Audio: The Secret Political Reach of ‘The Family’
Here’s a great example of what I mean when I say the religious right has a stranglehold on the GOP: NPR’s interview with Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power — a book I highly recommend. This is no conspiracy theory; it’s all very well-documented and very disturbing.
Among other subjects, Sharlet discusses The Family’s influence behind an effort in Uganda to institute the death penalty for homosexuals: The Secret Political Reach Of ‘The Family’.
Bad craziness on steroids.
