They believe they're intended to lord over it all. As a first step, they're leading an "army of God" to commandeer civilian government.

    CHRISTIAN RECONSTRUCTIONISM, DOMINION THEOLOGY AND THEONOMY
    "These belief systems find a voice in Christian Reconstructionism -- a political movement to convert the United States -- and eventually the entire earth -- into a theocracy in which dissenters, adulterers, sexually active homosexuals, some sexually active bisexuals, witches, sorcerers, etc. would be exterminated."

    Perry, she said, had just held a prayer event with "a specific Christian political movement...that seems to want a Rick Perry candidacy to be their political vehicle."

    I fear for this country.
    I think he is going to give Mitt a fight, and I won't vote for this guy... no way.

    In neither case is the individual judged on his merits. In both cases they are tarred with the brush of group identity.
    This post is nuts... Bush ruined the Texas GOP and the Bush name. Yes, he was that bad.

    No it does not. I recently moved to Atlanta from Michigan, and the culture of whites and blacks is significantly different. I live in a rich gated community right now. The blacks here are significantly different from the blacks in the inner city of Atlanta(so are the whites). This is not complicated stuff. Race is a minor aspect of what people are.

    Race and position are irrelevant. The individual should be judged. If we are going to compare Perry to "other Texas governors" should we compare Obama to Illinois senators and deem that he's a mob driven corrupt individual solely based on his position prior to president?

    My race isn't a suite of attributes... My culture is American. If you directed this post towards me personally, about my ethnicity, I'd be offended.

    From what I saw of his announcement today, Rick Perry is a shoe in for the GOP nomination.

    I sense a movement in the force. The cognitive dissonance is strong in this one.
