Alleged Christian Terrorists said to Target Moderate American Muslims

FBI raids on the Hutaree Christian militia brought to light this formerly little-known group based in Adrian, Michigan.

Unlike the generally secular white supremacist organizations, Hutaree are explicitly Christians. Many seem to be millenarians, expecting the end of time to come soon. Like the so-called Patriot Movement, they are gun nuts. They are said to be organized to kill the Antichrist, and some reports say that they planned violence against American Muslims.

Polling shows that about 1/4 of members of the Republican Party believe that President Obama is the Antichrist, and one fears that Hutaree may agree.

Irregular Times has a good overview of their beliefs, which include secession from the US and return to colonial times, perhaps in preparation for another revolution. … Some are antinomians, rejecting US laws. They fear a liberal ‘new world order.’

Fox Cable News and Rupert Murdoch bear some responsibility for such groups. When Glenn Beck tosses around a charge like ‘anti-Christ’ at a prominent liberal, he knows that term is an incitement for militant Christians. And the years of rabid Fox promotion of hatred of US Muslims is bound to get someone among them killed– and is therefore murder by television. …

The US press is saying the Hutaree people are a Christian “militia” but is avoiding calling them ‘alleged Christian terrorists.” Apparently only organized Muslim radicals can now be called terrorists.

  1. Christian militia members charged in Michigan

    Mon Mar 29, 2010 12:47pm EDT

    DETROIT (Reuters) – Nine members of a Christian militia group were indicted on charges of conspiring to wage war against the U.S. government, federal prosecutors said on Monday.


    According to the grand jury indictment unsealed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the eight men and one woman were members of a group called the Hutaree that planned to kill a police officer in Michigan and then ambush the law enforcement officers who attended his funeral.

    The indictment said the group believed the attacks would “serve as a catalyst for a more widespread uprising” against the government.

    Eight people were arrested by the FBI over the weekend in raids in Michigan, Ohio and Illinois. One of the accused, Joshua Stone, 21, is still at large.

    The arrests followed a federal grand jury indictment handed down in Detroit charging them with seditious conspiracy, attempted use of weapons of mass destruction, and possessing a firearm during a crime of violence.

    The weapons of mass destruction charge referred to improvised explosive devices with projectiles, the indictment said.

    Seven of the eight in custody were arraigned on Monday. On Wednesday, U.S. Magistrate Donald Scheer will consider the prosecutor’s request that the defendants be held without bail. The status of the eighth person was not immediately clear.

    The group’s website, hutaree.com, says the term Hutaree means “Christian warrior” and characterizes the group as “preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive.” It also features a Bible quotation from John 15:13: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

    The indictment said the leader of the group is David Brian Stone Sr., 45, of Clayton, Michigan, who was among those arrested.

    A woman identifying herself as Donna Stone, who said she was David Brian Stone Sr.’s ex-wife, appeared at Monday’s court hearing. She told reporters that her ex-husband’s increasing obsession with firearms had been the cause of the divorce.

    She said: “When he got carried away from handguns to big guns, I said, ‘I’m done.'”
