    It wouldn’t surprise me one iota, if all of the above was true.

    The real summer activities of The Fellowship beggar the imagination. The “C Street” group sends conservative Christian congressmen abroad to befriend tyrants who run other nations. That’s right — the Fellowship has a foreign policy and pays U.S. officials to pursue it. The Fellowship Foundation paid for 20 lawmaker trips, most to the Middle East and Asia, since 2000 according to Legistorm.

    In years past Fellowship sent Christian congressmen as emissaries to pray with muslim dictators Suharto of Indonesia and Siad Barre of Somalia. The organization’s tax filing claims its purpose is “To work with the leaders of many nations” but that seems a bit extreme.

    I don’t imagine anyone would be foolish enough to take C Street travel money this August, but you never know ….

    Isn’t Mark Foley teaching something this year? Or does the Fellowship restrict its membership to members that fool around with women?

    We are not aware that former congressman Mark Foley was a Fellowship member. He certainly might have been attracted by the name of the affiliated organization, Youth With A Mission. If Mr. Foley were to teach at Vacation Bible School we imagine it would be on “Suffer The Little Children.”

    Mike, thank you for pointing out Coe – I’d no idea he was so prominent around D.C.

    Doug Coe is intentionally a stealth figure, working with “cells” of the rich and powerful through the Fellowship. His name surfaces verbally at the annual so-called National Prayer Breakfast but he even keeps off the official roster at that event.

    I’ve posted about these jokers, too. If it were just Coe and the Family (um, I guess, Family), they would just be another fringe group with delusions of world domination. Unfortunately, they’ve pulled in actual US Congressmen (albeit legislatively irrelevant (I’m sorry, I guess the PC term now is “Republican’) ones. OK there are a few Dems, but who are we kidding) to their group. At minimum, they warrant watching. Especially if you’re a girl looking for a good time (sorry, couldn’t resist).

  9. DMMZ Says:

    Until I read Doug Sharlet’s, The Family, I had little to no clue about the rabid designs this group (The Fellowship) has for the country and the world for that matter. I had to wonder, “where have I been for the past 50 years”, until I realized that this is a secret organization with a secret agenda. Is there a particular reason why the media has played ‘hands off’ with the C street gang? It’s high time they were revealed for what they are.
