From alternet, a list of those wonderful truthsayers. I will list them but you have to go to the site to read and believe. It is a scary place they wish us to go to. What kind of world supports these false prophets?(profits?)

Quote:
The United States is home to dozens of Religious Right groups. Many have small budgets and focus on state and local issues; the most powerful organizations conduct nationwide operations, command multi-million-dollar bank accounts and attract millions of followers. They have disproportionate clout in the halls of Congress, the White House and the courts, and they wield enormous influence within the political system.

Haven't read it yet, just noticing the 'greed is good' position of these groups. How many groups must one head before feeling he has enough?

I am sure the site is chilling--will check it out.

I keep coming back to Jesus saying, "Many shall speak my name but I shall not know them."

These are not people taking the path less traveled.
