Fighting Theocracy With Theocracy

By Elisha Dorfsmith

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”

–Sinclair Lewis

A new Christian battle cry is ringing throughout the land and spreading like a virus through Facebook, blogs, message boards, and emails. It says:

“Islam is not protected by the first amendment because Islam is not a religion…it is a theocracy!”

These anti Muslim crusaders go on to say that “The Constitution is inseparable from Christian principles.”

Onward Christian soldiers! The best way to fight theocracy is by supporting a theocracy of your own…right?

Christian groups and leaders have been pushing for a theocratic form of government for years:

They have fought to ban certain speech because they find it offensive and contrary to their religious values.

They use the bible to justify their support for a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage.

They use their religion to support the failed drug war.

They use the old testament to justify and support the death penalty.

Their holy book says that Israel is God’s chosen nation so they blindly support wars that protect Israel’s interests over our own.

In a nutshell, many American Christians would support making Christianity the national religion and forcing their values on other religions or those with no religion. Don’t believe me? Go read the archives of the Christian Coalition, the Moral Majority, or even Focus On The Family. A Christian theocracy is the ultimate goal.

I personally could care less what religion is attacking my personal freedom and trying to force it’s way of life on me. The Constitution not only protects all religions in this country but it also protects me from any religion that pushes for a theocratic form of government. Islam and Christianity are both wrong for trying and I refuse to allow either to take away my liberty.

    I have had a lot of questions on Facebook about where Christians are trying to ban speech in America. Here’s an example of the attacks on free speech that I was talking about:

    Notice a trend here. Pornography is not protected by the first amendment. Islam is not protected by the first amendment. Whatever we don’t like is not protected by the first amendment.

    Here is another link about banning video games:

    There are many other examples I can give. Many of these Christians want to ban violent films, blasphemous books, and “offensive” art. I can give more links if needed.

    As with any group it is the extremists that people focus on.

    Not all Muslims are the same.
    Not all Christians are the same.
    Not all Athiests are the same
    Not all ________ are the same.

    Not all Liberals are the same.
    Not all Conservatives are the same.
    Not all Libertarians are the same.
    Not all Authoritarians are the same.

    Judge no one by the label applied to them but by the individual actions they take,
