Anyone know anything about something called The Fellowship? (Not the Fellowship of St. James!) Joshua Green at Atlantic.com writes about it. Of course, it is secretive according to this report, with archives located somewhere on the campus of Wheaton College (Ill.), classified as "restricted" and kept under lock and key. I guess since the archives are just down the road 30 miles, it caught my attention. I do vaguely recall hearing something about "the Family" some years ago. The New Republic blog calls this "spooky" and makes it into plural "affiliations." Other words like shadowy and secretive appear.
This causes me to think of a few other politicians, who's names I am unable to mention, who most certainly fairly regularly stop by their churches, and spend some time talking to their pastors in secret. The pastors (or priests) won't divulge what they routinely talk about, and the politicians aren't saying. They say it is none of our business. In some cases a politician even kneels down before the priest, and in other cases the priest is passing on secret instructions to him. For what, who knows? Spooky.
Well, I don't know what the deal is with The Fellowship, but who knew that this presidential election campaign would see so much coverage of religion!
