Hutaree "Christian" militia

President Lincoln is reported to have asked the question, "How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg?"

The answer: Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.

According to the Associated Press:
Nine alleged members of a Christian militia group that was girding for battle with the Antichrist were charged Monday with plotting to kill a police officer and slaughter scores more by bombing the funeral — all in hopes of touching off an uprising against the U.S. government.
It is theoretically conceivable (though misguided) that a group of paranoid Christians could train to be able to defend themselves in case of government anarchy or something. It is not conceivable that genuine Christians would deliberately plan to murder a police officer in cold blood, much less deliberately plan to bomb those who attend the funeral!

Jesus said we would know false prophets by their fruit (Matthew 7:15-20). Just because they call themselves Christian doesn't make them Christian any more than calling a tail a leg makes it a leg.

Kudos to the FBI for brining down this cult before they were able to carry out their plots.
