Christian Dominionists Build Tent City On DC’s National Mall To Pray Against Liberal Supreme Court Justices

Peter Montgomery reports at Right Wing Watch:

Visitors to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., this weekend will find themselves in the midst of a tent city that is part of what organizers are calling “a historic weekend of worship, prayer and evangelism.” The project—known as “Awaken the Dawn”—will kick off on Friday evening and run all weekend, leading into Monday’s Rise Up rally, the latest in a series of political prayer rallies organized by dominionist preacher Lou Engle under the banner of “The Call.”

Like most Religious Right events, an overarching goal of the weekend’s events is to spark a spiritual revival that will bring America “back to God.” Another goal of the rally’s organizers is to wage spiritual warfare against Supreme Court justices who have upheld women’s right to abortion. Engel has urged people to build up to the event with 30 days of prayer and fasting to prepare to “shift history.” Some prophets have been predicting miracles.

According to the group’s newsletter, the crowd will pray, among other things, for “the removing, resigning, or reforming of four more Supreme Court justices.”

So-called Seven Mountains Dominionists claim to believe that God has decreed that Christians will seize control of the United States in seven areas: government, media, business, entertainment, education, family, and religion.
