The goal of politically active evangelicals is nothing less than the imposition of a full Christian theocracy - and that's no exaggeration.

Read their literature. Listen to what their people say at various conferences and events, including some well-known political figures like former AG Bill Barr, Tom Cotton, Josh Hawley, and even Ted Cruz. They and others are on the record at right wing events promoting what's sometimes referred to as Dominionism.

Do some searches on Christian Dominionism. It's pretty scary stuff. This is what underpins the religious right, which in just the last few years has fully snatched away control of the Republican Party from Wall Street and pro-business fiscal conservatives who were previously its main power players. The subversion of institutions they talk about is exactly what we're seeing right now. These people are serious. And we'd better be just as serious about opposing them.

@TonyStark Between the anti-covid containment to this, evangelicals in this country have lost credibility. Religion should be out of politics.

@ThorOfAsgard
Ask me... Because I follow the old religion, some people put me into the right wing corner. Where I don't belong at all
My point is, that I agree. Religion should be out of politics

@Judybeesteeler I respect others' religious beliefs, just not the imposition on others and already different religions have different beliefs on the issue. It's nice to find others who think the same.

@ThorOfAsgard Religious freedom goes for all religions. Fanatismo is always wrong
