The latest front in Russian infiltration: America’s right-wing homeschooling movement – ThinkProgress

The group and its origins sound innocuous enough. But the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) — a right-wing group founded 36 years ago — has deepened connections between America’s religious right and Russians even as the latter have been sanctioned by the United States, according to a ThinkProgress investigation.

Composition of Tweets about Church & Politics

The trouble with “the #Church” getting entangled in #politics is that doing good in Jesus’ name always gets lost in the process; and if it is not lost, then the travesty of dominionist #theocracy (a.k.a. #Christofascism) has taken over.
