Hillary's Other Family

On the way home from work today, the right wing shithead on the radio was ranting about Barack Obama's statement of last week,( which was last week, asshole) trying to milk the dead cow for all it's worth because he knows that all the Republicans have is John McCain, who doesn't know Shi'ite from shinola. It must be embarrassing for these people to be in the same boat as Hillary Clinton.
Sunday, when a reporter asked Hillary when was the last time she attended church she replied
"That is not a relevant question for this debate," Clinton said. "We can answer that some other time. I went to church on Easter, so . . . but that is not what this is about."

Of course, a news report from Easter Sunday had this to say:
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama took a much-needed rest from their presidential campaigns on Easter Sunday as their tight race for the Democratic nomination looked set to drag on for months....
Clinton took Friday through Sunday off from active campaigning and was scheduled to resume events in Pennsylvania on Monday.

Obama, who campaigned in Oregon on Saturday, was taking a vacation with his family and would not return to active campaigning until Wednesday in North Carolina. A spokesman declined to say where he was spending his vacation.

One place he did not go for Easter was his Chicago church, Trinity United Church of Christ, which sparked controversy for the Illinois senator because of inflammatory sermons made by the pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

The media, which has been so soft on Obama, made it a point to announce he wouldn't be at church while simultaneously reminding people of the last faux-controversy, statements his preacher has made.But it mentions nothing about Hillary attending church.
But if she did, she would be attending services presided over by her spiritual leader, Doug Coe, who has stated:
“Jesus says, ‘You have to put me before other people, and you have to put me before yourself.’ Hitler, that was the demand of the Nazi Party. You have to put the Nazi Party and its objectives in front of your own life and ahead of other people!”

“I’ve seen pictures of young men in the Red Guard of China, a table laid out like a butcher table, they would bring in this young man’s mother and father, lay her on the table with a basket on the end, he would take an axe and cut her head off.”

“They have to put the purposes of the Red Guard ahead of the mother-father-brother-sister—their own life !”

Doug Coe is the leader of the 'Fellowship', or perhaps more ominously, 'the Family', a network of sex-segregated cells of political, business, and military leaders dedicated to “spiritual war” on behalf of Christ, many of them recruited at the Fellowship’s only public event, the annual National Prayer Breakfast. (Aside from the breakfast, the group has “made a fetish of being invisible,” former Republican Senator William Armstrong has said.) The Fellowship believes that the elite win power by the will of God, who uses them for his purposes. Its mission is to help the powerful understand their role in God’s plan This from someone who called Obama an elitist? perhaps, he is not "elite" enough?
The whole idea of a secretive cult calling themselves 'the Family' conjures up images of Charles Manson and Co., apocalyptic visions of 'chosen people', doing "God's will" should scare the crap out of anyone who isn't blissed out on belladonna.And how a church of the elite isn't relevant to a member of said church who called someone else an elitist is anyone's guess.

i have heard some things about Hillary's church as well. I'd much rather hang out with Rev. Wright.

I think they all sound interesting to hang out with, but not as steadfast friends. To cure the effects of the berries one uses the same potion used to combat nerve weapons exposure. Every trip to the gulf has resulted in numerous idiots who think they might get high off their atropine injector kit, they have all been wrong, as it is pure speed. Not in a meth way, but in the " I wish I had not injected the atropine into me without need" kind of way.

Kee-rist, that's some scary shit. What other president felt that he was put into power by God?

How'd thatg work out?

Um...I don't know what bible "The Family" reads, but the version I read tells me to honor my parents, not chop their heads off. That definitely sounds cult-like.
