Petition against The Constitution Restoration Act of 2004 sign now

The following petition is anti-theocracy, NOT anti-religion or anti-Christianity. I believe that everyone should have the freedom to celebrate whatever faith they choose, if they should choose to do so at all. A theocracy dictates one's religion and thus removes that choice.

The following petition is against The Constitution Restoration Act of 2004 or HR 3799.

What is The Constitution Restoration Act of 2004 and why am I against this?

It is an act that a group, known as "The Dominionists" are trying to pass, and if they succeed, the country would basically go from a democracy to a theocracy.

What is a theocracy?
"A government ruled by or subject to religious authority" *

Basically saying that no law can conflict with the laws of the chosen religion. A modern example of this is in the Middle East, where no law can conflict with the laws of Islam, only the powers that be have basically taken the religion and twisted it around for their own power and greed.

What is a Dominionist?
A group of religious extremists whose goal is to:

establish "biblical rule" over every aspect of society -- placing "the state, the school, the arts and sciences, law, economics, and every other sphere under Christ..."**

How do they define "Biblical Rule?"
"According to Dominionist literature, "biblical rule" means execution -- preferably by stoning -- of homosexuals and other "revelers in licentiousness"; massive tax cuts for the rich (because "wealth is a mark of God's favor"); the elimination of government programs to alleviate poverty and sickness (because these depend on "confiscation of wealth"); and enslavement for debtors. No legal challenges to "God's order" will be allowed. And because this order is divinely ordained, the "elect" can use any means necessary to establish it, including deception, subversion, even violence." **

So basically, if this act is passed, the powers that be could pretty much do whatever they wanted under the name of Christ, and if someone disagreed or tried to go against the powers that be, they would be punished for they are going against the law, and thus the laws of god. What these laws are - are to be determined and decided by the powers that be. How convenient.

I know. Youre probably saying What?! It sounds absolutely crazy! I almost fell out of my chair when I first heard about it. But, this is all too real, people. This bill does exist and is trying to get passed in congress.

You might even be saying But isnt this is a complete contradiction of the idea of separation of church and state? It is, but keep in mind the following two things. One : we have in god we trust printed on our currency, so how separate are we really? And two: these Dominionists are very powerful people. They are rich. They have vast political connections, including support from the supreme court.

This isn't some small harmless group, meeting up in their basements every Monday night. This is serious. We can not just sit and hope that this does not get passed. We certainly can not assume that it's just TOO radical and too "zany" for it to ever take flight. If you look throughout history, this world has a habit of "zany" things taking place. America is NO exception.

I looked on the internet and already saw TWO petitions asking people to support this act, so that they could "save" the country from some apparent Atheist Coup. "Don't let black-robed tyrants turn America into an atheist state!" ***

Please join me in standing up and against this insane act by signing this petition, and passing this on to as many people you know. Together we make change and stop this act of massive absurdity from becoming a reality!

Thank you.
