Excellent read, lots of background info. Thanks.

Coincidentally, just last night I was adding some new organizations to my database and ran across one that is mentioned in the article as being a major player in all this, the Institute for Religion and Democracy. As usual, a very innocuous, even positive sounding name that hides a rather nasty agenda.

There are a huge number of organizations and "charitable foundations" with their tentacles in this stuff. It's sobering once you begin to see the far-reaching network and enormous amounts of money being poured into the right-wing & culture war agenda. And I'm only talking about from a U.S. perspective—I've only barely scratched the surface WRT global connections as I don't have the time to find, read through, and collect that much data.

These people aren't playing around. Those who would dismiss them as addle-brained fanatics incapable of being a serious threat need to educate themselves. Someone like Rick Santorum didn't get to where he's at by a fluke.

At present you'll have to come to New Jersey to do that, heh.

Apropos of this, there was a flap here in China some months ago about Focus on the Family types pushing their abstinence-only sex ed program in Chinese middle schools. Chinese people already have enough hang ups about sex and sex ed. The last thing they need is puritanical Christian messages besides.

There are times when I am sympathetic to the Chinese government quashing "home churches" -- independent groups -- in favor of the "official" churches.
