The Religious Right is engaged in a vicious war against LGBT people worldwide. However, their main goal is to take over nations and turn them into totalitarian theocracies. Here is the playbook that these extremists use to accomplish their goals:

1.  Find inflammatory wedge issues and scapegoats to divide people and force them to choose sides.

2. Persuade people to join your righteous “team” in its effort to purify society. Demand absolute loyalty and obedience to that team’s leaders (even above allegiance to the state)

3. Identify and cultivate key major donors to fund mission. To reward their support, back conservative economic policies

4. Create parallel infrastructure and institutions (i.e. private education, conferences, think tanks, and charities)

5. Build an insular media cocoon to disseminate propaganda. This vast echo chamber is contemptuous of contradictory facts, suspicious of reason, and impervious to mainstream media scrutidouthat_7mountainsny

6. Infiltrate society’s major institutions in a clandestine effort to undermine, influence, and ultimately control (See 7 Mountains Movement: government, education, family, religion, entertainment, business, and media)

7. Facilitate the decline of secular government by deliberately and persistently creating crises in confidence and eroding trust in venerable institutions

8. Oppose all gun control laws and tacitly encourage local militias, so in the event of insurrection fundamentalists are the most well armed sector of society

9. Constantly agitate and manufacture havoc, because theocracy can only be attained amid chaos. Without a functioning central government, the shadow infrastructure created by fundamentalists makes them the best situated to fill a vacuum, restore order at the price of liberty, and install their regime

10. Export model abroad: Send influential emissaries and dedicated missionaries; deploy basic services to create dependence; and dispense money to acquire strategic local alliances; while organizing key international gatherings and fostering opposition at The United Nations
