>Just ran across this:
Nope, don’t think I’ll be attending. Besides the hokeyness of it, it’s promoted by the Chalcedon foundation – a “Christian educational organization devoted to research, publishing, and promoting Christian reconstruction in all areas of life.” Sound good, but not so much. Here’s a little more (from Wikipedia – not always the best source, to be sure):
“In presenting a theonomic view of biblical law, the foundation is often referred to as promoting theocracy and dominionism. According to the group’s web site:
We believe that the whole Word of God must be applied to all of life. It is not only our duty as individuals, families and churches to be Christian, but it is also the duty of the state, the school, the arts and sciences, law, economics, and every other sphere to be under Christ the King. Nothing is exempt from His dominion. We must live by His Word, not our own.
The Chalcedon Foundation has been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.”
Certainly Rushdoony, the founder, held pretty strong racist views. Besides that, he looks like Count Dooku!
