9/28/10: C Street

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. Tuesday, journalist Jeff Sharlet joins Doug to discuss the group and what he calls the fundamentalist threat to American democracy.

  • Read an excerpt of Jeff Sharlet's Straight Man's Burden in the September issue of Harper's Magazine.
  • Jeff Sharlet's latest book is called C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy
