If Radical Christians ran America....
...and some say they practically do right now, what would that America be like?

I shudder to think.

1. I though you meant
true christians, those who actually follow the teachings of christ as opposed to the old testament. The world actually might not be too bad, if the christians focussed on Christ instead of Paul, or the Old TEstament folks.

2. Depends on the kind of radical we're talking about
Radical leftist Roman Catholic nuns chain themselves to fences around nuclear missile silos. I wouldn't mind seeing more of that kind of radical.

7. In that case...
RUN FOR THE HILLS!!

Seriously now, though, I recall an article I read, I think in Salon maybe, a few years ago. The author had lived with, oh shoot, I really don't recall exactly the how and why, but her point essentially was: "The vision these people have is not inherently evil; they have this fuzzy vision of everybody living together with six to eight kids in a marriage that starts at 18 and ends 50 years later. The catch is that this is required, and if you don't want to live this life, you are punished not only with eternal damnation but with prison time."

4. you've got front-court seats. It's a bit titillating, like a horror show.
Grab some pop-corn and enjoy the show. Forget for a minute that we're all getting screwed in the process. This is history in making.

5. To See The World Of The Future, Read "The Handmaid's Tale" By
Margaret Atwood.

It reflects a future dystopia where woman become truly subservient as Dominionist theory demands.
