    I do not claim to be a devout Christian, but know a little about the Bible, and do not recall anywhere that Christianity supports killing poilice officers or blowing up a funeral procession? Are these the sort of voters that Santorum is targeting??

    Hamas.... Al Quaida...Hezbolla...

    Those names ring a bell?

    These right wing Militias are potentially the Christian versions of those hated groups. Welcome to fanatical religious extremism in the USA.

    Extremism begets extremism. What you see is that there are people who expect the government to war against them. What groups like this say, more than anything else, is that our government will eventually do to its people what Assad is doing to the Syrian people.

    They are unbelievably foolish people. They can sit around with their little popguns dreaming unreasonable dreams when they should be paying more attention to how Syria does treat its people. Individual arms cannot succeed against bombs and mortar shells.

    Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Quaeda and the muslim brotherhood are SUPPORTED by the governments that harbor them. To find comparable groups in the US, isn't the Hutaree, it's the Black Panthers, the Zetas, The Occupy Wall Street movement and the DNC.

    Why? Are you correlating safety with your political party? What if you disagree with a particular issue? Then you become a RINO... and are no longer safe from their wrath.

    Do you see where I'm going with this? The mistake right wingers make is that Tyranny only comes from the left.

    I see people like this as some kind of cult.


    some charismatic leader, take parts of another religion and uses it to scare the shit outta people, but then has the answer to all their problems they never knew they had b/c "they" are in control.


    are they dangerous? Yes
    Seriously dangerous? no, a bunch of nuts with guns that end up in jail, are not to be taken overly seriously.

    Puhleeze, 9 people in a crazy family makes a militia??

    Find something serious to worry about instead of trying to associate 150 MILLION people to 9 fucking KOOKS.
