Dominionism, Part 2

Well, I’d almost forgotten about this, but there’s a fantastic report on the rise of Dominionism in the US here, originally brought to my attention awhile ago by Mr. Furious, to give credit where credit is due. This report was written by Katherine Yurica, an investigative reporter with expertise in the politicization of the religious right, who was also commissioned by the House Subcommittee on Oversight of the House Ways and Means Committee to complete a study as part of their investigation into whether television and radio ministries were violating their tax-exempt status by virtue of their political activities.

Basically, she’s no dummy. And no hyperbolic conspiracy theorist.

“The Despoiling of America: How George W. Bush became the head of the new American Dominionist Church/State” is a long article, but well worth your time to read—and, clearly, far more comprehensive than I would have been able to put together in short order. I’m interested to hear the thoughts/reactions of anyone who takes the time to check it out.
