Hutaree Militia Website Michigan Christian – A Christian militia group that was based in Michigan was raider by the FBI. They had claimed that they were preparing for the arrival of the anti-Christ. In several photos that have become available online since the bust, dozens of men are pictured holding high powered automatic and semi-automatic rifles. The raids took place in several different states, including Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. Officials have stated that the organization that was rated has reportedly been harboring fugitives and storing illegal weapons for a number of years. The FBI has apparently been building a case against the organization for quite some time. This case is unique, and different from other cases where militias were busted because there have not been that many christian based groups that have shown such violence in recent years.
A quote from their web site read “Jesus wanted us to be ready to defend ourselves using the sword and stay alive using equipment.” Most of the men who belonged to the organization lived in a small trailer in the woods around one hundred miles to the south of Detroit. Several men from the organization called a legitimate militia based in Michigan looking for a place to stay following the raids. They were denied. Witnesses of the raids have said that they “shut the whole block down like the army”, and took several men into custody. It has been reported that several of the men who were detained in the raids live with families of wife and children. It was not immediately clear who the group might have thought that the anti-Christ was, but some have speculated that the men might have considered Obama to be the anti-Christ. A vast majority of the men who were detained were right wing protesters who had shown up on the radar of several federal organizations prior to being detained in the recent raids.
