Theocracy Watch: GOP Trying to destroy the 1st Amendment

Max Blumenthal takes us on another shocking trip to the far shores of the Christian right, this time to the 2007 Value Voters Summit. Starring Mike Huckabee, Rudy Giuliani (momentarily in drag), James Dobson, "Lucky Lou" Sheldon, Star Parker, Phyllis Schlafly, Frank Gaffney, and many more of the wingers we know and don't necessarily love.

Joan Bokaer of Cornell University's Theocracy Watch gives a rundown on the growing danger of Dominionism, also known as Christian Reconstructionism, the ideology behind the scenes of Christian extremism in the United States and abroad. An important video for anyone who wants to understand the motives of the American Taliban and what's happening to American politics.
