Democracy & Technology Blog Insights into Christian Coalition’s curious support for net neutrality regulation

Conservative advocacy groups are nearly unanimous in opposing net neutrality regulation. Then there is the Christian Coalition, which has inexplicably joined forces, on this issue, with groups who normally oppose its religious and social conservative goals. In a recent column, Dick Armey comments that this is not the first time leadership at the Christian Coalition has “sided with the forces of big government and against good sense and the rest of the conservative movement.” The Christian Coalition has also supported tax increases, according to Armey, and local chapters are distancing themselves from the organization’s Beltway leadership.
