Theocracy… christofascist… weird.

Doesn’t sound Christ-like at all. If it were … There is only one king, Jesus, and the citizens are a royal priesthood of servant leaders who do not “lord it”.

What you are freaking out about … if it is even accurately depicted … has nothing to do with Jesus. Nihil for the fire.

A few specific developments should alarm everyone who values American democracy. First, during the July 2022 stop of Flynn’s (multi-state) ReAwaken America Tour (RAT) in Virginia, Flynn and a militant group called the “Black Robe Regiment” recruited 150 pastors into the organization’s ranks.

Has any actual violence come from or been threatened by them? Do you consider prayer violent? Is that soldier praying instead of fighting?

Not taking sides without a good reason. The media propaganda machine is whack.

In my objective view.. I guess their thinking is.. the Judaeo-politico faction utilise their religion in the socio-political arena -as do other religions- so they are levelling their playing field, by doing likewise.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

Yes responding to a hyped-up and massively exaggerated view of "islam". And more importantly a hyped-up and irrational reaction to Wokism, Atheism, Leftism, CRT ad nauseum..
