Imago Dei Theology vs Fascism


Big sadness on me seeing the neo fascists getting big in the US. I generally blame the lack of quality philosophy and history courses in US high schools.

I've been watching these trends for a long time in non mainstream corners of the internet. Its a big mistake to think of these people as "someone other" or alien to society.

The theology that I think speaks most to the situation is known as Imago Dei: we bear a likeness to God, whether unsaved or saved; ideas and doctrines that argue for inferiority of one human vs another are consequently disqualified from the discourse, as all have the stamp of God on us. It's probable that there are other doctrines as well which interlock to reinforce the point, but this, I think, is sufficient.
