VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY 3
By Peter Fredson
After arduous examination of political and religious files of the past 20 years, I came to the conclusion that there was a conspiracy to demolish the Wall of Separation between Church and State. I see the effects of this conspiracy daily in the all-pervasive religiosity and militant neo-con corporatism of this nation.
Some people still refuse to see a conspiracy leading to the joining of government institutions with church organizations. They ignore the strategy voiced by George Grant, of Coral Ridge Ministries who states in The Changing of the Guard, Biblical Principles for Political Action:
“Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a holy responsibility to reclaim the land for Jesus Christ—to have dominion in civil structures, just as in every other aspect of life and godliness.
But it is dominion we are after. Not just a voice.
It is dominion we are after. Not just influence.
It is dominion we are after. Not just equal time.
It is dominion we are after.”
“World conquest. That’s what Christ has commissioned us to accomplish. We must win the world with the power of the Gospel. And we must never settle for anything less… Thus, Christian politics has as its primary intent the conquest of the land—of men, families, institutions, bureaucracies, courts, and governments for the Kingdom of Christ. (pp. 50-51)”
Ostrich people, with their heads firmly in the sand, ignore seminal investigations like:

I could point you at several hundred investigations on this subject, but you are all familiar with Google and can access the files for yourself, if you want to know about fundamentalist and political shenanigans leading up to the dismal state of the union today.
Although meetings of top evangelical executives were kept secret, we know their agenda, strategy and tactics. We have the names of several hundred leaders who committed to the strategy of attacking Church and State separation, such as: Rousas John Rushdoony, Paul Viguerie, Tim LaHaye, Don Wildmon, Pat Crouch, (founder of the Trinity Broadcast Network) and James Kennedy, head of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, Gary Bauer, Ralph Reed, Don Wildmon, James Dobson, Paul Weyrich, and the wierd Unification Church Moon. The movement soon tapped ambitious conservative politicians Newt Gingrich, Dennis Hastert, John Ashcroft, Tom DeLay, Dan Quayle, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush. What they proposed is certainly what I would call a “conspiracy.” Look up any of these people and see how they are linked.
With 2004 polls showing the race either tied or with Democratic candidate John Kerry ahead in key “swing” states, the alert to Christian activists went out across the nation by e-mail and in the pulpits and they responded like the good sheep they are.
Millions of dollars exchanged hands in 2003-2004 to achieve Far Right goals. Millions of votes were promised and delivered by sharp shepherds of sheep-like Fundamentalists. Although we know that politicians have notoriously short memories, in the Far Right cause they delivered handsomely.
Critics fondly hope that the True Believers will cancel each other out. Although I have no crystal ball, or astrological tables to guide me, I have done intensive research into how this mess came about, and I worry that a Democracy might soon become a Corporate Theocracy. If you don’t, then perhaps you should worry. Of course, some of you may be perfectly happy to be totally Christianized and assured of your place in the Heavenly Halls, or to let Benny Hinn cure all of your ills. It is certainly comforting to have all problems solved with a “God did it” or a “God will punish sinners.” If so, have a nice life and send your earnings to Pat so he can buy another Ferrari or Lear Jet for the Glory of God.
I believe Bush and his lawyers led to the Abu Gharib torture and abuse scandal, and I believe that George Bush thinks he is above the law. I believe that the invasion of Iraq was not to combat terrorism but to seize oil reserves. I wonder at the objectivity of reporters at ignoring young Bush’s National Guard days and all the attempts of Congress to install Christian icons in public places. I still wonder at the ability of the Far Right to impose a shallow smirking power-hungry prevaricator upon the world as a second junior Jesus, or a third-rate Julius Caesar.
No, I don’t believe the sky is falling but I am profoundly disappointed in the objectivity and education of the American public. Meanwhile we can expect civil rights abuses and the gradual diminishing of national prestige under growing deficits, attacks on the environment and social security, outsourcing, and corrupt faith-based initiatives from the secretive Bush administration in the next 3 years.
May Heaven give you what you deserve!
