My Life as a Right-Wing Extremist
by Michael G. Mickey
Extremism. I know a lot about it. More than I'd like to, quite frankly.
Department of Homeland Security officials have issued a report which links people with pro-life, anti-illegal immigration views, teachers of end-time prophecies, and veterans of war with "right-wing extremist" groups.I seem to meet all the D.H.S. qualifications to be a right-wing extremist:
This is probably the worst day for me to be thinking about this, on the second anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre, so I'm going to walk away from my keyboard for the rest of the day where addressing this issue is concerned, but before I go: It's moments like these when I, as a Christian who believes that the return of Jesus Christ is near, can't wait for that day to arrive so, in part, I can give poor Janet Napolitano and the Obama administration one less extremist threat to worry about, assuming the Lord should come for His Church before the president's term in office ends, which may or may not occur.
I don't know how many times per week I think of the Scriptures where we read that righteous Lot found himself "vexed" by what he saw going on around him prior to his deliverance from Sodom and Gomorrah, but it's more than a few to be sure. (2nd Peter 2:7-8) It gives me hope when I can find very little otherwise, quite frankly.
Luke 17:28-30: Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
If we are blessed, the Department of Homeland Security may be able to move on to more pressing matters of concern in the not-too-distant future - REAL issues worthy of being concerned about.
