Both Eric Cantor and Michele Bachmann have extreme religious beliefs. In Cantor’s Zionism God expressly desires a piece of land in Middle East be ruled and occupied by Jews. Bachmann’s Dominionism asserts that Christians should play a special role in the American Republic. However, the major news outlets have treated their religous beliefs very differently. While it is open season on Bachmann, Cantor’s Zionism is off limits. In a bizarre marriage of extremism, Zionism and Dominionism are joined at the hip; one never speaking a word against the other. But which one is truly dangerous for America?
Zionism and Dominionism – Yes, too very political and very theological viewpoints, neither of which I believe are ‘biblical.’
When people are elected to Federal Office in the United States, they swear to uphold the Constitution, but many today are taking pledges and running on platforms which promise to protect Israel over and above the United States. Why? Bad theology.
