  1. A new treasure trove of FJ material has just emerged--The David Barton School of Political Science at Ecclesia College in Arkansas. Read all about it at http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/david-barton-school-political-science-now-actual-thing . (Not breaking the link because it's a news source.) Given the fact that Barton has clearly been proven a fraud, it's amazing to me that he is still so popular in these circles. On the other hand, he's saying what they want to hear, so why wouldn't they keep loving him. They ignore plenty of other well-established facts; why not this too?
  2. A video of about 15 minutes in which a lawyer explains the prevalence of Dominionists in the US military (28-34%) and his group's work to stop their infringements on other members' rights. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2Btp2MZON ... Btp2MZONow
  3. (apologies if this has been posted here already) In light of our recent discussions about how fundamentalists (SAHDs in particular, after their headships have passed on) manage to make a living while shunning interactions with "the world," I'm sharing Christian Dominionism's parallel economy. Apparently there's a fairly efficient network which allows Christians of an ultra-conservative stripe to deal directly with each other and avoid the rest of us. Discuss!
  4. I'm fighting a sadness today, and distracting myself by poking around for things to laugh at .... even if the laughter is brittle. Dear, demure, restored, sales-whiz Stacy McDonald is recycling her stories on the ole yoursacredcalling.com blog, and I dove into one on "why we wear dresses" with .... a little glee. Stacy primly asks us to read the entire article before we comment. So I did, even followed the links contained within and read those. I'll snark later - immediately, the life of privilege that Stacy and others lead is what I want to comment upon. It's the life of the person who doesn't *have* to shop at Goodwill - but who may choose to "thrift" to fulfill her creative side. As opposed to the one whose budget allows Goodwill and not much else. Or who has time for reflection as to whether what she's put on shows her to be a follower of Jesus of Nazareth - and who doesn't automatically acknowledge nuns in Roman Catholic orders who do and don't wear traditional habits. As opposed to the woman whose reflection after dressing is a blur - she's got to get to the hospital/restaurant/office to support her family with a dreary job outside the home. Or for whom deciding when and how to counsel a sinnin' sister about her visible cleavage, or thighs, or underwear. As opposed to the person who needs to decide when and how to counsel a homeless woman who's stalked into the narthex (church lobby) after services demanding money, or a woman who's shaking from the DT's. It's the privileged man/husband/father whose masculinity can be amplified by his wife and daughters wearing skirts, but actually it's the sad man whose masculinity is competed with by his wife and/or daughters in trousers. As opposed to the man who's simply glad his female relations have clothes to wear, and the happy one whose masculinity doesn't consider itself competed with by a female - in any style of dress. I'm as privileged as they come. I've never gone to bed hungry because there was no food for me to eat. I'm in a mere two layers of clothes while the temps outside continue to plummet, because my house is warmed by a reliable source. In fact, I'm privileged because I *have* a house. Stacy and her ilk have financial success, most of their health, huge families and dozens of friends, well appointed houses and properly behaving husbands. They actually - I just realized - have to LOOK for things to complain about and worry about and obsess over and lecture about to others. They're so foolishly clueless in their whining and uber-moralizing. I could live that way, but I won't. Sources cited: yoursacredcalling.com/blog/2013/10/are-pants-modest/ (aka, Why we wear skirts, featuring photos of a young woman in various poses of chastity - bent backward with arms flung ecstatically wide; standing with one hip thrust to the side and her waist and bosom in fine silhouette) yoursacredcalling.com/blog/2013/10/three-signs-that-christians-have-been-desensitized-by-feminism/ (or, 3 Signs How Even Good Christians have been Desensitized by Feminism, including our pearl-clutching at a 12-yo boy who likes dolls but not at a 12-yo girl who likes active play; and a response from a woman who thanks G-d she's a woman because she is able to enjoy war tales AND books about china dishes and pretty things -- and no real man can enjoy fine china and beautiful items without being, y'know, ghey) Privileged people, that's what they all are.
  5. http://news.yahoo.com/taliban-says-try- ... ories.html Malala survived an extremist Islamist attempt on her life for endorsing education for girls. (Her attackers claim it's because she made fun of her religion. Potato, potahto.) She has all my admiration. And the nagging question: Were extremist Christian dominionists to take over in USA, how many centuries would it be before women were denied educations? Or would it be decades? Scary to consider.
  6. talk2action.org/story/2013/10/8/132658/236/ Years ago, Cruz worked with the late Paul Weyrich on the strategy they would follow, and it was written as follows, by Eric Heubeck It appears they are right on target. I also am looking into Cruz's father, who is currently some kind of minister/director of some ministry and some church that doesn't come up when you search.... but I'm still looking.
  7. Not starting a political argument here, swear. But at the moment it looks like we almost have three parties in Washington, not two. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/0 ... 24755.html And one of them looks a lot like it's affiliated with the People We Snark On. Can we come up with a list of politicians to watch/watch out for? I'll open with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), he of the Dr. Seuss filibusterer. After all, his father surely makes the cut which, when couples with his record, is a good indication of his belief patterns. Has anyone else picked up on this? morganguyton.wordpress.com/2013/09/30/theology-of-government-shutdown/

    Dominion Skills

    dominionskills.com Photos provide many fundie-spotting opportunities, especially the Memorial Day event.
  9. Mention elsewhere of the James McDonald faction of dominionism prompt me to look at Stacy's "Your Sacred Calling" but not much there so I go to her married daughter in Calif's blog, the one whose hubs enjoys posing in women's hats as well as wearing a top hat to Les Miz. IOW, fundies I could get along w. So I'm befuddled by their dis of artist Cindy Sherman: asimplerenaissance.blogspot.com/2012/09/of-hellos-having-fun-and-sad-goodbyes.html?m=1 Is she *that* avant-garde? Why would Ben & Tiff go to the trouble of throwing out a negatory comment in what otherwise seems a pleasant post about a sister's visit? Trying to assure the folks they're still judgmental, possibly ?
  10. Doug Wilson announced on his blog that the young star was a member of his Christ Church in Moscow, ID: dougwils.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=8711:super-8&catid=72:shameless-appeals I just posted a breaking exclusive about it over on Datalounge that has more links: http://www.datalounge.com/cgi-bin/iowa/ ... 10551404,1
  11. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/06/0 ... -Democracy Long live theocracy
  12. The New Life Church, founded by Jerry Falwell, got its tentacles into a mainstream Baptist church in my town a few years ago, and has two "campuses" here now. It advertises itself as "a church for people who don't like church." Its big celebrity member is our former Republican governor John Rowland, who did time for corruption, and now hosts a right-wing talk show. The sect has become so popular that it hosts its Christmas and Easter services in a major concert venue in the next town over. Now it's bought a girnomous outdoor recreation and entertainment complex in the same town for $1.8 million dollars: http://www.myrecordjournal.com/local/ar ... mment-area At the moment, only one comment has been posted, and I think the writer is right on the money.
  13. ....I'm ready for an FJ/all-things-dominionist-snarking vacation? I just awoke from a very clear dream in which I phoned a dominionist family, and when the mom answered, introduced myself as if we'd conversed before, -- then with embarrassment realized they are in a different time zone and I'd awakened the family. Worse, somehow I knew [sic] that there had been a loss in the family, and I hung up in sadness and self-reproach. Good. Grief. Is there no Sandman who will bring me a dream of Ryan Gosling, Tom Selleck (1980s version) or George Clooney??? Is this a sign it's time to take a break from even lurking about the FJ-iverse???? I didn't have pizza for dinner so it isn't that.....
  14. http://riverdaughter.wordpress.com/2012 ... d-numbers/ Mentions the Duggars, Above Rubies, and all that scary Quiverfull stuff.
  15. A new post on Visionary Womanhood quotes Gary North (Rushdoony son-in-law, advocate of stonery, slavery, and other BIblical social programs, Y2K freakout proponent, etc.) Apparently our economic woes are all down to the fact that we use paper money and not gold and silver coins as God intended. Trufax! But don't feel down when you hear bad economic news, because Visionary Women believe in the Leninist principle "the worse, the better" - let America go to the dogs ASAP, so the revolutionary cadres children trained in godly homes can take over and found a truly Christian nation. In other news, praying and reading the Bible are not good treatments for anxiety disorders. visionarywomanhood.com/pecan-pies-precious-metals-tough-economic-times/
  16. Wow, I think we have another whackadoodledoodle doo. She makes Kelly look sane and balanced. She's the mom of 4 kids under six, has written a book and is releasing an album. (She either is one of those people with huge reserves of energy, or she's on an extended manic phase) She's Canadian, but totally on the Dominionist bandwagon: leahslabyrinth.wordpress.com/2011/01/04/the-churchs-socialist-army/#comments Whatever happened to "let your women keep silence"
  17. I don't know if you heard of this, but there is a movement called the New Apostolic Reformation largely associated with Pentecostal and Charismatic movements. I tell when I think of Charismatics, I think of Becky Fischer form Jesus Camp So VF is not the only one looking for Dominion Theocracy.
  18. http://caffertyfile.blogs.cnn.com/2011/ ... =obnetwork I am very glad that more and more mainstream news outlets are discussing dominionism, what it means, and who has ties to it: I found this question on CNN's Cafferty File (the comments are really interesting): A sampling of responses from commenters: ETA: Bonnie's response, which gives me hope for the average American who is unfamiliar with dominionism.
  19. N. Somnia and I were talking and the subject arose of outbreeding the enemy. One of us got to thinking about this. The Dominionist baby boomers must be fretful about the pace of breeding of their Gen-X/Y children. Consider: The Servens, married in 1979, have children aged 31, 29, 27, 25, 23, 18ish, 15ish, 11 and 10, and one grandchild. The Maxwells, married some time around 1975, have children aged 34ish, 32ish, 30, and then five between ages 15-ish and 21-ish, and they have two grandchildren. The McDonalds, with 10 children in their late 20s IIRC down through the pre-teens, have three (?) grandchildren also IIRC and AFAIK only one of those kids' parents are into the lifestyle enough to show themselves off with a blog (Mr. & Mrs. Ben Hector). The Browns, ironically the infertile couple of the bunch that comes to mind, have four children, five grandchildren and one on the way. The M. Thomases, with 5 or 6 children, three of them in their mid- or late-20s and two late-teen boys, have three grandchildren. The Zeses (Missouri-area doms and VF board member, not bloggers) have three daughters in their 20s, no marriages, no grandchildren. The Reins (Ahthelifers) have two daughters in their early 30s, no marriages, no grandchildren. I don't follow the Mortons and Smiths but surely somebody can provide the data. So the Browns seem to be leading the pack that I can think of, and they only raised four of their own. They also are in the habit of marrying their kids off PDQ. Thus my hypothesis: The Boomer Dominionists' children don't seem to be practicing what their folks preached & practiced. Part of this may be due to some of the parents' habit of keeping the girl women children tidily at home to provide household support. Part of it may be due to some of the parents' apparent inclination to end the children's formal education wtih homeschool graduation, thus leaving the boys without formal post-secondary education that increases the likelihood of their ability to support a family. Questions arise faster than answers. Did the Boomer parents - most of whom either have or appear to have formal, post-secondary educations - plan to let their sons 'drop out' after Grade 12, as it were? Did they/do they not pay attention to the facts of female fecundity WRT aging? Did they have a plan? What was it? Understand, please: This development doesn't bother me too very much. The fewer folks to take Dominionism to the streets and to DC, the better! On a slightly related note, my mind drifted to other Boomers with large families who also have numerous grandchildren. The demi-celebrity who came to mind was none other than a cheerful, hard-working Polish-Canadian Roman Catholic: Alex Debogorski, one of the Ice Road Truckers. IIRC, he and Mrs. D have 11 children and 14 grandchildren. Alex doesn't wanna take over the world. He prays when he's in trouble (even the Our Father!), helps out others on the road, tries not to deck Hugh The Mouth (idiot!) and deals with the sad facts of getting srsly older, out there on the tundra. OK, I think I'm ready to try some shuteye, again. No, wait: It just occurred to me that there probably are tens of thousands of Boomer Dom'ts with huge grandchildren populations -- but they don't blog. Might as well make some coffee.
  20. visionarywomanhood.com/the-liberals-dominion-theology/ I'm a little confused I thought it was a guest post by Kelly GC but maybe not. anyway, among the pearls: ok so I make a difference between ideology and religion. It's in their benefit. O_o If now it's free for all, let's start tearing the Bible apart and putting the FBI on their asses...! MY head, it hurts Now maybe I lost something in history classes, but seemed to me they left England because of religion persecutions and thus would not establish one particular religion in the US. I thought there were Jews and other religions represented in the founding years? Sometimes I want to bump my head in the wall (but I don't) won't they ever understand that liberalism is the very reason they are allowed to have their little crazy speech, to force their daughters to stay at home without anyone coming and checking what they're doing? That because of the very loose liberalism that tolerates all speech even hate speech, people like westboro are allowed to protest, and people like them are allowed to get in front of abortion clinic and protest??? Get a clue!!!
  21. I can propose all sorts of theories on why Dominionists believe what they believe but instead of listening to my own ramblings, I am really interested in what other people have to say, especially those who come out of this subculture. So help me 'understand' Dominionism. Why are Dominionists so obsessed with: - Gender, sexuality and purity? - Reinstating Biblical law and legalism as Christians? - What is their eschatology? - How deep is their Patriarchy/mysogyny? - What is their ultimate 'vision' for America and the world? - Their concept of God (Trinity) and humanity? Is it really true that: - VF instructs women to refer to their husbands as 'lord'? - Women are not seen as created in the image of God but in the image of man? - Dominionists rather see a woman die of the complications of a dangerous pregnancy than abort? - They want to abolish universal suffrage? In short, what is their obsession with WOMEN? Thanks!
