A little help...
inb4 NYPA

I have been justifiably called out for the following claim, and I'd appreciate help (or ridicule if I'm wrong).

Cruz, Bachman, Santorum, and Palin are religious nuts who are expecting the return of Christ in our lifetime.

yah facebook.  Are they or are they not all Dominioninsts, and do we have proof, or is my claim over the top?

Thanks.

I've seen all of them referred to as dominionists.  I'm not sure, but I think Catholic dominionism may be a different flavor of dominionism.  It's a different sort of eschatology from most dominionist Protestantism End Times strains/narratives.

I started looking at the first two, and objectively it could go either way.  I revised my claim.

This might be useful:

Palin, Perry, and Bachman are named in the first paragraph.

Thanks, but it's Facebook, and a pain to go find an old thread, so meh.
