New York Times on Evangelical Cabal

ConfederateFlagPatriotPastorsI saw this coming in 1990 when evangelicals took over Lowell, a small town her in Oregon. 60 Minutes did a segment which I have not been able to find. Their cosmology asks for much destruction and the death a billion people or more. They want the safety-net removed to this end.

In this blog you will find many posts where I giving warnings Christine-X is out to destroy the Democrats and Secular Government. I had 143 visitors yesterday who read over three blogs on the average. unfortunately some of my Liberal friends did not take me seriously. One of them, went over to the dark side believing these wing-nuts are empowering Israel and the Jews. Members of my family also subscribe.

Yesterday, The New York Times revealed in great detail how the Conservative Action Project has orchestrated the current showdown.

“This blog has taken the position on numerous occasions that far right evangelical Christians – those I refer to as the Christofascist – present a clear and present danger to America’s constitutional form of government. They want to destroy the United States Constitution and the structure of government it created and they most certainly want to deprive all but themselves of the right to freedom of religion. They want a Inquisition like theocracy to replace the federal and state governments with, of course, themselves in control. These people wrap themselves in the American flag, but by trying to subvert the Constitution and our constitutional form of government, they are little better than traitors and anarchists. A piece in The Nation looks at some of the foul elements of the evangelical Christian far right (not surprisingly, anti-gay hate groups are among them) who are playing a role in try to subvert the United States Constitution and destroy both America’s and the world’s economy in the process. Here are excerpts:

At Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse, a small shop next to Union Station and around the corner from the Heritage Foundation, “fair trade” coffee is dispensed and Christian books are available for customers to read.

A group of political operatives and evangelical firebrands behind the strategy to shut down the government over healthcare reform couldn’t have picked a more unassuming meeting place. Though the more famous “Wednesday meeting” is across town at the offices of Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform, the shutdown plotters often meet at a weekly lunch held on Wednesday at the event space of Ebenezer’s. (The group also meets regularly on Wednesday mornings at the offices of the Family Research Council.)
This other Wednesday group is a convening of the Conservative Action Project, an ad hoc coalition created in the early years of the Obama administration to reorganize the conservative movement.
The coalition is managed by Heritage and the Council for National Policy. The latter organization, dubbed once as “the most powerful conservative group you’ve never heard of,” is a thirty-year-old nonprofit dedicated to transforming the country into a more right-wing Christian society. Founded by Tim LaHaye, the Rapture-obsessed author of the “Left Behind” series, CNP is now run by Christian-right luminaries such as Phyllis Schlafly, Tony Perkins and Kenneth Blackwell.

Marc J. Ambinder of ABC News said about the Council: “The group wants to be the conservative version of the Council on Foreign Relations.” The CNP was founded in 1981. Among its founding members were: Tim LaHaye, then the head of the Moral Majority, Nelson Bunker Hunt, T. Cullen Davis, William Cies, and Paul Weyrich.[4]
Members of the CNP have included: General John Singlaub, shipping magnate J. Peter Grace, Edwin J. Feulner Jr of the Heritage Foundation, Rev. Pat Robertson of the Christian Broadcasting Network, Jerry Falwell, U.S. Senator Trent Lott, Southern Baptist Convention activists and retired Texas Court of Appeals Judge Paul Pressler, and the Reverend Paige Patterson ,[5] Senator Don Nickles, former United States Attorneys General Ed Meese and John Ashcroft, gun-rights activist Larry Pratt, Col. Oliver North, and philanthropist Else Prince, mother of Erik Prince, the founder of the Blackwater private security firm.[6]

Yesterday, The New York Times revealed in great detail how the Conservative Action Project has orchestrated the current showdown.

The group has played a background role in several high-profile political debates. It was this rival Wednesday group that gave rise to the farcical “Ground Zero Mosque” conspiracy in 2010. The Conservative Action Project also played a consequential role in whipping up opposition to a number of key Obama judicial nominees, including judges David Hamilton and Goodwin Liu. Through rapid-fire memos and coalition advocacy, the Conservative Action Project can claim large responsibility for the fact that Obama has been deprived more than any modern American president of appointing judges of his choice for the federal bench.

But like the quagmire that GOP leaders find themselves in today, the hard-charging Conservative Action Project has bristled at establishment criticism in the past. Notably, it was the Conservative Action Project that first courted controversial Senate candidates like Christine O’Donnell and Joe Miller.

Many of the leaders involved in this effort are well-known Christian conservative icons, including “Christian Zionist” and former presidential candidate Gary Bauer and Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, an activist famous for his over-the-top attacks on the gay community.

The group has engaged in clashes with libertarian-leaning GOP leaders, particularly Norquist. That is not to say the group is not well connected with well-heeled interest groups.

Kevin Gentry, a key employee of Koch Industries’s lobbying subsidiary Koch Public Sector, has served on the board of CNP. Gentry now helped to run the new $250 million fund for conservative advocacy groups called Freedom Partners and manages the twice-annual secret gatherings for Charles Koch’s cohorts. (It was at a CNP gathering that Charles Koch once compared himself to the theologian Martin Luther.)

Let’s be clear about something. These are not nice people or nice organizations. They are motivated by religious extremism and unlimited greed and a lust for power. They deserve no respect or deference and the general public needs to be educated about their toxic goals which ought to scare the daylights out of women, gays, non-Christians of all faiths, and anyone who believes in science and knowledge. Those who prostitute themselves to these people – like Congressman Randy Forbes – need to be challenged and forced to end their alliegance to these forces of hate, racism and greed.
