These fears are probably sensible to unbelievers, but they are not based in reality.
Interesting that you say that. I admit it might be "sensationalized", but there is no question that John Hagee is pushing for war with Iran to bring
on Armageddon, or that Pat Robertson has called for destruction of secularists and progressives similar to what Iwo Jima was like.
It does appear that most
Christians are not all up in arms about what way the world is going - but all one has to do is listen to Limbaugh, or
Glenn Beck, or Sean Hannity, or Fox News in general (which is the puppet of the Republicans, many politicians in that party take advice
Fox News' management and also tell Fox News how they'd like things to be "spun") to see that this thinking is very REAL, it is not a fiction - and it
is a Clear and Present danger to progress.
I have recently learned of the New Apostolic Reformation - an under-the-radar group of manipulators who are very much trying to implement Far-Right
Christian thinking like pulling evolution out of schools, for example -
They are also called The Seven-Mountain Dominionists - and they are not "fiction."
They are the Evangelical Far-Right who are trying to impose their religion onto the whole country and its laws. They admit it themselves. What are
their "Seven Mountains" to "Dominate"?

These are the so-called Charismatics, and they are all over the place. They "claim" to have 400 million followers worldwide. Some of the politicians
involved include Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann Sarah Palin, and arguably Sam Brownback - among others, and they work with the "Apostles" and Pastors
of the mega-churches to incite this "revolution" (more like a Devolution, in my opinion) to make the USA a Theocratic Oligarchy. They're not messing
They believe they can divine what demons are in possession of individuals, institutions, geographical areas -
they call it "Spirit Mapping" - one of their "code words" - also code words like the "City Gates" - which includes, but is not limited to, the
Vatican, the ACLU, and Planned Parenthood - "Spiritual Warfare," 'Warfare Prayer'. They say natural disasters are caused by these demons and/or God
- they actually believe that they "prayed" Mother Theresa to death.
They do 'exorcisms' of the things 'possessed' by these demons. they believe in a demonic heirarchy and territoral spirits, and an occult level as
well as a spiritual level of this 'spiritual warfare.'
A website trying to monitor them is NARWatch: New Apostolic Reformation Watch
