Now here’s a delightful group: “Christian Reconstructionists.” Let’s just call them Recons. Recons prove you can never over-educate yourself about the wonderful Rapture-Righties. (I just know Elmer Fudd would call them the “Wacky Wighties,” bless his little heart.) These guys are the Real GodFather – you know, the one that shows up late at night when Daddy God thinks no one is looking -- after he removes the human-face mask, the false teeth, and drops down onto all fours?
“…According to Reconstructionist belief, the Bible allows liberal application of the death penalty for crimes including homosexuality, abortion, adultery, child disobedience, and witchcraft. Acceptable forms of capital punishment supposedly outlined in the Bible include burning, stoning, and hanging. Slavery is also acceptable, according to Reconstructionists who claim that the Bible does not outlaw all of its methods.”But my dears! You haven’t heard the worst. Oh, no. Worse even than their aliens-from-Mars belief system, these Recons are actually making inroads into our national capital – at least according to this (admittedly old) article from feminist.org:
“Jeffrey Ziegler, President of the National Reform Association (NRA), a Pittsburgh, PA based Christian Reconstructionist organization, has announced plans to form a political action committee and public policy organization, officially entering Washington’s world of politics…. The NRA and Christian Reconstructionism, however, already have close ties to Washington. NRA members have met with several Republicans in the House and Senate during three trips to Washington, DC made since July 2000…. President Bush may be considering J. Robert Brame III, board member of Reconstructionist group American Vision as a member of the National Labor Relations Board. Brame has written that the “only sure guide is Divinely-inspired Biblical law superintended by the God Who watches over His Word.” MORE >>>Could this be why Congress hasn’t been worth a hill of beans lately? – they’ve been kidnapped by Daddy God?
Anyhoo! All this reminds me of the whole point of this blog, which is, "SAVING THE PLANET -- by gently replacing god the Father with God the Mother by the year 2025." We need to get serious about this, people. 2025 minus 2005 is only 20. And in less than a month we'll hafta subtract 2006 from 2025, leaving only 19 years to rid the planet of Mr. Daddy god.
