What Would Dominionists Do With Gays?

Warren Throckmorton answers that question as he dives deep into the different flavors of Dominionism and comes up with many different answers, none of them good. Some are, as he puts it, “squeamish about ‘severe sanctions’ like death.” But others, not so much. It’s an excellent breakdown. You will want to keep this link handy.

Yikes! Death for divorce? Death for the birth of bastards? Death for doctors? Death for all who “show”their sexuality? Is this the Dark Ages again?

I’m beginning to believe Christians can’t coexist with anyone!

Oh great, I just read this – was going to suggest you post something about it.

I reckon that all these dominionists – before actually trying to inflict these princples on the populace should first “try” it out themselves.

Get 200 or so families together with a nice fence around their community. Then, as sins are committed, instead of executing – exile them out. I think your support for politics that would see you directly extinguished, would vanish pretty fast.

Hell, they could make a reality show out of it, and for effect have mock executions of those who get “voted off the island.”

Then interview them after, and see if they still wanna follow those rules in real life.

Sadly, most Dominionists don’t REALLY want to live like that themselves. They just want to force everyone else to live that way. They always hide…or make excuses for…their own sins.

The Dominionists are only a small percentage of Protestant fundamentalists, and an even smaller percentage of Christians overall. It isn’t at all fair to judge all Christians by what Dominionists believe.

However, I’ll agree with anyone who says that a small demographic can still be influential.

Let me just point out something:

“He said Christians who crusade for social reform should consider the outcome of the Prohibition Act, which outlawed alcohol but also fueled organized crime.

“Christians had made a massive impact in the ‘temperance movement’ to stop drunkenness. Then they overreached with draconian legislation called the Volstead Act, and the backlash legalized alcohol,” Wallnau said. “To my brothers in Uganda I would say, ‘Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.’””

The words of Lance Walnau, one of the Dominionists supposedly “squeamish” toward the death penalty. Note that his concern is NOT that people will be put to death for their private sexual behaviour; no, his concern is that draconian measures will result in a backlash.

He’s just fine with gays dying – if only they’d stay dead.

This is scary, but it does serve to show what extremism can lead to. I would hope that followers of Jesus will stand up to this misuse of the bible.

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
