The Religious Right vs Secular Liberalism

Today is Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I heard a clip from a radio show where a religious right-wing activist, a guy named Swanson, attacked the Girl Scouts for being communists and lesbians, and pleaded with listeners not to buy Girl Scout cookies, ‘the food for idols.” ┬áThe whole thing struck me as so wrong and so perverted as a political message that I had to do some reading and research about the religious right. I read about ‘Dominionism’ and its role since the late 70s in the American political process and discovered this recent article by Chris Hedges. He says it so much better than I ever could, so I’m going to share the article with you here.
