Netflix Documentary Investigates Secret Organization Behind National Prayer Breakfast
A new Netflix documentary alleges that power, rather than sincere faith, is the driving motivation behind the Fellowship, the secretive organization that runs the National Prayer Breakfast. The Fellowship, founded by the late Douglas Coe, shuns publicity and holds members to a vow of secrecy. The organization has many ties to politicians in the U.S. and internationally.
The documentary The Family will reportedly "expose" the Fellowship's secret ties and activities in Washington, D.C. In the official trailer released last week, one interview subject claims, "They say it's about faith, but there's a shared understanding that what we're really about here is power."
All five episodes of The Family will debut Aug. 9 on Netflix. When it does, the series will likely cause controversy—the YouTube comments on the trailer have already been permanently disabled. Watch the preview here.
