Capitol Ministries’ Ralph Drollinger Expands Right-Wing Bible Studies Within Trump Administration 

Earlier this week Right Wing Watch reported ​that Drollinger called elections a “spiritual battle” and said that only “mature” Christians are ideal candidates for public office. As RWW noted:

In previous writings, Drollinger has demonstrated little respect for Christians who interpret the Bible differently than he does. He has called the “social Gospel” that motivates millions of liberal American Christians “a perversion of scripture” and “not Christianity whatsoever!” He has called Catholicism “one of the primary false religions of the world.” He urges public officials not to take part in “syncretistic” events like the National Prayer Breakfast, arguing that by participating in events that combine different forms of belief, attendees invite God’s wrath rather than his blessing.

In “Oaks in Office,” his handbook for public officials, Drollinger wrote that “the critical and preeminent duty of the Church in an institutionally separated society” is “to evangelize and disciple—to Christianize—the leaders of the State and its citizenry.”

Trump administration officials have helped Drollinger raise money for the group, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has opened doors to help Drollinger set up shop in foreign governments.

Notice how they are now pushing this militant Christianity on not just department head leaders, but now on their subordinates.   The DOD just announced that officers can preach and share their faith with young enlisted, regardless of what the religious faith of the enlisted the officers are pushing Christianity on.   Do you see how Christian religious people have not only crept into government but are not happy unless they can force their doctrine on others.   It is not about their faith, their religious rights, it is about forcing others to worship the same god and obey the same religious rules they do.   Welcome to their golden dream, a theocracy.   I have read people calling them the US Taliban.    Hugs

Trump Admin Sues Grocery Giant Kroger Over Firing Of Two Staffers Who Refused To Wear “Rainbow” On Apron

Again religious people wanting special privilege to advertise their religious beliefs by not wearing the store uniform.   Really it is about their wanting others to know how holy they are.   It has little to do with the LGBTQ+ because the heart is not a rainbow.   The US government is joining the side of two people who want the god given right to be assholes to a segment of the population, to disregard laws and discriminate freely against those they dislike.   Can we say 1950 amem.   Hugs

Trump Admin Sues Grocery Giant Kroger Over Firing Of Two Staffers Who Refused To Wear “Rainbow” On Apron

NBC News reports:

The complaint was filed Monday by the  EEOC on behalf of Brenda Lawson, 72, and Trudy Rickerd, 57, who both worked at a Kroger store in Conway, Arkansas, for several years before being fired last spring.

The two women were allegedly disciplined and eventually terminated after they refused to wear new aprons issued last April that featured an embroidered rainbow heart on the top left portion of the bib.

The lawsuit states that both women “believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible” and “hold a sincerely held religious belief that homosexuality is a sin.” Lawson and Rickerd both, it continued, each “believed wearing the logo showed her advocacy of the [LGBTQ] community, which she could not do.”

There is more at the link above and I think it is time we worry about the white supremacist Christian takeover of the US government.   Hugs
