Hi Stephen,
This is off topic but I thought you might appreciate my latest blog post, or rather the video i posted - on the rise of Dominionism (or Christian Reconstructionism) in the U.S. ( Facinating interview with a former NY times writer and theologian Chris Hodges; more than a little unsettling as I think you will agree.

By the by, i really appreciate your blog; it's an island or reason in the sea of absurdity Stephen. Keep up the good work! I will be back at Heythrop in Septermber when my erasmus stint runs out here in Uppsala so we will meet again in Logic. Best regards. Chris Landau

Fantastic blog!
I should say it is a detailed article. Talks about a variety of things - something which I never thought could exist. What I found different in your article is the way you have gone about to explain the topic in a simplistic way.
