it are not just wayward Christians; they are as sinister and treacherous as anything this country has ever produced. They have no intention of living peaceably with anyone else, and if Christians who value the Constitution, religious freedom, and peace don’t stand up to them publicly, you’ll have a much harder time claiming they are not the essence of Christianity after they reach their full destructive potential.
