You need to read the teachings of Rousas John Rushdoony & Reconstructionism. His teachings have been embraced by D. James Kennedy [dead], James Dobson and others just to name a few. I have been acquainted with both, having tithed to them many years ago. Listened daily to them on AM radio for many years too. Now seeing through all their hype, I have "disowned" them because they believe in Rushdoony's teachings.
I'll still defend and embrace ALL that Mel states in his book because from all the brain washing I had to endure [thank God, never embraced] I know it's true.
Another GREAT book with incredible insight:
"The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power": Jeff Sharle
Sorry to disappoint you but Mel's book IS ON THE MONEY.
We can keep this discussion on going and defend our theories till Hell freezes over
but since 1976 having given my life to Jesus Christ BUT NOT fundamentalist diatribe and knowing my Bible and the teachings of all the evangelicals in Mel's book [as I said, having tithed to many: BTW, even gave $400 once to Pat "Rubberhead" aka Robertson], their patriarchal roots run so deep it's sad & scary. They could never accept women in power as in President of the USA [Hilary?
] and are afraid of giving women their right place in society: along side men.
That's why they are sooooo afraid of Homosexuality . . . one man "assumes" a feminine role in the relationship and that scares them. Simplistically speaking.
Just look at what is happening in this campaign race!! Trying to put women back more than 5 decades of accomplishments!! Santorum and Akin <> need I say more.
Just investigate further, MEL IS RIGHT, HASN'T EXAGGERATED AND HIS FACTS CAN & ARE BACKED UP. From one who has been there and now is "FREE AT LAST, GOD ALMIGHTY I'M FREE AT LEAST!!
