Considering Rushdoony and Dominionism

Much has been said over the past few months about Dominionism and the threat of a theocracy. Yet the vast majority of critics of Dominionism appear to know next to nothing about theology and Christianity.

A common bogey-man of the "Religious Right" is R.J. Rushdoony, founder of the Chalcedon Foundation. I am not a proponent of Dominionism/Reconstruction but have learned a bit about it from a friend. I read an interesting quote on the webpage of the Chalcedon Foundation this evening.
“No government in any form can make men Christians or truly obedient; this is the work of God's sovereign grace. Much less should civil government try to impose Biblical law on an unbelieving society. Biblical law cannot be imposed; it must be embraced.”

Is this what so many on the Left are afraid of? This doesn't sound like theocracy to me.
