Jeff Sharlet, author and contributing editor to emHarpers Magazineem and emRolling Stoneem, talks about about his follow up to his 2008 reportage on the fundamentalist Christian power center, emThe Familyem, his new book, emC Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracyem. Jeff Sharlet is the only journalist to have reported from inside the C Street House, the Fellowship residence known simply by its Washington, DC address. The house has lately been the scene of notorious political scandal, but more crucially it is home to efforts to transform the very fabric of American democracy. And now, after laying bare its tenants' past in emThe Familyem, Sharlet reports from deep within fundamentalism in todays world, revealing that the previous efforts of religious fundamentalists in America pale in comparison with their long-term ambitions. When Barack Obama entered the White House, headlines declared the age of culture wars over. Inem C Streetem, Sharlet shows why these conflicts endure and why they matter now--from the sensationalism of Washington sex scandals to fundamentalism's long shadow in Africa, where Ugandan culture warriors determined to eradicate homosexuality have set genocide on simmer.moreless
