The Dominionist political movement in the United States arose in the 1970s as a movement that seeks to establish a theocratic government in the United States, replacing the governance and constitution of the United States with a political and judicial system based on the Old Testament, or Mosaic Law. Dominionism is rooted in Dominion Theology.

Dominionism is closely related to Christian Reconstructionism. Many investigative accounts, found among the external links below, demonstrate that the Dominionist movement is currently very politically active in the United States. The Dominionist movement has been clandestine; As Theocracy Watch points out, the Dominionist movement has been building for more than 30 years, and it has only begun to emerge into American politics.

Theocracy Watch directs us to the writing of prominent Dominionist author George Grant (NOT to be confused with Canadian political philosopher George Grant), who outlines the goals of US Dominionist in the plainest terms:

  • Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a holy responsibility to reclaim the land for Jesus Christ -- to have dominion in civil structures, just as in every other aspect of life and godliness.
  • But it is dominion we are after. Not just a voice'.
  • It is dominion we are after. Not just influence.
  • It is dominion we are after. Not just equal time.
  • It is dominion we are after.
  • World conquest. That's what Christ has commissioned us to accomplish. We must win the world with the power of the Gospel. And we must never settle for anything less... Thus, Christian politics has as its primary intent the conquest of the land -- of men, families, institutions, bureaucracies, courts, and governments for the Kingdom of Christ. (pp. 50-51)

Dominionist organizations have rated a number of US politicians and lawmakers highly. This article will be expanded to include a list of those names as soon as possible.
