If you’ve been here before, you know I have no use for the Christian Dominionist theology professed by many Conservative Christians. I believe, and continue to believe, that the “Seven Mountains” theology, espoused by the likes of noted fraud David Barton, is not only heretical, but one step from fascism.
So, this morning, I’m reading our local newspaper, the East Valley Tribune, and what headline catches my eye?
Gilbert event reminds Mormons to uphold, defend US Constitution
So, of course, it is with great interest that I begin to read the story. After getting about halfway through, I had to stop. I had to stop because, based on some of the quotes attributed to current and former LDS Presidents, it became very obvious that the Mormon Church had embraced Christian Fascism.
“Next to being one in worshiping God, there is nothing in this world upon which this Church should be more united than in upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States.” read a quote by LDS President David O. McKay.
“There is no such thing as Constitutional rights,” he said. “It’s a misnomer. Rights come from God.”
To the many of the Mormon faith, the Constitution is more than just a great piece of paper written by intelligent, deeply philosophical men; it is a piece of divinely inspired work.
At one point, a screen behind Krauser read: “The members of the church are under divine commandment to revere the Constitution as a heaven-inspired instrument,” a quote attributed to LDS President Wilford Woodruff.
Now, I’m not one to say that people of certain religions aren’t fit to hold political office…*cough*Tea Party*cough*. However, since this appears to be church doctrine, perhaps it’s time for Mitt Romney, a long time Bishop and Mormon in good standing, to answer some tough questions. For what did Sinclair Lewis say?
“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross.”
