"Jesus wanted us to be ready to defend ourselves using the sword and stay alive using equipment."
The thinking of these people defies logic. According to their basic premiss - the world is evil and someday they will all go to paradise and live in heaven with Jesus - after they die. But for now they are preparing to defend themselves in this world against an "anti-christ" that would do what? Kill them and send them to heaven? Or convince them to buy new cars and steal their souls? What?! I don't get their logic probably because they don't have any.
Doesn't it figure, if violence were the answer Jesus would have done it and avoided death on the cross - he had all the power of God at his finger tips right?
I think these people are just deranged and want to kill someone - anyone they perceive as evil of the day. What the heck if Muslims can do it why not Christians.

Good for the FBI. They need to do more raids where people are engaging in illegal activities. These groups use religion to veil their violent tendencies and at times racism. Maybe they should pick up the tin foil hats instead of firearms.

"They said they were under attack by the ATF and wanted a place to hide"

Wow, says it all right there.... so all the anti-Christ has to do is dress up like the ATF and scare them? Glad no one got hurt...

Isn't this the same agencies that shot up Waco killing all those women and children? They ever thought about raiding some of the muslin communities? Your right pikkil47, Hussein Obama and Big Brother are in action.

Why is the ATF always used as a political tool of the Left? During Clinton and now during Obama, they attack White people and do absolutely nothing about the gangs in the cities.

I’m sure the Muslim community was just SHOCKED that anyone would hurt another group because of their religion!

Wow - somebody is scared..."they dress up in camo and shoot". Sounds like the average hunter in the midwest.
I don't see a thing in this article that warrants a raid by the FBI.
Militia's are legal.
The only "kooks" we need to be worried about are the ones in Washington DC that continually lie to the public and are in the process of running this country straight down the toilet.

One wonders what sort of perceived threat these citizens posed to the established order. Anytime "law enforcement" deploys military tactics against U.S. citizens we should question the evidence and the motives. We should also do all we can to assure a fair reporting by the news media. Let's never forget that this great country of ours was founded by religious nuts with guns. The fact that I may have a dozen guns in my house is not relevant to whether or not I am a danger to society.

Your comment is as illogical as the people who were raided. Waco was like 20 years ago. That did not happen because the President said to go shot up some extremist Christians.

I'm taking this with just as many grains of salt as I do reports about Arab youths in Toledo or Michigan supposedly getting ready to commit jihadic mischief. Lots of talk and no action with half of the cell members being FBI informants or agents provocateur.

Oh well, liberals need their (white Christian)boogeymen too.

Quote: "On its Web site, Hutaree says it believes that Jesus wants people to be prepared to defend themselves against the Antichrist."
Whoops! Too late. The anti-Christ is already here, and he is them. And anyone else with hate and violence (verbal and physical).

ATF agents are nothing more than FBI/CIA wannabees. The ATF has a higher kill rate though.

So right, I am tired of reading about these kooks and their drive by killings and gang murders.

These guys must have signaled their intention to resist the new health plan. Couple that with their "clinging to their guns and religion" and you can put the rest together for yourself...

Any guess what The Pres is going after next???

Oh Thank Goddess that our brave federal agents stopped these dangerous right wing Xtian tea bagger racist traitors from committing mass murder! I mean, they wear camofluage and shoot guns in the woods, they must be preparing for a violent racist terrorist act against people who listen to NPR! The Southern Poverty Law Center said it, so it must be true! The other day a white male in a pick up truck behind me at the light honked when it turned green and I knew he was just seconds away from shooting me with his assault rifle becuase of the progressive and enlightened bumper stickers on the back of my hybrid! Etc etc etc ad nauseam...
