Dept. of Fundamentalism

Hanging around on this holiday, little to do? Catch up on the enemy. To start, check out the Air Force Academy, where the staff is under investigation for pushing Christianity on the cadets. St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times columnist Robyn E. Blumner has a nice intro; here's another column in the Houston Chronicle. You want the full story, look here and download the report of the Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

While you're thinking about the fundies of Colorado Springs, don't miss Jeff Sharlett's amazing Soldiers of Christ, a profile of the town's largest megachurch, New Life Church. Sharlett is behind The Revealer blog (and was nice enough to give me a shout-out the other day) as well as the author of Jesus Plus Nothing, an exposé of The Fellowship, a secret right-wing fundamentalist cabal that supports reactionary members of Congress and world leaders.

Sharlett's story is having a ripple effect, including this article in Westword, the Denver alt.weekly, and many posts in the blog Non-Prophet.
