Undercover Officer Helped Take Down Hutaree Militia
March 31, 2010
An undercover law enforcement officer infiltrated a Christian militia group to gather evidence that led to FBI raids of the Michigan-based Hutaree group over the weekend.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ronald Waterstreet told U.S. Magistrate Judge Donald Scheer this afternoon that the leader of the group, David B. Stone, 45, of Clayton wanted the undercover agent to prepare bombs to fight law enforcement officers, who the group regarded as enemies of the country.
During the ongoing detention hearing, which began around 1:15 p.m., for eight alleged members of the group, Waterstreet played an audiotape of Stone saying, “Now is the time to strike and take our nation back. … This war will come whether we are ready or not. We will fight alongside anyone that calls the new world order their enemy.”

The identification of the "Hutaree militia" as a "Christian" group is patently false and erroneous. These people are not Christians and only hide behind the religion as do the radical Muslim terrorists who hide behind Islam. Real Christians follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, who never advocated murder or violence against anyone, rather he said, "love thy enemy.". Those who do advocate violence are not Christian and have their own agendas. This tag is yet another example of the ultra liberal media bias against Christianity and who report facts in a slipshod manner..

Why insist on calling them "Christian" when it is obvious from their apparent goals that they are not in adherence to the basic tenets of Christianity?
