remember the christian coalition? ralph reed was the mastermind behind that political beast and he used his followers like a hammer. a hammer for christ...and profit..and power... this man betrayed every single faithful person who ever believed in him. you would think those who were betrayed would shame him into oblivion but here he is again... well funded and people listening to him.
why evangelicals question why they are viewed as incurious and ignorant need to examine who they give authority to. ralph reed is corruption incarnate.
from c&l: When Ralph Reed, the former head of the Christian Coalition, was discovered to have raked in millions of dollars from the super lobbyist — and eventually convicted felon — Jack Abramoff, Reed wound up in political purgatory. But outraged by the election of Barack Obama, and responding to what he describes as God’s call (via Sean Hannity), Reed returned to start the Faith and Freedom Coalition with the aim of toppling Barack Obama from the White House.
This week, Moyers & Company tracks Reed’s rise, fall, and return: does it signal a new revolution, or an old racket?
