Christian Reconstructionists believe that America's legal system should be based on the Old Testament. Thus, a variety of moral offenses (homosexuality, adultery, fornication, practicing "witchcraft," blasphemy and so on) would be punishable by death. The leading group in this movement is the Chalcedon Foundation, based in California. Although considered a fringe movement, Reconstructionist ideas have influenced many in the Religious Right.
