18. I'm not sure about Falwell or Robertson specifically
I'm talking generally about American millenarianism. As for scholarly support, check out Boyer's book, which unlike Cohn, is a really entertaining read.

As for why I post on subjects like this one, could be because history's my area of interest, and in particularly the history of millenarianism. I can't think of a single person in the field that believes that the Falwells and Robertsons pose a threat parallel to the Nazis.

Again, I'm not saying that there aren't parallels, and I'm not saying that the Dominionists aren't a threat and aren't deeply disturbing. Anyone familiar with the cases popping up at the Air Force Academy in CO, and officers such as Boykin, can see that right wing religious fundamentalism in the armed forces is a real problem.
