Could I suggest that anyone who longs for a utopian Christian State inspired by the Bible should read Margaret Atwood’s: “The Handmaid’s Tale”, or at least look up its Wikipedia entry at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Handmaid‘s_Tale
I came across it some years ago and was reminded of it on the radio today. The story tells of a dystopian society of the future, based on rigorous adherence to the Bible, as told in the diaries of a woman who can remember the time before the new regime. As so often happens when power is vested in a certain part of society, who are able to enforce their supremacy, the good intentions degenerate into a repressive and unequal society. Quite chilling. When it was written in 1985 I suspect people would not have believed just how parts of society had developed by the early 21st century. It's perhaps a salutary warning of what could happen without healthy dissent. Echoes of current fundametnalist sects of many varieties, both in the developed and developing World.

(scan down to Margaret Atwood). Well worth a listen for more insight into the author's inspiration and intentions with this book.
Read the book if you can!
