Instead of borrowing the name of an Islamist group, why not give the term Dominionist the currency…
Frank Hoffman

“Dominionists” are the only category of evangelicals I know who want to set up a theocracy. Every other branch of evangelical theology I know about understand the separation of roles between the church/Christian community and the government. What this article is doing is taking a small minority subset, attaching to it the violent aspects of the Taliban (Dominionists are not violent, nor do they advocate violence) and then placing all of that onto “evangelicals” as a whole. It’s a gross, offensive, and unhelpful misrepresentation of other people.
