I just want to bring this to your attention....
Meet the Texas Taliban
An evangelical Christian hate group called “Repent Amarillo” is reportedly terrorizing the town of Amarillo, Texas. Repent fashions itself as a sort of militia and targets a wide range of community members they deem offensive to their theology: gays, liberal Christians, Muslims, environmentalists, breast cancer events that do not highlight abortion, Halloween, “spring break events,” and pornography shops. On its website, Repent has posted a “Warfare Map” of its enemies in town.
To leap to the end of the article, NO...there was no report or discussion that ANYTHING has been done to corral these brownshirt assholes. A little more on the flip
According to a new exposé by the Texas Observer, Repent set out earlier this year to destroy a discreet club of swingers they discovered in town. On New Years eve, the harassment began, with Repent members, almost exclusively young men, showing up in military fatigues and bullhorns, blaring Christian music at the swingers’ club building. The swingers, made up of “regulars” of middle aged, working class couples, were then stalked at every following visit to the club. Repent not only took video of each member, but obtained the swingers’ license plates and dug through their trash, informing neighbors and coworkers of what was once private
I have the overwhelming feeling that if I did this I'd be getting my ass kicked and then arrested and then sued.
Here's their pathtic website Check this:
Notice: This site is not designed for non-christians, It is designed as a recruitment tool to call certain Christians to spiritual warfare, If you are not a Christian and you want to know more about becoming a Christian consider the following Links as resources. While some of them support our efforts, and some may not, it is not about us and it is not about them. It is about Jesus Christ.
If you do make the journey over to their site, note the little white flecks floating all over it. I imagine its methamphetamines. Also check out their Spiritual Warfare Map.
I got news for crackheads like these:
I am never going to worship your god and nothing you can do will make me.
I am never going to your damned churches.
I am never going to view you as anything but knuckle-dragging 12-century throwbacks and dimwitted brownshirts with inadequate psyches and tiny dicks.
Where, exactly, are the cops when one actually needs them?
Chasing potsmokers, I suppose.

Please add this to the diary...
the people are already organizing against hate. The site www.repentamarillo.net belongs to Amarillo Citizens Against Repent Amarillo. This blog links to several articles in the Texas Observer describing the crazy, and there already is some legal action pending against them - attempting to harass an attorney was probably not a very smart idea. There is also a lot of coverage of the war between Repent Armadillo and the local swingers' community.
