re: #1 Stanley Sea

Thanks, but I just realized I have to redo the title, as I’ve propagated the Fox-spin on this story. It’s not that Inhofe’s aid is a missionary, it’s that a full time missionary is being paid (out of tax money) to be his aid.

Great post. BTW, if I recall rightly, (just as an aside) the Assemblies of God in Africa are extremely fucked up— burning witches, torturing kids, and more. The official assemblies of god are claiming they’re not ‘recognised’ or something, but it’s very definitely the christian evangelical assemblies of god stuff (speaking in tongues, more) transplanted to africa.

Yep. Same folks:
Christian Extremism: Witchcraft, Murder and Child Abuse

Christian religious extremism hits the American psyche when a fundamentalist church— Assemblies of God, which thinks Harry Potter is the gateway to Satanism, while facing charges of child abuse requests a $500,000 earmark from the federal government. Or when Sarah Palin is cleansed of witchcraft by a Kenyan Assemblies of God minister.

This form of religious extremism when exported to Africa kills people and causes rampant child abuse.

re: #4 iceweasel

It does appear as if the American religious rhetoric turns literal out in the missionary fields.

Particularly Africa, yes. Then we hear pious disclaimers about how the American branch of that missionary outreach is shocked, shocked, to discover there is gambling at Ricks.
