The Family, by Jeff Sharlet, is on my reading list after hearing him on the radio earlier this week, and his description of this secretive but wide-spread CINO cult, that both adulterous Senator Ensign & incompetent & M.I.A. Governor Sanford are members.
The cult's head, Doug Coe, is quoted as referring to King David as follows:
" "Hey, you know what's interesting about King David?" ... "King David," David Coe went on, "liked to do really, really bad things." He chuckled. "Here's this guy who slept with another man's wife — Bathsheba, right? — and then basically murdered her husband. And this guy is one of our heroes." David shook his head. "I mean, Jiminy Christmas, God likes this guy! What," he said, "is that all about?"
"Because he was chosen," I said. For the first time David looked my way.
"Yes," he said, smiling. "Chosen. Interesting set of rules, isn't it?"
These self anointed douche bags are convinced that they are "God's Chosen People", since they believe that the Jews have fallen from "God's grace" it's now their cult's, er... I mean... group's responsibility to do Gawd's work. They despise churches, since churches help the poor and are not focused upon strengthening "the Chosen Ones" grip on global power. They can be summarized somewhat, as "trickle down Christianity" - once they are in power, including various dictatorships and sham democracies globally, they believe that their policies, their faith in Jesus, will cause good Christian people everywhere to do good acts, be more Christian, and make the world a better place. These plutocrats make the Bohemian Grove sound main stream and tame.
