Christian Dominionism: Another Name For Fascism. Steve Williamson, Karen McClelland, and Stephen Hanks welcome Jennifer Cohn to the show to discuss a rapidly growing worldwide authoritarian threat posing as Christianity.
Cohn is an election security advocate and prolific essayist who recently authored an article in a Pennsylvania newspaper, the Bucks County Beacon, about a rapidly growing worldwide theocratic movement. The movement known as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), which was originated by C. Peter Wagner, is determined to take control of all aspects of our society – government, business, and culture – in order for Jesus to return to Earth. Of particular concern, convicted and pardoned felons Michael Flynn and Roger Stone, along with numerous other Trump acolytes such as the My Pillow guy and other MAGA supporters seem to have formed an alliance with the movement.
The merging of such authoritarian advocates with theocrats presents a real threat to the future of our constitutional republic. Especially concerning is the fact that a number of GOP candidates, such as Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano have espoused NAR talking points.
As Cohn points out, the NAR movement has already permeated much of America’s political and cultural life, and the movement is growing at an astonishing rate. In fact, it is now the fastest growing religion and the largest non-Catholic Christian faith. And it’s inextricably tied to Trump.
In her article, Cohn writes, “Leading NAR apostles are blatantly pro-Trump, and claim their view is supported by God, whereas opposition to Trump is satanic.” Indeed, NAR apostle Lance Wallnau claims that “Fighting with Trump is fighting God.”
