This should frighten us all. Trump's attorney general wants god's moral order enforced by government

As the nation lurches closer towards being ruled by a tyrannical dictator with unwavering support from the Republican Party, the American people are ignoring an even greater threat to their waning secular democracy – rule by tyrannical theocrats.

The rise of theocrats in powerful positions of authority is particularly disconcerting because not only was America created as a secular nation with a secular Constitution, but because the theocrats running the federal government represent a very small minority of the population. And now Trump has given that vicious minority what they elected him to do in the first place; another radical Christian extremist, William Barr, in a powerful federal government position.

J. Beauregard Sessions was a legitimate threat to America’s secular government as Trump’s attorney general, but his theocratic aspirations paled in comparison to Trump’s latest theocratic cabinet member – a conservative Catholic malcontent who is unlikely to ever defend the U.S. Constitution because it is a secular document. It is noteworthy that Sessions only stated that, according to his mind, the separation of church and state in the Constitution is a concept that is unconstitutional. However, his replacement ardently believes that America’s government is duty-bound to enforce god’s laws because there is no place for secularism.

In a 1995 essay, Barr expressed the extremist Christian view that “American government should not be secular;” secularism is an abomination in Barr’s theocratic mind despite the law of the land is unmistakably secular. Furthermore, Barr contends America’s government is supposed to be imposing “a transcendent moral order with objective standards of right and wrong that flows from God’s eternal law;” eternal law best dictated by the Vatican and taught in public schools at taxpayer’s expense.

1. It is frightening

I hope Barr gets a lengthy stay in John Mitchell’s old cell.

2. These Christians are about as far from whatever it was Christianity stood for when it was once

thought to stand for things that might be worth supporting.

3. As Christians, one should be following

those words in Red.

THE EIGHT BEATITUDES OF JESUS

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

Gospel of St. Matthew 5:3-10

Barr needs removing in any way possible.

5. It is frightening and disgusting.

The Family have been working on this goal for 7 decades.

Not only are they trying to turn the U.S. into a Theocracy, they

are interfering in over 100 countries with the same goal.

Russia has been on the top of their list.

Trump being elected caused jubilation for The Family and Evangelicals

They push anti gay and union busting the world over.

They think the wealthy are chosen by god to rule.

It does not matter if they rape, steal, or lie.

The Family stands behind the chosen.

They think the poor are chosen by god to be poor.

They are sick and twisted mother fuckers.


P.S. Available on Netflix: The Family. A 5 part series that explains their goals in detail.

The National Prayer breakfast is put on exclusively by The Family.

They are EVIL and the greatest threat this country has ever faced.

The majority are republicans, but there are also some democratic politicians involved.

7. It is frightening. It really has nothing to do with moral order at all. K&R for visibility.

8. Barr a Bully

When William Barr was nominated by George Bush Sr. to be attorney general in 1991, I got a jolt of post-traumatic stress. The announcement flashed me back to personal victimization by Barr that I had not thought of for 25 years. “Could it be,” I wondered, “that the sociopath from my childhood is really about to become the highest legal official in the land?”
