Christian Taliban harasses town

Post by Mr Danksworth »

"An evangelical Christian hate group called “Repent Amarillo” is reportedly terrorizing the town of Amarillo, Texas. Repent fashions itself as a sort of militia and targets a wide range of community members they deem offensive to their theology: gays, liberal Christians, Muslims, environmentalists, breast cancer events that do not highlight abortion, Halloween, “spring break events,” and pornography shops. On its website, Repent has posted a “Warfare Map” of its enemies in town..."

Here's the wingnut's site. It's absolutely terrifying.

loads of *bleep* reading. Their fearless leader works at a nuclear power plant and no one seems too concerned.

When asked by the reporter[Faith Miller(?) of NBC Ch.4 television] if what they are doing is discrimination or judgement:

Pastor David H. Grisham wrote:That's not a judgement ... on my part. That is God's judgement that He has already made in his Word, ... and so when Christians say something is right or wrong they are not making judgements, they are making discernments based on judgements god has already made


This is a very dangerous mode of thinking, and it has direct parallels to other brands of religion that most of us universally view as abhorrent.

I am repeatedly being called-out as having "fear" of religion by some of our more cog-dissed members of the forum--and I concede! I do have fear!

<Cog-Dissed member>"Yabut they don't represent the majority of christians out there.'

Why don't we see the more centrist christ worshippers speaking out against this kind of insult to their faith? They tend to just turn a blind eye.

Wackos without a doubt, but

take out the pornography and Halloween and you have the same viewpoints of a lot of rednecks I've met.

It's not an inverse relaionship. You can be a christian without being a redneck. But chances are if your neck is red, then Jebus is one of your friends... He hate *bleep*, and loves guns too!
