AJC: Chris Hedges interviewed; author of American Fascists on Dominionist Christians

Commanded to rule | "When Pat Robertson calls for the assassination of the president of Venezuela, and James Dobson declares that 'the homosexual agenda is a beast -- it wants our kids,' and Benny Hinn announces that one day he will raise the dead if their coffins are placed in front of the TV, a certain segment of the population may grin, or wince. But a different segment of the population is listening intently and not laughing at all.

'For those of us who find all this sort of laughable and buffoonish, it's hard for us to take it seriously, and I think that's our great failing,' says author Chris Hedges 'These people are extremely dangerous.'

Hedges, an award-winning war correspondent, is the author of 'American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America,' in which he claims that Robertson, Jerry Falwell et al. want to take over the country and replace our liberal democracy with a rigid theocracy."
