More on Snakes Fornicating

On February 8th, 2009, I wrote a review (of sorts) in the Ramble of an amazing book that exposes the workings of a secretive Christian group that is methodically developing a political choke-hold on our nation and the world. The group, known among themselves as "The Family," provides guidance and support (emotional and financial) to politicians whom they see as having been preordained to lead our country, or any country for that matter, into the service of the Lord. They have supported totalitarian dictators whose aims complement those of The Family, and boast an admiration of the way Hitler organized his power. They jokingly refer to themselves as the "Christian Mafia." This is the group that originated the National Day of Prayer that Obama slighted.

The book is The Family by Jeff Sharlett, a young man who went undercover and lived in one of the houses owned by The Family in the Washington, DC, area. The clandestine religious group generally uses these houses to provide members of Congress with cheap (free?) places to live and to have Christian fellowship with other like-minded members.

One of the residences owned by The Family is a place known as "C Street." If the name sounds familiar, it may be because the residence called C Street has figured in the sex scandals surrounding Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Senator John Ensign of Nevada. Sanford has admitted that he had been working with C Street for months regarding his infidelity. Engsign actually lived at C Street. It was revealed today that his roommate, Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, and others of the seven Congressmen residing at that residence had attempted to take control of Engsign's love life and extricate him from the affair - even though he did not apparently want to be extricated.

One of the ways that The Family exerts its power and influence is through the direct exchange of cash between individuals - without any messy transaction records - things that might be audited or, God forbid, taxed. Their modus operandi of shuffling around cash seems to have at least provided a game plan for getting Ensign clear of his Mistress - if not some of the actual cash itself. Apparently the Republicans living at C Street knew that he had employed her son at the National Republican Senatorial Committee as a way of keeping his lover's family in cash.

C Street is officially listed as a church - undoubtedly for tax purposes.

As someone who read The Family and was appalled by the group's accumulation of wealth and power, I must admit to being somewhat amused as these stupid sex scandals are having a very real result of shining a light on this secretive and, to my way of thinking, sinister society.

The Family by Jeff Sharlett is now out in paperback. Buy it, read it, and pass it on. It is a startling and breath-taking look at the slow and systematic subversion of our government by a radical group whose sole purpose is to bend America and the world to its religious will.
