Conference on Dominionism: October in New York

The Graduate Center, City University of New York and The New York Open Center will once again collaborate to present: Dominionism, Political Power, and the Theocratic Right.

Bush's White House.

I enjoyed the last conference on Dominionism : perhaps, for October's conference, the part of the conference given to action and organizing can be expanded.
