The Family at C Street Horror Show

I just blundered onto the scariest things I’ve ever read concerning our government and religious fundamentalists. Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) and Gov. Mark Sanford of SC have both been linked to the C Street House run by a secretive, conservative religious group called the Family that seems to have strong political connections all over the world. All of the inside information on the group and the house seem to come from a single source; Jeff Sharlet, a journalist who stayed in the C Street House for a month and then wrote the book “The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power.” Here’s a link to an interview with Sharlet in the “Las Vegas Sun” and a video of part of the investigation being done by “The Rachel Maddow Show.” See what you think.

There's nothing sinister about the C Street Fellowship. The group just believes that "love thy neighbor" trumps the Ten Commandments if you're rich, white, male and Republican.
