Christian Right Dominionists:
A Growing Threat to U.S. Democracy

RealAudio

Interview with Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter,
Chris Hedges, author
of "American Fascists: The Christian Right
and the War on America,"
conducted by Scott Harris

christianright

Pulitzer prize-winning reporter Chris Hedges, author of the acclaimed book, "War, A Force That Gives Us Meaning," is a Harvard Divinity School graduate and the son of a Presbyterian minister. In his new bestseller, "American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America," this former New York Times foreign correspondent argues that the Christian Right in the U.S. resembles the young fascist movement in Italy and Germany in the 1920s and 30s. Those political movements, he asserts, like the Christian Right, often masked the full extent of their drive for totalitarianism and were willing to make concessions until they achieved unrivaled power.

In recent years, conservative Christian groups and their political allies have asserted their power. Through their influence in Congress, this religious coalition has moved the Supreme Court to erode women's reproductive rights, worked to block gay marriage rights, defied family members and the courts in the grotesque case of brain-damaged Terri Schiavo, attacked the power of judges -- and attempted to introduce the teaching of "Creationism" in public schools.

Observers say that with millions of dollars from the Bush administration's taxpayer-funded, Faith-Based Initiative (S.476) and a growing number of TV and radio stations under their control, the Christian Right is on a course to gain evermore influence in government and the nation. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Chris Hedges about the warning he issues in his book that Dominionist Christians, who seek to establish a Christian state, are now waiting for an economic, social or political crisis, to move to replace America's democratic form of government.
