“Think Of It Like Political Islamism” Ctd

Adam Serwer looks at Bachmann/Perry Dominionism in light of the anti-Sharia crusade:

Perry has ties to the Dominionist New Apostolic Reformation, while Bachmann was featured in a documentary produced by Truth in Action Ministries, whose founder Goldberg explains, has written that "It is dominion we are after. Not just equal time … World conquest.” Don't call it a caliphate. Association with an Islamic-oriented group with similar political goals would be enough to end some nameless government bureaucrat's career, let along hamper someone trying to seek a major party nomination. But conservative enmity towards "sharia" has always been selective, more rooted in religious rivalry and tribalism than any consistent commitment to secular democracy.
