An evangelical sect evolves into a political force

David R. Brockman

An evangelical sect evolves into a political force.

Dominion theology, or dominionism, has evolved from a fringe evangelical sect to an influential force in Texas politics, writes nonresident scholar David Brockman. In this article, Brockman explores the dominionist goal of having Christianity shape law and policy, and the dominionist beliefs that have become "part and parcel of right-wing politics at the highest levels of Texas government."
