Rushdoony's Loonies 

Southern Poverty Law Center; Intelligence Report, Winter 2005:
Mark Rushdoony

Draped in a stark black suit with a shiny gold cross pinned to its lapel, Mark Rushdoony peered down from the pulpit through glasses tinted the color of hellfire.

"We are authorized by God to challenge all that is not godly!" Rushdoony thundered. "God is angry with the wicked every day, and the sins of the wicked deserve the infliction of God's wrath in this life as well as the life hereafter!"

Rushdoony was the keynote preacher at a symposium held in September at the Chalcedon Presbyterian Church in Cumming, Ga., to observe the 40th anniversary of the Chalcedon Foundation, the ultra-fundamentalist Christian ministry founded in California by Rushdoony's late father, R.J. Rushdoony. The elder Rushdoony was a racist and Holocaust denier who took his group's name from a medieval council of bishops that proclaimed the subservience of all nations and governments to God.

The Chalcedon Foundation has since become the fountainhead for Christian Reconstructionism, an obscure but growing branch of Christian fundamentalism whose adherents believe the world should be "reconstructed" so that everyone in it lives under strict Old Testament moral codes imposed by local theocracies.

There is no room for democracy in Reconstructionism, and no tolerance for dissent.

"To oppose us is to attack God's law," Mark Rushdoony testified to nearly 200 followers from four states, "and to attack God's law is to attack God himself!"

I wonder what Rushdoony's policy is on cartoons? Perhaps "Loonies" is too disrespectful a choice of words here? Afterall, one wouldn't want to offend the delicate cultural and religious sensibilities, laws, and customs of the Christian Reconstructionist community; and consequently God himself! Heavens no.

Dominus Restituere
From the mouths of theonomists. What follows is a Christian Reconstructionist persepective on national, even international, renewal. A call to revival and reformation of all aspects of society. Note the recurrent themes emphasized below and recall how many times you have heard many of these very same themes repeated by politicians, preachers and media mountebanks over recent years.

Far out on the desert to the north dustspouts rose wobbling and augered the earth and some said they'd heard of pilgrims borne aloft like dervishes in those mindless coils to be dropped broken and bleeding upon the desert again and there perhaps to watch the thing that had destroyed them lurch onward like some drunken djinn and resolve itself once more into the elements from which it sprang. Out of that whirlwind no voice spoke and the pilgrim lying in his broken bones may cry out and in his anguish he may rage, but rage at what? And if the dried and blackened shell of him is found among the sands by travelers to come yet who can discover the engine of his ruin? ~ Cormac McCarthy Blood Meridian
