Bobby Franklin- Christian TERRORIST

The christian supremacists love  "nosing into everyone's busineess.
Their view is that whatever their own particular view of the bible comes down to on any issue MUST be imposed on all US citizens by law.  Their chief doctrine is the conflation of RELIGION with politics and law.
. Their not-so-secret goal is to create dominion over every political sphere and write their own special interpreted biblical tenets into our laws, forcing it down everyone's throat.

Is that "small government? What's next, forcing us into church at gunpoint?  Are they going to side with Cotton Mather, and erect punishment stocks in the public square?

Since religious dogma by definition is defined by "faith", it results in logic, human rights, common sense, and even "small government" doctrines being deemed irrelevant by the "faithful" if it comes to anything the dear leaders deem a matter of religious concern or doctrine.

I know of entire congregations of hundreds of well meaning people who really seem like
their lives are taken over by an alien life force. It's the cultish bubble of their own belief systems
reinforced by the Dobson/Falwell/Roberston leader types that lead to insane laws being proposed giving rights to zygotes, and wanting to punish women for even having a miscarriage:

And now we have  this genius Bobby Franklin from Georgia, whose bill
before the Georgia state legislature would make women PROVE they didn't bring on a miscarriage.

His 10-page bill would make any “prenatal murder” a felony punishable by death or life in prison—and that includes miscarriages, in the event the woman cannot prove that there was "no human involvement whatsoever in the causation" of her miscarriage.

WHAT GESTAPO STORM TROOPERS DO WE NEED TO HIRE TO WATCH OVER ALL PREGNANT WOMEN AND GIRLS 24.x 7? Should we have a national database of all pregnancies, and a new federal agency to monitor women with embedded fetal implant RFID chips that report in every hour via 4g networks?  Should we appoint Miscarriage Police and nursing corps  to ensure pregnancies come to term?

I'm sure they'd like to ban the "morning after" pill, even thought that does not cause abortions.
For that matter, by logical extension, why aren't the christian extremists going after contraceptives?
Why not band condoms, birth control pills, IUD's and the like?  After all, they do prevent
children from being born.

And why stop there?   Why not go after married couples who purposely don't have kids?
That's it, that's their new campaign: 

GOD'S WILL FOR YOU, IS WE WILL FORCE YOU TO HAVE 5 KIDS.  Otherwise you, are damned to hell.  You must have children, or face the wrath of GOD, go to jail, lose your house, and be banished from the Christian States of America

Alaska citizens reject Christian Supremacist Don Haase from judges council

 Amazing!  Some brave Alaska folks have rejected a guy who Gov Parnell of Alaska wanted for judge's council.  Don Haase finally admitted at a hearing that he wanted pre-marital and adulterous affairs to be criminalized

"Haase expressed those views during his confirmation before the judiciary committee last week.
A blog post on the Eagle Forum Alaska site had praised efforts at criminalizing adultery in Michigan, and Paskvan asked Haase whether he thought it should be a felony in Alaska.
"I don't see that that would rise to the level of a felony," Haase said. Paskvan: "Do you believe it should be a crime?"
Haase: "Yeah, I think it's very harmful to have extramarital affairs.
Paskvan: "What about premarital affairs -- should that be a crime?"
Haase:. If it came before (the state) as a vote, I probably would vote for it ... I can see where it would be a matter for the state to be involved with because of the spread of disease and the likelihood that it would cause violence. I can see legitimate reasons to push that as a crime."

This is what it's coming to in America:   The Christian Supremacists would enshrine their own biblical viewpoint into law, and the rest of us can just suck it up.  Imagine what the result would be if a Muslim, Buddhist, Jew, or Hindu wanted a bill introduced into law based on their own "sacred texts".

Mr Haase has some great company in the USA with Jim DeMint, who wanted to keep unmarried mothers out of the classroom.   What kind of prejudice does Demint conjure up  day you ask?  What if the teacher is a MILITARY WIDOW  WHOSE HUSBAND DIED IN IRAQ?  "Oh, sorry Ms Widow, you are not worthy of teaching, because Jim Demint  said so.  So just suck it up, quit your teacher job, and pine away for your husband in poverty"  "You are not worthy to teach my kids because a mother without a husband is immoral".
Notice that Jim (invader of your underwear drawer) Demint never talked about unmarried men!
Why not?  What diff does it make?  What if the husband died in a car accident?  Yup, all unmarried mothers out of the classroom, NOW!

Same with the nutcase with a twitching brain stem called Bobby Franklin from Georgia.
"What? You had a miscarriage?  I want the home security tapes from your bathroom so I can find out if you introduced slippery elm tablets into your vagina"  "It's MY RIGHT as a state legislator to know what's going on in your body, since I'm the Georgia church and state inspector for your vaginal area"

Just  do a quick google and you can find thousands of MEN who want to poke their nose into your bidness.And these men are invariably far right, prejudiced, so called "Christians" who feel their particular interpretation of biblical matters trump your rights,your freedom, your privacy, and god dammit, they ARE GOING TO ENSHRINE THESE precepts into US LAW if they  possibly can.
That's right, their RELIGIOUS PREJUDICE will become the LAWS!

Like the law in Michigan, making adultery a CRIME, if it happens in the context of a felony commission?
When I read this, I could not believe any legislature or government would enforce such stupid law in modern times, but yuppers, they just get'r dun up in Michigan.

Yes, my friends, if you happen to commit a felony that somehow involves adultery in Michigan, it could carry a life sentence. These Neandertal hypocrites like Hasse, Demint, and Franklin are motivated by the most dangerous and volatile aspect of human culture:  RELIGION. 

Their  particular brand of vicious and invasive sentiment trumps logic, family, tribe, culture, or patriotism. 

 No amount of dynamite can destroy such hateful and invasive beliefs.  Their ultimate goal is to force these "precepts" on all the rest of us and enshrine them into law. 

So much for freedom in the USA.

What is truly meant by Christian Supremacy?

You may well ask:

A quick google search will reveal 765,000 articles related.
Many religious folks aren't willing to discuss such a reactionary idea
or have never thought deeply about it.   Why should they?  They are the majority,
or at least enjoy the illusion of such.

And here's a quote from one such supremacist:
"Our job is to reclaim America for Christ, whatever the cost. As the vice regents of God, we are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government, our literature and arts, our sports arenas, our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors -- in short, over every aspect and institution of human society."  - D. James Kennedy

Supremacy of one religion over others is just
what I imagine  the framers of our US Constitution tried to prevent, by writing into our 1st amendment.
Perhaps they did not get explicit enough, but that's just my own opinion as a 3rd gen Jewish
refugee from Lithuania, where my relatives were slaughtered in 1943.

But let's face it, the USA is all about divisive and prejudiced movements in 2011.
Polarization has reach highs not seen since the 1950's when McCarthy spewed his nasty
accusations across this once great country.  You have such paragons of religious tolerance
as Beck, Palin, Limbaugh, Dobson, D James Kennedy,  and C. Peter Wagner to thank for the attacks on the
rest of the great unwashed and unbelieving masses  in the US.

The most obvious face of Christian supremacy is seen in the words  actions of the many millions of evangelical and activist fundamental christians who want to apply their own tightly interpreted vision of their faith and the bible on the rest of us.  The most convenient and potent method apparently is invading our government,
rewriting the laws.

As this blog develops I will post articles exposing and discussing the supremacists, and their closely
related friends, the christian dominionists. 

Domionionists believe that  christians are called to take complete control over every aspect of human life in order to bring about the return of Christ.

Where does that leave  buddhists, muslims, hindus, jews, agnostics, atheists, or anyone else ?
All the rest of us are 2nd or 3rd class citizens?   Yes, Virginia  I'm afraid that's true.
