And even more chilling is that this means that they have come to believe their own lies or that they believe they are above "mere" facts. This is eerily reminiscent of the Ranters of the 1600s who like all good Calvinist-influenced sects believed success in life (business and politics) illustrated favor by God, and as favored they were good, pure and predestined to be saved and thus not bound by Puritanic rules. It is convoluted, but no more circuitous than Hillary's association with the conservative cult-like group on Capitol Hill. Acting from a position that you are doing X, Y, or Z because you are favored by God is a stance that has no place in American Politics. Don't ask Obama why he attends a Church of Christ, ask Clinton why she is a member of "The Family?" Don't know who the The Family or The Fellowship is? Read on and be very, very frightened. Perhaps today, this Easter, this most sacred of days in the Christian faith, real Christians who follow the teachings of Jesus should finally out the closet fascists hiding under the cloak of Jesus.
"You can find all about it in a widely under-read article in the September 2007 issue of Mother Jones, in which Kathryn Joyce and Jeff Sharlet reported that “through all of her years in Washington, Clinton has been an active participant in conservative Bible study and prayer circles that are part of a secretive Capitol Hill group known as “The “Fellowship,” also known as The Family. But it won’t be a secret much longer. Jeff Sharlet’s shocking exposé The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power will be published in May."
