Yesterday's episode of NOW with David Brancaccio did a good job of describing Dominionism. First, Brancaccio interviewed Chris Hedges who accurately described Dominionism as a "militant biblicism" that declares the U.S. to be a "Christian Nation" and seeks to make "biblical law" the law of the land. Then he interviewed a Dominionist -- former Alabama Judge Roy Moore.
Transcripts of the interviews and online video of the broadcast should be up next week. If you missed the broadcast yesterday, I encourage you to read the interviews or watch the broadcast.
Everyone ought to see Roy Moore's more than creative explanation of the denial that "the United States of America was not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion" in Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli (1797). He said something to the effect that all the treaty meant was that the U.S. was not the kind of Christian Nation that would engage in crusades.
