You're probably one of them whackjob Jesus freaks.
That's why you defend this evil so much as you do.
Well. let me explain to you the problem. This Jesus Freak Fellowhip has UNDUE influence upon the representatives of this country.
When these representatives should be representing the people that voted them in,
they are catering to the needs and whims of the Jesus Freak aka The Fellowhip and getting practially free housing for their efforts. That's the problem.

Let's be civil. Try to be mature enough to resist such sophomoric name calling. It's beneath me, and I would hope it's beneath you. It just makes you look unintelligent.
I am always volitile. Its my nature.
I saw nothing in this article stating that they had UNDUE influence. That seems to be something you assumed.
When an religious organization provides practically FREE housing to a politican in a place akin to a mansion, then that politriican inserts their beliefs into his lawmaking decisions that sounds a little like undue political influence to me.
Can you prove that the people in this religious community didn't vote for these politicians? If you can't, then how can you say that they aren't doing exactly that?
I have lived in Washington for decades. I know you can't trust repugnants and those that side with them.
Problem? Perhaps. EVIL? No.
You are just being sensationalistic because they are an organization with religious beliefs.
No, I truly beleive that repugnants and the religious right are evil.
