Anyone else watch The Family on Netflix? 😱

If you haven't, I urge you to do so. Just finished it and WOW.

This organization is an abomination - professing deep faith in Jesus while supporting and bringing together the very worst of humanity.

I had no idea the power they have.

13. Episode one finished -I thought it was creepy but now I remember more about what I had heard

before about this group. However I never knew the spiritual leader was on such an authoritarian power trip
Maybe this side has been exposed before but I was not paying attention . I will continue later today with the next episode . I assume you have seen the whole series
I like that it is being told by someone who was on the inside

14. Yes I've seen the whole thing, just you wait.

Like you I had cursory knowledge of The Family but didn't have a clue about how they indoctrinate, how they operate globally, and how far-reaching their influence is.

A few more episodes in and your mind will be blown.

2. Yes, Pixie - and it r e a l l y gets going around the middle of the third episode, when the original

founder comes into view, and then the barrage of very EXTREMELY relevant info -

(shhh, I haven't finished watching yet)

3. I got pretty bored with it during the first episode...

Never finished it.

Nothing in it that surprised me regarding religion, power and how they're used.

6. You may want to watch a couple more episodes.

Later episodes are relevant to current circumstances.

12. c, as I wrote above, the middle of the third episode, give or take, is when it really catches fire -

hope you’ll give it another shot

Spooky people doing spooky things, all in the name of Jesus.

9. Didn't Rachael do an expose on them a couple of years ago.

Something about them owning a bunch of apartments on DC area that they would furnish and staff and rent out to GOP politicoes for dirt cheap prices. It amounted to a big unclaimed and illegal benefit.

17. Just started watching it this afternoon.

Only got through the first episode, but I was creeped out from the beginning.

Thanks for the rec.

18. One really important thing the docu series doesn't mention

All of those elected officials, traveling all over the world & "praying" with despots and murderous dictators, can carry untouchable diplomatic pouches with who knows what inside. Oh, yeah. A diplomatic pouch can be anything from envelopes to cargo containers. All they have to do is call a trip "outreach."

19. Just finished watching the entire series.

I feel like I need a shower after watching it. So much crapola spewed by these "cultists" that I feel dirty. I wanted to reach through the screen and throttle some of those gullible people.

So much evil done in the name of Jesus. Disclaimer here: I'm an atheist. I can't imagine Jesus would want his name used for what these people (mostly white men) use it for.

I can't even wrap my mind around how evangelicals can embrace Trump. I just can't. I only can see it through the eyes of psychology whereby you have to be pretty darned gullible to even be an evangelical which means you are also gullible enough to think Trump is a godly person.

I'm disgusted by all of this. What the hell happened to separation of church and state? I have always felt like the "tradition" of a prayer breakfast was just plain unconstitutional. I wish that in the future, someone would become president (Dem of course, and preferably a woman) and just put an end to that practice.
