It is no small thing that Sally Quinn, doyenne of religion at The Washington Post
, seems to have turned around on the problem of dominionism.
In a recent column at The Washington Post, where she is the founder and co-editor of On Faith online, Quinn wrote about the serious problems of divisions in the military, pointing in particular to rape and proselytization. In the case of the latter, she highlights the problem of "dominionism." If this signals a trend, it is a sea change at the paper, whose featured religion writer Lisa Miller was a noted contributor to the literature of pooh poohery about both the New Apostolic Reformation and dominionism.
"'Dominionism'", Miller wrote at the time, "is the paranoid mot du jour."
It is good to see these issues getting fresh traction Inside the Beltway. Let the debate that Miller et al sought to squelch -- begin now in earnest. The constellation of issues related to religion in the military has long been reported and discussed on this site. Noted blogger Ken Bernstein at Daily Kos has taken the conversation forward. I hope others will as well
