"The long-term goal of Christians in politics should be to gain exclusive control over the franchise. Those who refuse to submit publicly to the eternal sanctions of God by submitting to His Church's public marks of the covenant--baptism and Holy Communion--must be denied citizenship, just as they were in ancient Israel."
Is the above in keeping with your Christian principles?

No, and neither is it in keeping with 99.9% of homeschoolers.
Thus this article and the POS who posted it should be removed. But he's your old buddy, so you'll defend this anti-Christian screed instead of defending your fellow Christian.

What is amazing to me is the folks that cannot see the difference between Christians who are political... and power hungry tyrants using the trappings of religious ideology to gain power over other people POLITICALLY.
After two years of discussing talibunnies, you would think we would recognise the "stone the sinners" crowd on a forum like this and across the nation. Dominion theology is wrong. Jesus said he would build his church. These folks want to take his job and hijack it to build political kingdoms for themselves... an Ozzie and Harriet eternal garden party where all who do not toe the line... are stoned, marginalized and ostracized... just like the whores and lepers of Jesus' day were treated by the Scribes and Pharisees.
We are allowing some private religious schools to train up these "punish all sinners" brown shirts, right here in America, while criticizing the president for not shutting down the sharia schools in Pakistan.
Chanellor is on to something here.
I know dozens of Christ honoring freepers on this site who see it just this way too. they see the dangers of the religious zealots posing as Christians, and bringing our religious freedoms to a halt... one day because of their virtual terrorist outlook.
Some folks who don't agree with stem cell research, openly discuss attacking schools, research centers and medical personnel with acts of violence. One day, when a kid who is under their tutelage actually does the deed... the circle will be complete. Christian extremists will have fully become the very thing they criticized in the islamic nutcake society... aka the talibunnies and al quaeda wearing crucifixes instead of turbans and burkas.
We can love Jesus, believe his words, and follow his commands without ramming down other's throats at gunpoint... or under the aegis of federal laws.
I don't believe these folks are actually Christians... wolves in sheeps clothing... maybe. Tyrannists in the making... definitely. CP and others are right to point these links and writings out.
