Top 10 Fundie Power Brokers

Head over to PageOneQ for a fantastic reprint of an article by Americans United for Separation of Church and State‘s Rob Boston on the top ten radical religious organizations in the U.S. (with a hat tip to Scott).

Here’s the list, but the full article is an essential click. We often make fun of these clowns here on the Blend, but the sorry truth is that these organizations are cash cows of bigotry, pulling in $447 million a year — and spending in excess of a half a billion on anti-gay initiatives. I’ve included a link to prior Blend posts on each.
