Theocracy

this is truly frightening. What is controlling policy? Prophecy is controlling policy. Not analysts. Not experts. But a dusty old volume of hate, lies and hoo-doo.

Great. That's just what I wanted to hear on a gloomy Thursday afternoon when I'm already in a bad mood!

This is truly scary:
When Pastor Upton was asked to explain why the group's website describes the Apostolic Congress as "the Christian Voice in the nation's capital," instead of simply a Christian voice in the nation's capital, he responded, "There has been a real lack of leadership in having someone emerge as a Christian voice, someone who doesn't speak for the right, someone who doesn't speak for the left, but someone who speaks for the people, and someone who speaks from a theocratical perspective."

When his words were repeated back to him to make sure he had said a "theocratical" perspective, not a "theological" perspective, he said, "Exactly. Exactly. We want to know what God would have us say or what God would have us do in every issue."


Wonderful. So go ahead and share your not left, not right but just down the center social science on gay marriage and just feed whatever you want into that president's ear. Wonderful.
