The Institute on Religion and Democracy

The Institute on Religion and Democracy
While it sugar-coats its mission with words like these:

Even today, the triumph of democracy is far from assured. In our own society, cultural trends are sapping the virtues and institutions of “civil society” necessary for democratic life. These worrisome trends include an extreme emphasis on the autonomous individual, the elevation of rights over responsibilities, a hostility toward definitive moral standards, an excessive dependence upon the state to solve all problems, and the cultivation of divisive identity politics. Perhaps the most serious threat to American democracy comes from the fragmentation of the family, the building block of society.

it's clear that what the IRD is trying to do is to destroy politically liberal religious groups and make all religious institutions into bastions or right-wing politics. This is a SCARY organization!
