THE NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST AND ITS OFFSHOOTS
 
     “Worldly Power: Family Style” has been presented in two parts. Part One appeared in the Big Bang Issue of Papel Mag (October 27, 2009). It concerns the Family’s behind-the-scenes global prayer group movement that was founded by Abraham (a/k/a Abram) Vereide, a Norwegian immigrant preacher, in Seattle, Washington in 1935. At the age of 49 Vereide formulated the Idea,[1] his realization that he should stop ministering to the needy and, thereafter, dedicate himself to the spiritual affairs of the wealthy. Ten years later Vereide dubbed his vision ‘the new world order.’ By then, he had moved his headquarters to Washington, D.C. where he ingratiated himself with the wealthy and the powerful, and pushed his prayer group movement worldwide[2] including Puerto Rico.[3]

THE PRAYER GROUP MOVEMENT

The Other FBI12 delved into how faith-based initiatives threaten the doctrine of separation of church and state—a democratic maxim that incorporates two legal (and political) principles, secular government and religious freedom—in both the United States and Puerto Rico.  Thomas Jefferson’s referred to it in his renowned letter to the Danbury (Connecticut) Baptists.3  He believed the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution4 built a “wall of separation” between church and state. Section 3 of Article II of the Constitution of Puerto Rico5 leaves no doubt that this doctrine exists in Puerto Rico.

THE OTHER FBI

Faith-Based Initiatives (the other FBI) and “compassionate” conservatism are interconnected. We all should know more about this secretive movement that melds two spheres of belief, religion and politics. Its origin can be traced back to former Nixon aide and Watergate felon Charles W. Colson’s Prison Fellowship, a worldwide fundamentalist evangelical ministry that wages war on secularism. Traditionally evangelicals aided and worked for the poor and the suffering. This ended in the early part of the twentieth century when their “Social Gospel” was radically revised.
