Sex Money and Politics

For many Conservative Christians, virtue equals wealth. Listen to almost any televangelist and you'll hear that money, power, happiness and prestige are all due their loyal least until Jesus returns and punishes corrupt liberals who've been advocating for birth control, sex education, equal rights and the homosexual agenda.

Power seeking and control have replaced the notion that God sides with the poor and oppressed. America is seen as God's Promised Land. Watch Fox News and you'll discover that military spending is a virtue, spending on social services for the poor an abomination. The most outrageous example of lust for power disguised as Christianity is The Family or the "Fellowship." Here's author Jeff Sharlet from an interview on the Daily Show back in August talking about this organization.
