I usually can laugh at some of the tidbits that Kyle at Right Wing Watch posts, because the fundies overreach way too often in ways that are hilarious.
However this post about David Barton and Seven Mountains Dominionism is downright scary. It sounds like something out of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
As we have explained before, Seven Mountains dominionism seeks to place Christians in control over the seven forces that shape and control our culture: (1) Business; (2) Government; (3) Media; (4) Arts and Entertainment; (5) Education; (6) Family; and (7) Religion. The reason for this, as Lance Wallnau, the leading advocate for Seven Mountains theology, explained is that Jesus “doesn’t come back until He’s accomplished the dominion of nations.” And the way “dominion of nations” is accomplished is by having Christians gain control of these “seven mountains” in order to install a “virtual theocracy” overseen by “true apostles” who will fight Satan and his Antichrist agenda.
In the past we have caught people like Porter teaming up with Seven Mountains advocate Cindy Jacobs and praying for God to give Christians control over the media and government mountains. We’ve even found David Barton sharing the stage with Jacobs. In fact, later this month both Barton and Garlow will be joining other Seven Mountain Dominionists/Spiritual Warriors for an event called “Government Transformation Summit For Visionary Leaders” [PDF] in Texas.
But Barton has tended to keep his ties to this movement under wraps and we had never heard him explicitly advocate Seven Mountains Dominionism … until today on his radio program.
You have to click over and listen to believe it. Kyle also noted that this kind of shite is being bleated by prospective GOP Clown Car occupant Mike Huckabee, who said that all Americans should be forced to listen to Barton’s messages – at gunpoint if necessary.
