Texas Taliban

Lee Fang writes at ThinkProgress that "[a]n 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.

Dan Savage observes that "[t]hey're also going after churches they believe to be insufficiently Christian (Episcopalians, Christian Scientists, Unitarians), palm readers, people who practice witchcraft, and anything and everything that might create a 'demonic stronghold' in Amarillo." Teddy Partridge at FDL is also not averse to dropping multiple T-bombs on them, writing that "Armies of God are not the American way, unless this country has become a theocracy:"

We have one Army, the United States Army. And our Army fights for America, not for any single God.

This is the American Taliban, the American Hezbollah, the American Sharia enforcers. They seek to impose their religion's strict codes on all their countrymen. They are not exercising free speech; they are imposing religious views upon others, through harassment, intimidation, threats of violence, and what they call 'warfare.'

This is religious-based terrorism.
