Ok, further to my growing fear of random unhinged white guys coming to New York to kill us all, here’s a scary Dan Savage post about a group called Repent Amarillo, a fundamentalist Christian pseudo-militia that’s trying to take over the moral soul of Amarillo to save it from “a demonic takeover.” Going beyond the power of prayer, Repent Amarillo is prepared to use whatever means necessary, including “aggressive use of soldiers and prayer warriors.” The groups these prayer warriors plan on targeting?
1. Gay pride events.
2. Earth worship events such as “Earth Day”
3. Pro-abortion events or places such as Planned Parenthood
4. Breast cancer events such as “Race for the Cure” to illuminate the link between abortion and breast cancer.
5. Opening day of public schools to reach out to students.
6. Spring break events.
7. Demonically based concerts.
8. Halloween events.
9. Other events that may arise that the ministry feels called to confront.
Demonically based concerts, people.
