Hysterical Article by Michelle Goldberg in the Daily Beast on Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry

In a silly and hysterical  article titled A Christian Plot for Domination?
Michelle Goldberg states that:
Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry aren't just devout—both have deep ties to a fringe fundamentalist movement known as Dominionism, which says Christians should rule the world.....
This is an attempt to paint Republicans as extremists unworthy of election to the presidency of the US. It is a hysterical effort to to halt the rise of Perry and Bachmann. Now of course the same was said about Ronald Reagan. It is an attempt to frighten off independent voters. It is a red herring. The US economy is tanking with a national debt of 16 TRILLION DOLLARS and an unemployment rate of 9.2%. So the Democrats cannot fight on this issue. Instead it is much better to whip up anti Christian hysteria to galvanise the secularist and leftist vote behind Obama. This article is secularist claptrap at its best.

It is an attempt to paint Bachmann and Perry as scary and dangerous. It is a liberal hit piece. It is motivated by a DISTASTE for Christianity. It is written by a secular humanist. It is a DANGEROUS article designed to mislead the ignorant.

The article is titled "A Christian Plot for Domination". There is a subtext here. Goldberg is endeavouring to convey the impression that Christianity is something alien and that Perry and Bachmann are part of some plot to enslave non Christians. It is pure balderdash.

Michele Bachmann and her husband have five children. Bachmann said at a 2011 town hall meeting that she suffered a miscarriage after the birth of their second child. This shaped her pro-life views.  Bachmann and her husband have also provided foster care for 23 other children. She is a true Christian. Nothing scary there Ms Goldberg. No fear that Ms Goldberg would mention that though.

Actually Michelle Goldbeg's attitute is scary. She is subtly whipping up anti Christian hysteria.
Is it now a crime Miss Goldberg to be a Christian or to profess belief in Christianity in America? Perhaps Ms Goldberg would prefer to see Christianity outlawed as would many secular liberals.
It is particularly interesting to notice how much of the anti Christian bile emanates from a SMALL Jewish element in America.  Christians are no threat to the US. There is no Christian terror group putting American security at risk. Christians seek to defend the right to life of the unborn. Of couse to the defend the right to life of the unborn is a crime in the eyes of many secular humanists. Where does Ms. Goldberg stand on this?

Perhaps Ms Goldberg should consider the following:
The Rome  Empire fell because of corruption and moral degradation. It was a Pagan society not a Christian society. Infanticide was rampant and soon reduced the number of soldiers available to defend the empire. Roman society went soft. Sexual diseases were widespread and killed many. Now in America we have abortion where the unborn baby is killed in its mother’s womb. American society mirrors that of ancient Rome. The US is in decline and is heading for bankruptcy just like the Roman Empire. It is increasingly Pagan. Everything immoral has been legalised. America is a sick society. It is gone soft.

The moral of the story Ms Goldberg: America needs to return to its Christian roots if it is not to go the way of the Roman Empire

It is your comment that is hysterical. Just re-read what you have written! Error of fact: The same was not said about Ronald Reagan. It was said of Reagan that he rarely darkened the door of a church, and his wife consulted astrologers. This, whether true or false, is manifestly not claiming that he was a Reconstructionist.

Second, Reconstructionism goes against the clear teaching of Jesus, who said that “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10.42-45)

The way of Dominion theology is wholly opposed to the way of Christ, and to the way of the kingdom of God. It is the church, not the state that is the agent of salvation.

The article is a nonsense. It is a red herring designed to distract attention from the mess Obama has made of the economy.The article is designed to undermine Perry and Bachmann. It is virulently anti Christian. There are no Christian terror groups operating in the US. Perry's and Bachmann's Christian beliefs are no threat to the US. To suggest otherwise as Ms Goldberg has is just plain imbecilish.
The article is titled "A Christian Plot for Domination". Do you know what a plot means? The article is an ugly smear and is sectarian.
There is a subtext here. Goldberg is endeavouring to convey the impression that Christianity is something alien and Perry and Bachmann are part of some plot to enslave non Christians. Her article is pure rubbish. There is a small element in the Jewish community in the US which loses no opportunity to attack Christianity.
As Bill Clinton said: Its the economy stupid". The economy will decide the election.
Liberals painted Reagan as an extremist. They attacked his position on abortion and the economy.
Of course liberals hate Bachmann and Perry because of their position on abortion.
