Flashback: "Jesus Plus Nothing". US Theocracy in the making?
Edited on Sat May-15-04 11:00 AM by Misinformed01
This is a mind blower...

"Ivanwald, which sits at the end of Twenty-fourth Street North in Arlington, Virginia, is known only to its residents and to the members and friends of the organization that sponsors it, a group of believers who refer to themselves as the Family. The Family is, in its own words, an invisible association, though its membership has always consisted mostly of public men. Senators Don Nickles (R., Okla.), Charles Grassley (R., Iowa), Pete Domenici (R., N.Mex.), John Ensign (R., Nev.), James Inhofe (R., Okla.), Bill Nelson (D., Fla.), and Conrad Burns (R., Mont.) are referred to as members, as are Representatives Jim DeMint (R., S.C.), Frank Wolf (R., Va.), Joseph Pitts (R., Pa.), Zach Wamp (R., Tenn.), and Bart Stupak (D., Mich.). Regular prayer groups have met in the Pentagon and at the Department of Defense, and the Family has traditionally fostered strong ties with businessmen in the oil and aerospace industries. The Family maintains a closely guarded database of its associates, but it issues no cards, collects no official dues. Members are asked not to speak about the group or its activities."

Sleep tight, don't let the Neo-Fascist Theologians bite :-)

PS~ Whoops. This is JanMichael posting under his fabulous wife's ID...

2. This might need a warning label! It is harsh and scary! Not recommended
for adults. Just kidding. It is scary though! Thanks for putting it back up!

3. Is it in North or South Arlington?
There are so many 24th streets in Arlington. You can't find it that easily.
