Politicians that are linked to Quiverful,IFBl, ATI...


Recommended Posts

Is there a comprehensive list of which politicians that are linked to any of the organizations that we concluded to be apart the Quiverful movement?


All I can think of is Rep John Webster in Florida. I thought that it could be nice to put together a list to view as we get closer to November election.



Also what trigger this is I wonder if Senator James Lankford from Oklahoma has any ties. What I know is he was apart of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma with the student ministries and evangelism specialist as well as the director of Falls Creek youth programming at Falls Creek Baptist Conference Center (Davis, Ok). I can't find anything that would connect him but I doubt I'm looking for the right things.

I am pretty sure that Huckabee has ties, too.

He does. A picture of them together can be found here (Arkansas Times, not a blog). I've read elsewhere that Huckabee had been to IBLP seminars.

His Wikipedia page, which someone in another thread said is kept relatively Blemish-free by some IBLP insiders, says that his political connections include Huckabee, Sonny Perdue, and Sarah Palin. I found this quote from an article on baptiststandard.com


He’s also rubbed shoulders with conservative Republican luminaries. He and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee were photographed at a campaign lunch together; former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue spoke at one of Gothard’s conferences; and Sarah Palin, when she was a small-town mayor in Alaska, attended his International Association of Character Cities conferences and declared Wasilla among Gothard’s “Cities of Character.”

I wonder of the "Cities of Character" front group is still active, given how ATI/IBLP is hemorrhaging money and members like crazy. Since Gothard himself is being sued and all his dirty secrets are coming to light, I wonder how many of those politicians would admit to supporting him in the past or if they'd be like, "Gothard who?"
