Joel's Army believers are hard-core Christian dominionists, meaning they believe that America, along with the rest of the world, should be governed by conservative Christians and a conservative Christian interpretation of biblical law. There is no room in their doctrine for democracy or pluralism.

No room in "Joel's Army" for democracy, pluralism, or the 21st century
We probably won't hear about this movement in the mainstream press, nor will we hear that other Christians are concerned about it. If it gets discussed, it will be elided with "Christianity" in general, more uninformed Christians will assume this shit is what their religion really teaches, and more secular Americans will see in this more proof that religion per se, rather than manipulative religion, is the problem.
