Hillary's Nasty Pastor Problem

Run time: 03:44

Meet Doug Coe, Hillary Clinton's "Spiritual Mentor", Head of "The Family"


Audio Tapes Raise Questions On Hillary Clinton's Right-Wing Cult Associations

The audio clips you can hear in this video I have produced are taken from sermons given by the man Senator Hillary Clinton has described as a "spiritual mentor": Doug Coe is the head of a secretive Washington religious organization, which hosts the yearly National Prayer Breakfast : The Family. The Family is not a conspiracy. It is a right-wing fundamentalist, elitist power cult and a global influence peddling ring with links to some of the most savage, bloodthirsty regimes of the 20th Century. The audio clips you can hear in the following video production are taken from sermons given by the man Hillary Clinton has described as a "spiritual mentor", Doug Coe. There is no evidence to prove Clinton is aware of these statements by Coe, but the agenda of The Family is far from secret.

Background Reading on "The Family"
Mother Jones Magazine, September 1, 2007 Hillary's Prayer: Hillary Clinton's Religion and Politics by By Kathryn Joyce and Jeff Sharlet

Harper's Magazine, March 2003 Hillary's Nasty Pastorate, by Barbara Ehrenreich


The Family is a secretive organization that recruits elected officials into "cells" (The Family's own term) in order to influence their public policy formation. The Family is not a church. It is a covert network of influence; the purpose of the influence is to tilt public policies in a conservative direction.
Hillary Clinton has written about her long involvement with The Family, and she has praised its leader, Doug Coe, as her spiritual mentor.
