I wrote a post last year noting that the Right-Wing had a lot of different groups under which they pressed the agenda. On top of their own organizations, a lot of right-wing leaders are also involved in umbrella organizations like the Arlington Group and the Council for National Policy. There are also various state-level organziations like the “Patriot Pastors” movement and the “Restoration Projects” that are active in places like Texas and Ohio.
And then there are things like the Iowa Renewal Project, where Mike Huckabee hobnobbed with various right-wing leaders as he rallied to win the Iowa primary. Apparently there is also one in Georiga as well, which is slated to host Gov. Sonny Perdue, Daivd Barton, Mat Staver and other for a luncheon next week:
Georgia Renewal Project
Cordially invites you to participate in its Pastors’ Policy Briefing Luncheon
Rediscovering God in America
With Special Guests
The Honorable Sonny Perdue
Governor of Georgia
Historian David Barton
Who will be accompanied by
The Honorable Bob McEwen

and other guest speakers
To be held at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel
2450 Galleria Pkwy, Atlanta, GA 30339
on Tuesday, November 25, 2008.
11:30 AM – 2:30 PM
Registration begins at 11:00 AM.
There will be a reception prior to the luncheon beginning at 11:00 AM.
The luncheon is complimentary and will be provided by the Georgia Renewal Project.
CWA’s Beverly LaHaye also seems to be involved, as she is issuing her own invitations to the event.
I have to admit that, as someone who follows this stuff for a living, even I am routinely confused by sheer number of different organizations that have different names, yet all seem to contain the same handful of Religious Right leaders.
