Via the Center for Media and Democracy, a good Australian piece on the Exclusive Brethren, a religious group that forbids involvement in worldly politics, but has in recent years ventured into electioneering and campaign giving in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States (three guesses at which presidential candidate they liked in '04). It helps that quite a few members of the group are loaded and while historically publicity-shy, have felt more and more comfortable speaking out about their particular beliefs, which among other things proscribe movies, TV, college, and shorts (thus the bit about manly legs).
