This is the first of what I plan to be a series of basic introductory articles on core topics pertinent to the religious right. I will be adding source links (to current sources where possible, or to archived sources hosted elsewhere) shortly. As more articles in this series appear, I will also be cross-linking them (e.g. so if dominionism is mentioned, it will link to a post on dominionism, etc.).
These articles are taken from my class notes I have prepared for the courses I teach on the History of Christianity and Christianity in the US. They are @2017, All rights reserved. If you wish to cite or quote any of these pieces, please contact me and I can give you a citable source, since I do not want to use my real name here. Thank you for your consideration.

Rushdoony, who published a massive set of volumes called ‘The Institutes of Biblical Law,” is widely considered to be the father of the Reconstruction movement, as well as the Christian homeschooling movement.

Why We're Here

“The denunciation of injustice implies the rejection of the use of Christianity to legitimize the established order.”
― Gustavo Gutiérrez

Simply put, we are here to shine a light on the hidden activities of those who would remake the US or any nation into a Christian theocracy, and come together to resist these agendas.
