The Family behind C-Street

If you're curious about the origin and secrecy surrounding the Christian group, "The Family", click here.

C-Street, whose fellowship included Mark Sanford and John Ensign, is owned by a foundation affiliated with The Family.

Sorry, Dan Brown. Jeff Sharlet's already got dibs, w/his new book, The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power.

Why isn't the Justice Dept doing something about The Family and C Street? It seems seditious to me, and in violation of tax codes. I think they could be put out of business on several bases -- and from recent events, it would seem a worthwhile thing to do. The whole Prayer Breakfast thing is a crock of crap, whether you are religious or not; it is just a public parading of piety -- and that is very rapidly becoming very passe. Come on Mr Attorney General -- get to work.
And Mr Obama, why don't you stay in Washington for a prolonged period and get some real work done, huh? So far, I ain't got much to show for my vote for you.

C Street and these hypocrits that live there should be kicked out- $600/ month??

Coburn and the rest are right wing christian(?) wack jobs.

Bribing Ensign's girl friend- what a joke - and they are paid with tax payer dollars!

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.

mrmyster: Just what exactly did you expect to get for your vote for a 2 year Senator whose most abiding connection over the years has been that of his love and practice of Saul Alinsky methods? Please...what? I am a life long Democrat and Barack Obama has been and is both a fraud and a yes man ...not a leader.

So much for separation of church and state! The problem is, once religion gets into our politics, politics will surely get into our religion. The question is... whose religion? If we have a Baptist, Catholic, Methodist, Jewish, Mormon, Muslim, or Atheist president, does that mean we all have to practice their religious views? Be careful what you wish (and vote) for. You may not like what you get.
