Opposing The IRD: Here's The Documentary, Where's The Coalition ?

Consider the positions of the Institute On Religion and Democracy Concerning: Global Warming and the Environment, Same Sex Marriage, the Middle East, War and Peace, reproductive rights.

And, consider how much the IRD's voice gets projected in mainstream media. Now, consider these groups whose interests the IRD attacks: Environmental Groups, Women's Rights Groups, Reproductive Rights Groups, Peace Groups, LGBT Rights Groups; The interests of all five of those political blocs are being effectively attacked by a single Washington DC agency and yet there never has either a public or a private (to the best of my knowledge) conversation among representatives of those groups, and Mainline Protestant and progressive Catholic groups, about how to work together, to oppose the effort of the IRD and its allies, and to advance common goals.
