Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, was the subject Salon.com articles examining his ties and activities with Dominionist and Reconstructionist leaders, and Talk To Action looked at the endorsement of Huckabee by hate-monger Joseph Fuiten.
From Joe Conason's "Holy Constitution!"
Back in 1998, when he was still serving as governor, [Huckabee] helped write "Kids Who Kill," a short book purporting to analyze the outbreak of school shootings by teenagers. His coauthor was George Grant, a well-known militant Christian reconstructionist author, activist and educator. That same year, the libertarian Reason magazine published an exposé of reconstructionism titled "Invitation to a Stoning," which identified Grant and quoted him on the movement's ambition for "world conquest." Scorning the moderation of other conservative Christians, Grant explained, "It is dominion we are after. Not just a voice ... not just influence ... not just equal time. It is dominion we are after."
Ideas like the ones some of Huckabee's supporters hold stem from two radical doctrines, reconstructionism and dominionism.... [T]hese ideas come down to "the notion that America, indeed every nation on earth, is meant to be governed by biblical law." Additionally, they stem from a belief that the United States was founded as a Christian nation, then betrayed by secular humanist liberals who created a myth of separation of church and state in the 20th century, leading the country to immorality and godlessness, and that the United States must be taken back by Christians. Some of the proponents...advocate a return to the practice of stoning as a method of execution, and expanding this death sentence to the crimes of homosexuality, blasphemy and cursing one's parents.
The article gives an introduction to key dominionist figures including D. James Kennedy, George Grant, Janet Folger, Pastor Rick Scarborough, Michael Farris, Don Wildmon, Steven Hotze, James Robison.
Talk To Action looks at Joseph Fuiten and other dominionists endorsing Huckabee, as well as Huckabee's recent, outrageously anti-democratic and anti-republican pronouncement (also the springboard for the Conason article in Salon) to amend the Constitution to no longer be a document based on ideals of English common law and the Enlightenment, but on the bible.
