LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY fragiletender)
A student was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct at Kutztown University, PA after a peaceful protest against Life And Liberty Ministries, who were protesting on campus.
Charles Kline decided that the way to deal with them was to use humour so he made a sign that said “Equal Rights for Robots”. Within minutes he was arrested.
Original story here and Charles Kline's own version here.
Unsurprisingly, the group in question has a different take on it - categorising the school as 'intolerant' because they didn't want to be yelled at about going to hell!
I've just done a little digging on the Life And Liberty Ministries and they are a virulently anti-abortion Christian group. I'm still unsure if they are explicitly Dominionist but they are certainly evangelical and fundamentalist. They seem to be mostly focused on their anti-abortion mission but they are also anti-birth control and virulently anti-gay (including equating being gay with paedophilia). There's also a lot of outright lying going on in their birth control pages, including saying that the ordinary birth control pill causes abortion, which is a bit of a red flag. Oh, and they also ride around in a big truck plastered with huge images of abortions on it.
They also have strong links with The Full Quiver Mission and they link to groups like Repent America, both of which do seem to be Dominionist in nature. I know that being quiverful does not automatically equate to Dominionist either but at least one of the Murches, who run The Full Quiver Mission, has called for US states to secede to form a Christian nation, which seems pretty political to me.
I also found this page from The Full Quiver Mission, which shows Denny Green, founder of Life And Liberty at a protest against moving a 10 commandments from the state judicial building in Montgomery, Alabama.
Does anyone have any further information about whether this group can be considered Dominionist? I mean, they sound pretty iffy to me but I know that it's important not to jump to conclusions.
