Jody Hice: 'Most People Think Islam Is A Religion, It's Not'

A Baptist minister is standing for the US congress. The odds are very high that he will be elected .

. . . "Most people think Islam is a religion, it’s not. It’s a totalitarian way of life with a religious component," he said. "But it’s much larger. It’s a geo-political system that has governmental, financial, military, legal and religious components. And it’s a totalitarian system that encompasses every aspect of life and it should not be protected [under U.S. law]." Hice didn't stop there. "This is not a tolerant, peaceful religion even though some Muslims are peaceful. Radical Muslims believe that Sharia is required by God and must be imposed worldwide," he said. "It’s a movement to take over the world by force. A global caliphate is the objective. That’s why Islam would not qualify for First Amendment protection since it’s a geopolitical system ... This is a huge thing to realize and I hope you do. This will impact our lives if we don’t get a handle on it." He also doubted the compatibility of Islam and the Constitution. "These things are in no way compatible with the U.S. Constitution ... Islam and the Constitution are oceans apart," Hice said. "It’s about controlling your behavior, when and where you can worship and legal issues. The number one threat is to our worldview and whether we chunk it for secularism or Islam."

Most people think Christianity is a religion, it’s not. It’s a totalitarian way of life with a religious component. But it’s much larger. It’s the Kingdom of God breaking into governmental, financial, legal and religious components of life. And it’s a totalitarian system that encompasses every aspect of life and it should not be protected [under U.S. law]. This is not a tolerant Kingdom but it one that is called to the path of peace & humility. Radical Christians believe that Christ's rule over all things is required by God and will eventually be worldwide. It’s a movement to take over the world. A global Kingdom without boarders is the objective. That’s why Christianity would not qualify for First Amendment protection since it’s a geopolitical system ... This is a huge thing to realize and I hope you do. This should impact our lives but we often don’t get a handle on it. I also doubt the compatibility of Christianity and the Constitution. These things (The sermon on the mount) are in no way compatible with the U.S. Constitution ... Christianity and the Constitution are oceans apart. It’s about conforming your behaviour to Christ your behaviour, how you can worship and legal/economic/political/heart issues. Christianity is a "threat" to the powers of this world and that is why it will always be easier to accept Islam, secularism or nationalistic religion clothed in church language instead.

Oli, as I am English I am not qualified to talk about your First Amendment. That apart I am in general agreement with your comment. Would you describe your view as theonomy or reconstructionism?
