Turns out the Christian Coalition has fallen on hard times. They are more than two MILLION dollars in debt, and people are running from them like they finally realizing that Robertson's craziness is contagious.
The Washington Post has a great article in today's paper about the woes of the once might organization.
One of the most embarrasing tidbits is that in March the Iowa chapter of the CC decided that they can be crazy all by themselves, and they don't need Pat Robertson to help them out. The Iowa chapter cut ties and renamed itself the "Iowa Christian Alliance." The new group said that they "found it impossible to continue to carry a name that in any way associated us with this national organization." Ouch.
The Iowa people say the debt was too much for them; the new president Stephen Scheffler said " We believe, our board believes, any Christian organization has an obligation to pay its debts in a timely fashion." So they left.
The debts run from $70,000 to their lawyers, to $1,500 to their moving company.
The only Washington employee they have left works out of his home, in South Carolina.
Sad times for ole Crazy Pat.
Shed a tear for him.
