Christian Right = Driver Seat of America

Some dispute the "Dominionist" groups as nothing to worry about, but yet again reports reveal just how intertwined the Bush Administration and Christian political advocacy groups are.

The Village Voice got its hands on an email from the National Security Council's top Middle East aide to an apocalyptic group called "Apostolic Congress". The email reveals consultations between the two entities over Israeli policy.

Just like Richard Land, this group enjoys a weekly conference call with top aides.

Oh, and to prove to my Christian brethren that there isn't a theocratical movement afoot, I give you these two paragraphs from the article:

When Pastor Upton was asked to explain why the group's website describes the Apostolic Congress as "the Christian Voice in the nation's capital," instead of simply a Christian voice in the nation's capital, he responded, "There has been a real lack of leadership in having someone emerge as a Christian voice, someone who doesn't speak for the right, someone who doesn't speak for the left, but someone who speaks for the people, and someone who speaks from a theocratical perspective."

When his words were repeated back to him to make sure he had said a "theocratical" perspective, not a "theological" perspective, he said, "Exactly. Exactly. We want to know what God would have us say or what God would have us do in every issue."

I feel good... how about you?
