It doesn't surprise me there are some radical Christians. Seems many faiths have fringe military types.
Yes for sure, but these guys are like a private militia, anti government and God knows what else. I suppose there are parallels with these guys and liberation theology (of which our friend rwingett may approve of) in that their interpretation of Christs words that he shall bring 'a sword', rather than peace and cause division etc etc for it seems that their main aim was indeed extreme social unrest. I watched an analysis on CNN (is it to be trusted for one watches certain american news sources as one would a soap opera)
(Matthew 10:34-36) . . .Do not think I came to put peace upon the earth; I came to put, not peace, but a sword. For I came to cause division, with a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a young wife against her mother-in-law. Indeed, a man’s enemies will be persons of his own household.
