 My own fight with theocracy in America has largely been in the arena of the "culture wars", fighting for legal rights for gay and transgender individuals for the past 18 years. I used to be heavily involved in the [livejournal.com profile] dark_christian LiveJournal community, then in 2008 I created the Outing Dominionism group on Newsvine, a site later bought by MSNBC. I moderated that group until 2013, when changes to the site rendered it all but unusable for its original purpose. Then, more than a little burnt out and thinking that with Obama in office and same-sex marriage finally legalized in 2015, we had broken the back of Dominionism in American politics, I stepped away from the fight. It wasn't until the violence in Charlottesville this year that I realized we needed to keep fighting Dominionism and its white Christian nationalist vision of America. With Newsvine slated to shut down in October, I created a new version of the Outing Dominionism group on Reddit and began to gather information and current resources, which I've been loosely organizing into the start of a wiki for the subreddit, though there's still room for a lot of work. I'm very glad to find this group and be able to add it to that list of resources, and I'm looking forward to learning more here and sharing what information I can.

Welcome to [community profile] anti_theocracy.

My hope is that this community can become a place for discussion, awareness-raising, information-sharing, and support for all who are opposed to the deeply theocratic agenda of the Christian religious right. I'm still getting the comm set up, but I'll post some information pieces soon, and try to find some avenues where we can let people know we're here.

Welcome, and please read the posting guidelines (On our profile page here), before posting.

Thanks,

P.S. Feel free to make an 'introduce yourself' post if you are so inclined!

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.
