Written in 2013 , but very timely

In his 1991 book, Christian Reconstructionism: What It Is, What It Isn’t, North writes, “Reconstructionists… do not believe that the will of the political majority is the final law in society.” They believe that the Bible is.

In order to make their vision of society a reality, they are willing to wait a long time and to engage in politics to make it happen. “We are to work at our callings and wait on the Lord to place us in positions of influence in his time,” according to North’s book.

Once in power, they assert their brand of Christianity: “Christian Reconstructionists further insist that Jesus Christ is Lord of political leaders,” he writes. “All political leaders are directly responsible to Jesus Christ in the discharge of their public office, as well as in their private lives… Practically, this means that political leaders should seek the guidance of Scripture in framing their political positions and programs.”

my sister is one of them. I swear if I didn't have that special brand of Republican madness in my own family, I would have a hard time believing they actually exist. but they do.

Those people are completely worthless. Good thing that he is the fringe of the fringe. :p

Hey, if it's good for Israel and Iran, why not the US?

Theocracy seems to be the "IN" system these days, doesn't it? :badgrin:

Israel is more secular than America.
Wow, we've already established in another thread that you are in denial. Now you have gone full bore tilt with your head in the sand. :lmao:

Essay: Israeli Laws and Discrimination

Israel was founded as a JEWISH state, not as a free state for all who live in Palestine. What are you smoking this morning? Seriously?

Secular? gtf outta here. The only person you are foolin' is yourself and other "secular" JEWS. Who by definition, are religious. :blues: (They may have lost their faith, but the hostility to others faiths remain. Thus, it is a cultural theocracy.)

Jews have hostility to other religions?
The Torah forbids this.

Torah might forbid it, but the laws of Israel give special rights to Jews over others. The makes it a Theocracy.


Does Israel run it's Government under the laws of the Torah?
If not then they are not a Theocracy.
Some Muslim countries do and it's called Sharia Law. This is a Theocracy.

As opposed to Sharia Law if you support a Democrat.

Technically, you are correct.
I'm just wondering how many and onerous are those rights in a nation overwhelmingly populated by secular Jews.

If anything, most Rabbinical leaders have a tough time dictating policy outside their own
Congregations.

there's definitely something disturbing & creepy about Ted Cruz that goes beyond what we see in public. this is his daughter & look at her body language & resistance to her own father in the last day or so...
