Morons with Bibles and Guns

If Jesus were to parachute in during this holiday season, I suspect he would likely be mortified at some of the absurdities and hate crimes being perpetrated in His name.

In the days leading up to President Kennedy's fatal visit to Dallas, Texas, the city was plastered with 5,000 copies of a "wanted poster" featuring Kennedy's face and an accusation of treason.  The charges included being lax on communism, appointing anti-Christians to federal government positions, and lying to the American people about his personal life.

Now a group calling itself the Christian American Patriot Militia has reportedly (according to put a manifesto on Facebook saying that people have the authority to shoot the President.  The rambling screed accuses President Obama of disrespecting the Constitution, and states that the authority to kill him comes from the Second Amendment - apparently because Mr. Obama is "levying war on the United States and aiding and comforting our foreign enemies."  They add that "The Second Amendment gives us the right and duty (authority) to engage the enemy of the United States that does so with the design to reduce us under absolute Despotism."

The posting goes on to exhort people to join their organization.

Just because they are incoherent crackpots doesn't mean they can't be dangerous - or inspire others who are dangerous.

The FBI and Secret Service need to give the members of this organization the attention that they are so desperately seeking.
