1/10/11: C Street

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina has said that a person can't serve both God and government, and he's not the only elected official in Washington who uses faith and divine instruction to guide his decision making. Many like-minded politicians gather together at "C Street," home to a powerful group that aims to wage spiritual war at home and abroad. Jeff Sharlet joins Doug to discuss the group and what he calls the fundamentalist threat to American democracy. (Rebroadcast)
