Bonnie and Karen discuss the book, and soon-to be-released Netflix documentary “The Family: An enigmatic conservative Christian group known as the Family wields enormous influence in Washington, D.C., in pursuit of its global ambitions.”
Karen and Bonnie also discuss their first impressions of DC. They were not good. And not for any reasons that had to do with politics.
The secret group in DC laid low for a long time and only insiders knew of them. Until the shtooping. Always the shtooping. In 2009, when senator Mark Sanford disappeared to go “hiking” but was found out to be hiking on his mistress, people learned he lived in a house in DC on C Street. But it wasn’t/isn’t just a house, it’s a group. And boy, do you need to learn about this group. Read Jeff Sharlet’s The Family or “Jesus Plus Nothing” in Harper’s Magazine.
