Maybe it was the church itself making its stance public.

Most probably. I don't think there's, like, a neo-nazi group activating here in Summit County. But it says something about where we're at as a country at the moment that we're hopeful that a rash of nazi grafitti in support of our President Elect is "just" folks trying to get a rise out of people.
Colorado does, however, have a long history of being host to neo-Nazi groups. Do you remember the murder of Alan Berg in Denver, or was that before your time?

Alan Berg had some special hair. I remember when the Neo-Nazi shot him. Eric Bogosian's film Talk Radio is based on berg and is definately worth a watch.

Berg was before my time, but I used to be active in the Colorado ARA, so I'm certainly on board with the idea that Colorado has some nasty nazi activity out there.

Local chapter is having someone who was at the '79 Greensboro massacre over for a discussion.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Sorry, you pinko, the 2nd Amendment voids life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness. Those other amendments about freedom of religion, speech, and assembly, and due process are for homos.

As I said in my comments for that post, according to white libertarians Obamacare is slavery, but at the same time slavery is like immigration. You know, libertarians might actually be pretty ignorant about slavery!

I tried to check out the website for the National African America Gun Association at work but it was blocked by the server for "Violent Content". The NRA site is wide open, no problem.
