Air Jesus -With The Evangelical Air Force

As leading lights gathered at the National Religious Broadcasters' convention, only power- mongering and profiteering could keep their contradictions from bubbling to the surface.

It might seem ironic for McDonald to invoke the spectre of persecution at the convention of a group that represents the interests of 1700 broadcasters and which enjoys unfettered access to congressional Republicans and the White House. The NRB's influence was best summarized by its new CEO, Frank Wright, who, in describing a recent lobbying excursion to Capitol Hill, said, "We got into rooms we've never been in before. We got down on the floor of the Senate and prayed over Hillary Clinton's desk."
