Practically my neighbor

They call this the Bible Belt and the evangelists make a big show of preaching on street corners and parading their piousness. But all too often I hear about ministers in these churches preaching hate against "the other" and barring those even of their own faith who don't conform to their purity tests from attending their services. This guy is especially egregious though.
This past Tuesday, the FBI arrested 26-year old Christian radical Justin Carl Moose in Concord, NC for “providing information to create explosives” to “blow up a North Carolina abortion clinic.” Through his conversations with an FBI informant and his Facebook page, Moose expressed virulent “anger at abortion doctors, President Barack Obama’s health care plan, and plans to build a mosque near ground zero in New York city.” He goes on to describe himself as “the Christian counterpart to Osama bin Laden” who “has learned a lot from the muslim terrorists and have no problem using their tactics.”
This "Christian" terrorist leaves less than an hour from me. In the course of the sting operation he gave explicit instructions to the FBI informant on how to carry out a murder spree. The scary part is, if you read the comment sections in the local media under any story having to do with religion, such as the county commissioners who wanted to open their meetings with Christian prayers only, you'll see this sort of hateful intolerance is bubbling under the surface all over the state. This guy is more blatant than most, but I doubt he's the only one willing to kill for Jesus. Just crazy.
