"The Family", also known as "The Fellowship" is a highly secretive organization of elite, powerful, and largely conservative so-called Christians who have operated mostly under the radar since the group's beginning in 1935. The politically well-connected comprise the majority of the members who describe their main mission as that of promoting Jesus' teachings throughout the United States and indeed throughout the world.

The group has a dark history. Abraham Vereide founded the organization largely to oppose Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. He called Harry Bridges, the labor organizer who was responsible for the biggest strike in American history a "Satanic and Soviet agent". One of the association's chief tenants is that power ought to be concentrated primarily in the hands of those who have achieved leadership positions. In that regard, The Family has witnessed to the former president of Uganda, Idi Amin, the former leader of Libya, Muammar al-Gaddafi, and the current president of Russia, Vladimir Putin.

That's all fine and good - there's nothing wrong with promoting Jesus' teachings - but there's another insidious underbelly to their activities and that is their fervent opposition to any support of the LGBTQ community. Essentially they think that Jesus would have been opposed to basic human rights. Harsh laws have been passed in countries where The Family has a presence that prohibit homosexual activity of any kind, oftentimes punishable by life in prison or even death.

Perhaps the most destructive aspect of The Family's outreach is the muddling of the line between church and state. This philosophical blending has brought down entire civilizations and will do so again. It's just a matter of time.
