All the Rage

Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword====Jesus
Matthew 10:34 (NAS)

Yesterday the FBI arrested a Militia group calling themselves "Christian Soldiers" or something like that. These are people who have so much anger in their lives that they wanted to murder policemen, they hate Obama because of his policies and his race
they hate immigrants, they hate anyone or everything who doesn't agree with them....they are on the extreme far right end of the spectrum.......These people are religious terrorists but this time instead of being muslim they are christian. They believe with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength that they are doing the will of God. The mindset of the religious fanatic is murderous...400 years John Calvin burned a man alive because of a disagreement over doctrine. Abortion doctors are targeted and sometimes shot in cold blood or have their clinics blown up, purely for religious reasons. Jon Krakhauer wrote a brilliant book called "Under the Banner of Heaven" that details the FLDS (Fundemental Latter Day Saints) a truer version of Mormonism and more like the original book of Mormon...where a mother and her child were murdered because God told the men to murder them.

This will not stop anytime soon......

On the flip side...I've never heard of this kind of conflict or strife occurring because people were thinking freely and using logic and reasoning.

Some pretty scary stuff in the name of the Lord. Certainly, not the norm and is the radical fringe. Anyone could say that any"one" or any "thing" told them to do "it." No accounting for some crazies!
