The links between Tea Party Extremism
and Bob Jones Sr. type Churches
The Indiana Klan was a branch of the Ku Klux Klan, a secret society in the United States that organized in 1915 to affect public affairs on issues of Prohibition, education, political corruption, and morality.
Evangelicals, want a society ruled by those who know what the word of God is. The technical name for that is theocracy
This is not an attack on religion, fundamentalism is not a religion it’s a description of a type or attitude towards religion. It’s also not an attack on any church other than the one listed in this article, Grace Gospel Fellowship. Bob Jones Sr. calls for the establishment of Independent Baptist or Bible Churches having no authority higher than the Bible and the local elders of the Church Like Westboro Baptist Church, all other churches can disavow a Church whose teaching they find objectionable or embarrassing> These Churches also often stress and call themselves “Non Denominational” and make it sound the most reasonable thing in the world, in some cases this may be but be wary. These Churches can be nests of Extremism and the concept follows the decentralization of the Klu Klux Klan after it’s assets were seized.
Interestingly, from a historical perspective Fred Phelps (Westboro Baptist Church) was from Kansas home of John Brown and the Abolitionists of Harper’s Ferry fame. Bob Jones Sr. is from South Carolina, (though his home Church was in North Carolina) and would say that the Bible does not call for the abolition of slavery.
