I suggest taking Patheos overall with a grain of salt; there are hundreds of contributing authors, and not all of them are equally authoritative. I have checked out the background on this, and it coincides with everything else I have seen about members of Trump's cabinet. Drollinger's group, Capitol Ministries, has been on the radar of Right Wing Watch since at least 2011. Read their write-up on the group HERE.

Trump Cabinet Plots Christian Theocracy During Weekly Bible Study Meetings

Dreams of a Christian theocracy: Members of Trump’s Cabinet are participating in weekly Bible study meetings with a controversial pastor who wants “disciples of Christ” to take over the government.

A recent report via Fusion explains that key officials in Trump’s Cabinet are attending weekly prayer and Bible study meetings that are being led by Pastor Ralph Drollinger, a controversial right-wing pastor who preaches a message promoting a conservative Christian theocracy for theU.S. Drollinger’s weekly, hour-long “Cabinet Member Bible Study” is held in the Department of Health and Human Services every Wednesday morning, and is well attended by prominent members of the Trump Cabinet.

Fusion reports:

Vice President Mike Pence, HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, nominee for Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, HHS Secretary Tom Price, and Scott Pruitt, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, have all sponsored the Capitol Ministries Cabinet Bible study, according to literature put out by Capitol Ministries.

Drollinger is a controversial figure with strong anti-woman, anti-gay, and anti-Catholic views. Writing for Fusion, Brendan O’Connor notes:

Drollinger has variously proclaimed that Catholicism is “the world’s largest false religion,” that female legislators who continue working after having children are sinners, and that homosexuality is an “abomination.” He has also written that social welfare programs are un-Christian. “It is safe to say that God is a Capitalist,” Drollinger once wrote, “not a Communist.”

Raw Story reports Pastor Drollinger is dedicated to “making disciples of Christ in the Capitol” and spreading Christian fundamentalism among U.S. leaders.

Drollinger’s recent book, Rebuilding America: The Biblical Blueprint, is a blueprint for a Christian theocracy, and purports to answer the question, “What is the biblical prescription to Making America Great Again?”

Bottom line: Trump’s Cabinet is filled with radical Christian extremists engaged in weekly Bible studies with a controversial pastor who wants “disciples of Christ” to take over the government and turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy.

Why We're Here

“The denunciation of injustice implies the rejection of the use of Christianity to legitimize the established order.”
― Gustavo Gutiérrez

Simply put, we are here to shine a light on the hidden activities of those who would remake the US or any nation into a Christian theocracy, and come together to resist these agendas.
