College of Charleston religion professor Elijah Siegler echoed Butler, saying the movement perhaps is not an imminent threat.

“Dominionism is scary to me because it would overturn so many of the foundations of American democracy: separation of church and state, freedom of religion, religious tolerance,” Siegler said. “It should be made clear, though, that most evangelicals, even ones on the very far right, are not dominionists. And while certain candidates — Palin, Bachman, Perry — have ties to dominionists, to greater or lesser degree, that doesn’t mean everyone who supports them embraces the dominionist agenda.”
