Randi blogs about the ultra-secretive Washington D.C. group “The Family”:
If you forgot to mark your calendar, this [February 4th]Â was the National Prayer Breakfast, sponsored by the secretive and shadowy far-right organization known as â€œThe Family.â€Â Â Tea Parties? Prayer Breakfasts? Do you get the feeling that the people on the far right really want to be running a restaurant? If they could just open up a little diner somewhere and leave the governing to us, we would all be a lot happier. The National Prayer Breakfast is really the only thing that The Family does in public. Itâ€™s the stuff that they do privately thatâ€™s so disturbing.Â The leader of â€œThe Family,â€ has praised the tactical skills of Adolf Hitler. And you thought breakfast with your family was awkward! The Family is also pushing a law in Uganda that calls for imprisonment and execution for â€œaggravated homosexuality.â€ Why? Mostly simply because theyâ€™re aggravated by homosexuality. Of course The Family also runs the C Street house that sheltered and â€œcounseledâ€ adulterers John Ensign and Mark Sanford. Thereâ€™s a nice breakfast tie-in: the problem with those guys was that they were makinâ€™ bacon where they shouldnâ€™t be. Thatâ€™s a lovely agenda for a group that sponsors a prayer breakfast! â€œMore orange juice?â€ â€œNo thanks, Iâ€™ll just have a bowl of homophobia and a side of adultery.â€Â
