Me too! I’ve had Netflix for about 12 years. I loved “House of Cards”!!! Soooo good. Many movies. And a documentary about Trump’s past - juicy stuff! 😉

Her loss!
I’ve watched some really good series and movies that you don’t get anywhere else. Spain in particular makes some really good series worth watching.

Does it have any basis in the NXIVM thing?

That was certainly a cult!
The "Fellowship" is not a cult. It is a partnership of Evangelical leaders who seek to shape American culture, politics and business. The goal is a "Christian" led nation, strick enforcement of gender roles in private and public life, and a belief that Jesus' true mission was to lead the "powerful" and "chosen" which they define as Christian males of wealth, corporate leaders or politicians.

Their teachings and activities are well documented, and many current and past members of Congress and the WH have declared affiliation with the group.
The stated purpose of the Fellowship is to provide a fellowship forum for decision makers to share in Bible studies, prayer meetings, worship experiences, and to experience spiritual affirmation and support.

The Fellowship's known participants include ranking United States government officials, corporate executives, heads of religious and humanitarian aid organizations, and ambassadors and high-ranking politicians from across the world. Many United States Senators and Congressmen have publicly acknowledged working with the Fellowship or are documented as having worked together to pass or influence legislation.

Former Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, also a former member of the Senate Prayer Group, has described Fellowship members' method of operation: "Typically, one person grows desirous of pursuing an action"—a piece of legislation, a diplomatic strategy—"and the others pull in behind." Brownback has often joined with fellow Family members in pursuing legislation. For example, in 1999 he joined together with fellow Family members, Senators Strom Thurmond and Don Nickles to demand a criminal investigation of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, and in 2005 Brownback joined with Fellowship member Sen. Tom Coburn to promote the Houses of Worship Act.

The op said it was a cult-like group. I took her at her word (which I should know better than to do) and asked if it was based on a KNOWN cult. I'm sorry, I didn't realize it was a documentary, I thought it was typical netflix crap.

Yes
This is what makes it so interesting, IMO.

I wouldn’t want that to happen though- we don’t need Evangelicals in DC enforcing their rules on everyone. Separation of church and state is essential.
When is the last time a government agency tried to tell anyone where and how they should, or could, worship?
I don't think you understand what the separation of church and state really means.

Netflix shows movies- academy award winning movies, made for TV movies, documentaries, TV series, children’s shows, etc.
Entertaining, educational...something for everyone.

I don't watch much on Netflix. Dh and the kids do, but there is never anything on there I want to watch. Right now, I'm binge watching Psych on Prime Video. I don't watch a lot of stuff..I put it on for background noise, but unless it is football, The Goldbergs, Fresh Off the Boat, or these days Psych ( in season 7 out of 8)..I just don't watch it. I prefer reading non-fiction books than watching docs.
