Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Hillary and her invisible Pastor

As commentary continues on the media obstacle to Obama's nomination, the Rev. Wright. Steven Brant at Huffington Post has an interesting piece on HRC's association with "The Family." It is a suggestive piece.

"You don't choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend." said Hillary Clinton, to reporters and editors of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on uesday the 25th This is an interesting choice of words, since -- while we mostly hear about her Methodist upbringing -- Hillary Clinton has chosen to associate herself with The Family (also known as the Fellowship), a very conservative, fundamentalist organization started by Abraham Vereide...
"...an immigrant preacher who in 1935 organized a small group of businessmen sympathetic to European fascism, fusing the Far Right with his own polite but authoritarian faithFrom that core, Vereide built an international network of fundamentalists who spoke the language of establishment power, a "family" that thrives to this dayIn public, they host prayer breakfasts; in private they preach a gospel of "biblical capitalism," military might, and American empire...

The Truth is many times more fantastic than fiction. After reading the piece one wonders if Mr. Brant is delving into Conspiracy Theory, but upon closer examination Mr. Brant has done noting more than reveal a series of inter-connected facts about the organization, no matter how implausible they seem. Perhaps the one contention of fact is the level of influence this group has over HRC. The author does draw connections between the groups goals, Hillary's participation with the group and some of her stances - but it's no smoking gun and the author admits that. It's worth a read and worth looking deeper into about this shadowy (heretical) Christian organization that centers on Military Might and Unbridled Capitalism as a way of bringing God's Dominion to the Earth.
