A radical, right-wing charismatic evangelical movement is burrowing into
the power structures of major American cities and states.
They claim to be able to raise the dead and cause miracles, such as the multiplication of Thanksgiving turkey dinners. They burn "witchcraft items" and "idols."

They claim to be able to heal HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis C, Glaucoma, and cancer, and to break "generational curses" and "witchcraft curses." Who are they? Here are a few overviews (bonus links below).

They're behind Sarah Palin and one of their "prophets" has become the de-facto prayer leader for the Republican Party.
