Christian militia group targeted

Fox News - A Christian militia group was a target of at least one of a series of weekend raids the FBI conducted in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, a Michigan militia leader says. The FBI said Sunday that it had conducted raids in the three states, resulting in at least three arrests. Federal warrants were sealed, but a federal law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity said some of those arrested face gun charges and officials are pursuing other suspects. Some of the suspects were expected in court Monday.

It wasn't clear what prompted the raids, but Michael Lackomar, a spokesman for the Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia, said one of his team leaders got a frantic phone call Saturday evening from members of Hutaree, a Christian militia group. They said their property in southeast Michigan was being raided by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Lackomar said.

"They said they were under attack by the ATF and wanted a place to hide," he said. "My team leader said, 'No thanks."' FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold confirmed the FBI had been working in two southeast Michigan counties near the Ohio state line but wouldn't say whether the raids were connected to Hutaree.
First of all, no one should be breaking the law, be they Christian or liberal. But.... I think stories like this will serve to further the agendas of liberal racists who only want to demonize Christianity and target peaceful Christians. Christianity is a religion of peace and the actions of a few loners should not be a trigger to smear all law-abiding and peaceful Christians. As president obama would say, we shouldn't rush to judge, so I believe liberals should follow his example and refrain from passing judgment and inciting their followers to attack peaceful Christians.

In fact, I think that spreading stories like this only serves to fuel hatred of Christianity among liberal racists and may even cause some Christians to radicalize when faced with this us-and-them mentality and anti-Christian hostility from liberals. Personally I believe that if liberal leaders were to leave their unwarranted phobia and dislike of Christianity behind and come out to remind their followers to reach out and respect Christians and their beliefs instead of demonizing them, this would go a long way to heal past wounds and injustices perpetrated by liberals. Thank you.
