Will PBS Become the Protestant Broadcasting System?

Your Crackpot Theory deserves a 1. I’m working with Christian documentary directors John Fuller and Karen Drohan who are doing a lot of research on Dominionism. Here’s what I learned from them:  

"I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag, and to the Savior for whose kingdom it stands. One Savior, crucified, risen and coming again, with life and liberty to all who believe."

If a radical group of Fundamentalist Christians has their way, this will be the oath your children will be forced to recite everyday in their Christian school.

They have a plan for this world. They believe that every man is a sinner.  Only God and His son Jesus Christ are perfect. Laws created by man are not valid in their eyes. Biblical law is the only true law. And every Christian on earth is commanded by G-d Almighty to destroy the sinful, secular, unchristian societies created by man and replace them with the one truth: a global Christian theocracy, led by G-d's chosen to prepare the way for the return of the one true king, Jesus Christ, Lord of Lords.

These Fundamentalists are known as Dominionists, and they may be the most dangerous religious movement you've never heard of. Their doctrines are shocking to ordinary Christian believers, and to most Americans. But the unprecedented growth of conservative religious influence in American government is due in no small part to the dogged persistence of this extreme, radical group of ultra-right-wing conservatives. And everyone from Pat Robertson to George W. Bush is listening.

It’s hard to accept that fumbling, bumbling Bush and Company can out-organize and outsmart us. But they do it over and over again... Read on
