Oregon mosque arsonist: "Christians can jihad too!"

Mosque Arson Suspect To Cops: 'Christians Can Jihad Too' | TPMMuckraker
A federal grand jury in Oregon indicted 24-year-old Cody Crawford on federal hate crime and arson charges for allegedly setting fire to a mosque. The fire followed the arrest of a Muslim man for allegedly plotting a terrorist attack on a Christmas tree lighting ceremony. . . . "You look like Obama. You are a Muslim like him," a court document quotes Crawford as telling an officer after he was arrested on Dec. 14 for a charge unrelated to the firebombing. "Jihad goes both ways. Christians can jihad too." Authorities apparently got on Crawford's trail thanks to DNA on a flashlight found near the mosque on the morning of the firebombing. He lived just a block from the mosque.

You really need to listen to this: Christian Dominionism on FRESH AIR

Terry Gross today interviewed Rachel Tabachnik, who is an expert on the New Apostolic Movement (aka, Christian Dominionism). This group has been working for forty years to extend its control over all aspects of life. Seriously. This is a fascist Christian conspiracy happening right in front of us. Tabachnik does a marvelous job laying out their beliefs in plain language, explaining what their coded speech means. You *need* to listen to this. Presidential candidates Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, and Sarah Palin are all Dominionists. The Dominionists believe they are fighting a battle with literal demons (!) to bring about the end of the world. As in, they *want* to bring the world to an end. They believe people are gay because they have demons in them. They believe all Jews need to be converted to Christianity for the end times to come. They are behind Jews For Jesus and all the other Messianic Judaiism movements. They believe they need to utterly control business, religion, education, culture, the family, government, and entertainment (the so-called Seven Mountains) and they are trying to do this under a slew of front groups, like the American Family Association. They are well-organized and well-funded. They scare the living fuck out of me. They want to end public education entirely. They want religious instruction to be mandatory in every school. They want Islam eradicated. They want evolution discredited. They want Climate Change discredited. Please, please listen to this. You need to know how effing dangerous Bachmann and Perry are. The New Apostolic Reformation: The Evangelicals Engaged In Spiritual Warfare : NPR
An emerging Christian movement that seeks to take dominion over politics, business and culture in preparation for the end times and the return of Jesus, is becoming more of a presence in American politics. The leaders are considered apostles and prophets, gifted by God for this role. The international "apostolic and prophetic" movement has been dubbed by its leading American architect, C. Peter Wagner, as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). Although the movement is larger than the network organized by Wagner — and not all members describe themselves as part of Wagner's NAR — the so-called apostles and prophets of the movement have identifiable ideology that separates them from other evangelicals. . . .

Members of the clergy have no inherent authority on moral

It's a better headline than, "Baptist preacher allegedly rapes three women at gunpoint behind his church" right? Preacher accused of raping women behind church - News - National - bnd.com
LADSON, S.C. -- Dale Richardson was saved at a tent revival 32 years ago, was called to preach the Lord's word in 2006 and, for the past year, had served as pastor at Freedom Free Will Baptist Church, a modest red brick structure on a South Carolina side road running along a railroad track. Now he's in jail, charged with kidnapping and raping three women at gunpoint - two of them in a trailer behind the church - and kidnapping a fourth who was not sexually assaulted. According to an incident report, about noon on a Saturday last month, Richardson picked up a woman and gave her a ride. When the 20-year-old tried to get out of the car, Richardson allegedly pulled a gun, bound her hands, covered her head and took her to the gray-blue trailer home behind the church. . . .
