Christofascism (the name being a portmanteau of Christianity and Fascism) is a concept in Christian theology first mentioned by Dorothee S lle, a Christian theologian and writer, in her book Beyond Mere Obedience: Reflections on a Christian Ethic for the Future in 1970. To S lle, Christofascism was caused by the embracing of authoritarian theology by the Christian church. According to S lle, it is an arrogant, totalitarian, imperialistic attitude, characteristic of the church in Germany under Nazism, that she believed to be alive and well in the theological scene of the late 20th and turn of the 21st century. Usage of the term became much more prominent in 2006-8, as a backlash against increasing usage of the word Islamofascism by conservatives in the USA such as David Horowitz.
