According to “The Family,” a new unnerving five-part documentary series, the most powerful club in America is a consortium of religious true believers bound by their fanatical love of Jesus.
The organization has no official membership, requires no dues, and works overtime to avoid publicity. Its ranks are comprised of both Republicans and Democrats.
And it seeks the eradication of the separation of church and state in its quest for its most coveted asset: power.
Jesse Moss’s miniseries is an adaptation of “The Family” (2008) and “C Street” (2010), two nonfiction books penned by Jeff Sharlet, whose experiences with the Family—often also referred to as the Fellowship—provide a window into an invisible world and movement hiding in plain sight.
“The Family” is available now on Netflix.
