Spiritual Totalitarianism

"To the Religious Right, the Bible mandates that fundamentalist Christians assert control over society at all levels," writes Rob Boston of Americans United for separation of Church and State. "This viewpoint leads some extremists to embrace what can only be called spiritual totalitarianism."

A document issued by the Coalition on Revival, a group aligned with Chris­tian Reconstructionism, stated bluntly, “We deny that anyone, Jew or Gentile, believer or unbeliever, private person or public official, is exempt from the moral and juridical obligation before God to submit to Christ’s Lordship over every aspect of his life in thought, word and deed.”
