Hillary’s ties to shadowy religious group raising eyebrows

After reading the links below, I can’t even believe the Clinton people had the nerve to bring up Obama’s pastor. From Mother Jones via the Dallas Morning News:

For 15 years, Hillary Clinton has been part of a secretive religious group that seeks to bring Jesus back to Capitol Hill. Is she triangulating–or living her faith?…

The Fellowship’s long-term goal is “a leadership led by God–leaders of all levels of society who direct projects as they are led by the spirit.” According to the Fellowship’s archives, the spirit has in the past led its members in Congress to increase U.S. support for the Duvalier regime in Haiti and the Park dictatorship in South Korea. The Fellowship’s God-led men have also included General Suharto of Indonesia; Honduran general and death squad organizer Gustavo Alvarez Martinez; a Deutsche Bank official disgraced by financial ties to Hitler; and dictator Siad Barre of Somalia, plus a list of other generals and dictators.

Here is the Mother Jones link. More on this group’s leader, Doug Coe, from Harper’s via a DKos diary. Honestly, I felt like I was reading about a cult.

At some point, the Clinton people need to learn about “the Google.”
