When I speak of the new Evangelical movement I am not talking about something brand new. I am talking about a dangerous theology that began with people Like Oral Roberts, and was brought to the mainstream by people such as Pat Robertson. It has imbedded itself in various denominations. It is a politically Conservative oriented movement and is poisoning the minds of americans as well as in north african countries. One famous person who subscribes to this belief system is former president George W Bush. Groups like the Christian coalition and the American Family Association. It is a theology that embraces Homophobia, Islamiphobia and censorship. They claim that the constitution does not ban separation of church and state and that their religious beliefs should be the basis of American politics. They also believe that it is their duty to bring about the apocalypse.
There was a book I looked at , at my local walmart(which is a Christian coalition owned store) , that adhered to this theology. It was saying that such things as Illness and poverty, were not caused by things like microorganisms and greedy corporations, but curses from the devil. Talk about being out of sync with the 21st Century, or the 18th century for that matter. It went on to talk about things that were evil and brought about such curses. It included such things as sexual fantasies and masturbation, and not following the Government. So god wants us to grow up to be sexually frustrated psychos who blindly follow the government. Also it listed things that were evil teachings, Besides Just the Usual christian thing of naming all non-christian religions, It also listed Meditation and martial arts. Last thing we want is for our children to have is a balanced mind, discipline and the ability to defend themselves. I could list all the weird and twisted beliefs of the new evangelism, but that would probably take an entire book.
