Are Mennonites Taking Over the World?

Are Mennonites taking over the world?

Not likely.

But Mark Tooley wonders in The American Spectator magazine whether Mennonites are taking over a big enough part of Christianity to be dangerous.

Tooley used a recent apology from Lutherans — for violent persecution of 16th-century Anabaptists — to emphasize a “neo-Anabaptist movement” that demands all Christians and society “bend to pacifism.”

He says the views of neo-Anabaptist religious leaders such as Stanley Hauerwas, Greg Boyd, Shane Claiborne and Jim Wallis are “especially pervasive” and “permit a naughty sense of rebellion” — evidence of how the Anabaptist message has mainstream appeal, especially its pacifism.

  1. “Stanley Hauerwas, Greg Boyd, Shane Claiborne and Jim Wallis”

    Well, I don’t know who Jim Wallis is, but if the other three fellas are all of a sudden representative of Anabaptism, we’re doomed.
