Christian Soldiers in America’s Fight for Theocracy


The true face of #sharialaw in America and the greatest threat to our democracy is the Christian Theocrat.
Seeing this photograph I made from the recent Pro-Trump rally in Seattle and remembering the Christian overtones and warlike atmosphere reminded me of this song we sang in church, a song that I sometimes led the congregation in singing. “Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before

Onward then, ye people
Join our happy throng
Blend with ours your voices
In our triumph song

Christ the royal master
Leads against the foe
Forward into battle
See His banners go… ”

There is no peace when you stand on an intolerant, immovable and irrational position. When you come speaking peace but carry a gun and wear body armor. When you alienate and demonize your fellow citizens because of your personal religious beliefs you are the problem.

#fundamentalism is here in America and Religious Elitism is the problem.
