American Vision

Gary DeMar’s vision of America is a country without homosexuality.

American Vision was created in 1978 by Gary DeMar, a prominent Christian reconstructionist, as an educational resource to assist in disseminating information designed to restore the biblical foundation of the United States. In DeMar’s interpretation of history, the United States was established as a Christian nation and democracy should be replaced by a theocratic government completely dominated by Christians who will strictly enforce Old Testament prohibitions. DeMar is closely allied with R. J. Rushdoony, the founder of reconstructionism, Dr. D. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Ministries, and Gary North, with whom DeMar authored Christian Reconstructionism: What It Is, What It Isn’t.

What American Vision Believes

  • Every social failure in American culture must be blamed on homosexuals.
  • In an established theocratic America, homosexuality, gay marriage, and abortion would be strictly forbidden by law.
  • Those found guilty of homosexuality would receive the death penalty. Executions of sodomites would serve society well and help drive underground gays back into the closet.
  • A long-term goal of the theocracy would be the execution of convicted abortionists and those who seek their services.

Activities: American Vision works steadily to lobby state and local governments to pass antigay ordinances.
