A while back I researched the Christian Coalition (CC) and its major influence on the Rupublican Party. Since the Regan era, the CC has grown not only in popularity but also in influence. Most experts on the influence of religion and politics state the the CC has had the single most influential effect on policy in the United States than any organization since the Caltholic Church. This may not seem suprising, it may seem easy to trace, but there is a lot that is not being told.
First let me start by giving a history of the CC. The Christian Coalition was founded in 1989 as a way to give Christians a voice in their government again. You can read more about it here and I urge you to do so. Doing so will help in understanding the enormity of what I am about to tell you. Anyway, most of us know about that part, simple easy to understand. What you don't know unless you do research is that it was founded by many Christian Leaders and partially funded at its inception by a late 60' 70' Cult leader.
Now before I get to the scary part, and trust me you will never look at our leaders the same way again,let us look who now are members of the CC. You undoubtedly have heard of these persons in the last 10 years, especially since the Bush regime took office. Here is a list.
Pat Robertson, Jerry Fawell, Dr. James A. Dobson, Timothy La Haye ( author of the "Left Behind" series), Bill Bright, Paul Crouch, Rev. Billy Graham, Dr. D. James Kennedy, Phyllis Schlafly, George HW Bush, George W. Bush, Dr. Robert Shuler and his Son, Ralph Reed, Sonny Purdue, Fred Phelps (self proclaimed Fag Hater), Pat Buchanan, John Ashcroft, Gary Bauer, Charlton Heston, Beverly LaHaye, Alan keyes, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Tom DeLay... I could go on... but let me give you this SUPRISE, it is a list by the CC for the 2004 elections, a scorecard on who the CC backs as a viable candidate. And these politicians that the CC backs are members of the CC, convienent huh? So now that you know the background and players, are you ready to be as frightened as I am?
Remeber I said that the CC was founded by Pat Robertson? He is the freakish televangelist who owns CBN and the 700 Club. Well Guess who was his financial backer to start this political action committee? Any guesses? Anyone? Buhler? He was considered one of the largest CULTS in the world in the mid to late 70's, He is currently a Billionare multi times over. He has major influence in ever country in the world presently, He has had the last 3 Republican Presidents speak at some of his engagements, and he wants to Rule The World! Who is he?
The Reverend Sun Myung Moon
Does anybody remember the "Moonies" that used to sell the roses and pictures on the street corners for the "Unification Church"? Well he is a CULT leader and currently has his claws on our government. DOn't Believe me... Go research it. This is SCARY and we need to do something. WHAT CAN WE DO? I AM FRIGHTENED
