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.”  The 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.
