  •  it's the opposite of dominion (7+ / 0-)

    There are Biblical passages saying that God put humans in charge of the Earth, and the key words can be translated either as "dominion" or as "stewardship."  

    That's a difference that makes a major difference: the difference between dominating and taking-care-of.   And it's no surprise that the word "dominionism" comes from the "dominion" branch of that fork in the road.  

    This could break out into open theological warfare, if the "stewardship" branch could just organize itself sufficiently to stand up to the "dominionism" branch and call them out for their sadistic theology (stoning to death included).  

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
