Re: I’m a Dominionist

by Ramesh Ponnuru

If critics of “Dominionists” focus on Christian Reconstructionists, then the criticisms will be mostly deserved. But most people will understand that we’re talking about a small group of people with almost no influence. If, on the other hand, they want to use the term to insinuate that people who oppose abortion or take some other conservative position on social issues are sinister and dangerous, they will fail to persuade anyone who isn’t already deeply opposed to social conservatism. In that case, the campaign against “Dominionism” will be just like the criticism of “Christianism”: both intellectually lazy and politically fruitless.
