Over the past three decades since the early 1970’s, there has been the deliberate manipulation of significant segments of the population, most of them undoubtedly sincere believing people, around the ideology of ‘born-again’ evangelical Christian Fundamentalism to create what we now refer to as the Christian Right or Dominionists.

The book was the translation by Gia Fu Feng and contains beautiful black and white nature photos by Jane English. I was pleased with this gift and was eager to dive in get acquainted with the Tao Te Ching. Wow, it was so mysterious to me at first. I had very little understanding of what these eighty one ideograms meant and how they could apply to my life.

Evangelicals/Dominionists are pursuing a dual strategy on public schools. They want to destroy them and turn education over to private religious schools and in the meantime, they want to control every aspect of public school curricula.

It is well known that the Religious Right are out to turn the world to Christ and what better way to do it than by using the biggest and strongest military in the world?

If the Dominionists succeed, most mainstream Christians, atheists, agnostics, some Catholics, Muslims, LGBT and many others in our society and the world will be affected by their policies.
