There Is a New Fancy Word For People Like Bachmann and Perry
There is a popular idea in America which suggests that "devout Christians" are the best people to rule us all. Obviously that is hidden in secret code and hieroglyphics , somewhere in the Constitution. Apparently, though, there is now a special name for this idea! It is called "Demonism" "Dominionism."
Of the three most plausible candidates for the Republican nomination, two are deeply associated with a theocratic strain of Christian fundamentalism known as Dominionism. If you want to understand Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry, understanding Dominionism isn’t optional.
Put simply, Dominionism means that Christians have a God-given right to rule all earthly institutions.
For believers in Dominionism, rule by non-Christians is a sort of sacrilege—which explains, in part, the theological fury that has accompanied the election of our last two Democratic presidents.
That President Obama just spends too much time at the mosque. Well "Dominionism" might be the technical name for what's happening with these people, but that is hard to spell, so how about "Crazy." [The Daily Beast]
