Since 9/11 the United States’ heightened fear of Muslim people and the Islamic religion has been out on Front Street. This fear of Islam has plunged us into two wars (Afghanistan and Iraq) and potential another one (Iran). This always looming potential fear has been feed to Americans the last 10+ years. But, there is another entity that I am more fearful of in this country that is looming like the Republic in Star Wars lore…them damn radical Christians.
Yeah, you know who I am talking about when I mean radical Christians right? Those people like Rick Santorum who believes that the church and state shouldn’t be separate. That everyone in this country should be Christian even though we all have a 1st Amendment that protects our Freedom of Religion. They even call Barack Obama a Christian atheist now. You know those types. Honestly I am scared of those people more than the Al Qaeda because they are slowly trying to inundate their doctrine into American policies and law. Don’t believe me well here are a few recent examples…
Green Dragon War
First go check out Green Dragon War and Environmentalism. Alright after you have viewed that you will see that they are DEAD ASS SERIOUS. If you haven’t viewed the video basically the far right Radical Christians are now proclaiming that they have evidence that the environmental movement is evil and apart of the devil. They call the movement the Green Dragon and they are at War at them. They talk about the idea that we should just do whatever to the environment because God gave us (humans) dominion and power over it. Yes, they believe that conserving and saving the earth is NOT in God’s plan. Yes, you read this right. They believe that helping the environment is working against the power of God. These radical Christians aren’t just on a fringe they are many of the U.S. Representative and State Officials we have in our states who have subscribed to this idea.
Separation of Church and State
The separation of church and state has been a pillar of our society since the constitution was created. Just like slavery it has taken our country a little time to get it right when it comes to it but people such as Rick Santorum( he has now backtracked his original statement), Rick Perry, and Sarah Bachmann think there she not be a difference in church and state. The scary part about this is that they are trying to rewrite one of the main proponents of the Bill of Rights. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ….” and Article VI specifies that “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States”.
These radical Christians believe “their” values should be the prime key in the laws being created. They want prayer in public schools for instance but what if you are Muslim, Jewish, or atheist should you have to take part in “Christian prayer” at school? Or that a job shouldn’t honor or respect your religious practices?
Hate of Women
Sometimes I wonder who many of these Radical Christians are having sex with. The reason I say this because they produce so many bills and notions that are hateful to women. They don’t want women to have birth control at all so they start out by trying to act ont he idea that insurance company’s shouldn’t have to cover it. Then you have bills being pushed in Virginia, Alabama, and now Pennsylvania in concerns of transvaginal ultrasounds in abortions. Then you have intrusive rape kits on the books in other states.
Regardless of their ideas on abortion many of these radical Christians/Republicans believe they are honoring the will of God in the intrusive transvaginal ultrasounds. I mean many of these same people will say that a woman who was rape may have deserved it or put herself at the wrong place at the wrong time.
I have had debates with folks who don’t take as much of an issue as I do with radical Christians. I always tell them to caution themselves because maybe it’s the angry black man in me but I always feel when some rights are being infringed on are some maniacal thought process is being pushed that “negroes” are soon to be brought to their Evangelical carpet. Don’t get caught up in the smoke screen of all these organizations having “Family” or “values” placed in their names. They want to control the way YOU live your life. We all thought the Tea Party was a joke too but they became a political force the last 4 years didn’t they? These radical Christians are picking up steam so stay woke before we wake up in a society where everyone has to believe in their God or a God to live in this country.
