I cannot help thinking that Generation Joshua is a front for the new Hitler Youth movement. Generation Joshua is a Christian youth organization dedicated to turning young Christian boys and girls into conservative Christian political activists. Their goal is simply stated. They intend to return America to her Judeo-Christian Foundations. Of course, this translates to working against reproductive rights, including contraception (if you can believe it). They are also dead set against gay marriage, well gay anything really. but it goes further, they would love to see morality laws enacted to criminalize consensual sexual behavior conducted outside of a traditional marriage, and some sexual activity conducted inside the marriage.
The New Hitler Youth focuses on home schooled evangelical and fundamentalist Christians. They offer online courses aimed at teaching the real intent of the Founding Fathers and the real meaning of the Constitution. The best and brightest can go on to Patrick Henry College and then on to internships in Congress and at the White House (7 already). To attend Patrick Henry College one must sign a pledge saying the devil is real and that they believe in the biblical version of a 6 day creation. It is all very scary, and very real. (more on PHC here)
The New Hitler Youth is run by Ned Ryun, son of Republican Congressman Jim Ryun. Congressman Ryun’s is the most conservative member of Congress and a fundamentalist Christian who is known to have spoken in tongues at a 1996 campaign rally.
People ask why I push back against Christian hegemony. This is why. This well-meaning group of pious children is a direct threat to my liberty and values. They intend to roll back the clock to "a better time". Right... a time when an atheist could be jailed or even worse. It pays to watch your enemies.
