Hillary Clinton's Fascistic Religious "Connection"

For 15 years, Hillary Clinton has been part of a secretive religious group that seeks to bring Jesus back to Capitol Hill.

While much has been made of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s rhetorical depredations of the American way, and McCain’s endorsement (or visa versa) of the fundamentalist viper Rev. Hagee, little attention has been paid to Hillary Clinton’s religious affiliations. Her close association with a quasi-religious cult termed “the Family” is perhaps more troublesome than either Obama’s or McCain’s religious imbroglios. “The Family” is the name given to a coterie of religious fanatics akin to the Roman Catholic “Opus Dei” that covets political power and wields immense influence in Washington D.C. and other foreign capitals. Exposés of the Family and it’s head Douglas Coe, and Hillary Clinton’s involvement with and support of the group, have recently been published in Harper’s, Mother Jones and The Nation. This is an extremely insidious group of which we all should be more aware. It seems that no matter who gains power in Washington we will continue to have a fanatical religious agenda foisted on an unwitting populace.

Another victim of the inquisition

Be it suicide or murder the death of the so-called “DC Madam,” Deborah Jeane Palfrey, is a tragedy. To think that consensual sex between adults is still considered a criminal offense in our society is nearly beyond belief. Like the criminalization of drugs, the criminalization of adult sex allows abusive practices to develop and flourish. The drug dealer and the pimp are manifestations of criminalizing normal human behavior. People have been utilizing psychotropic drugs for millenia as a means to alter states of consciousness for both religious and purely hedonistic reasons. Prostitution in various guises has been an integral part of human society from time immemorial. These are human behaviors that must be accepted but regulated to ensure public safety.
