The time my dad told us kids that when the government cracks down and takes over we need to immediately head to the armory, take it over, and mount the resistance from there.
The time I read the Left Behind books’ description of a group of patriotic Americans doing just this – taking over the local armory and fighting against the UN’s takeover of the United States only to be blown up and utterly defeated – and wondered if that would be me someday.
The time I put the stones outside of my cabin at camp into the outline of the words “Get the U.S. out of the UN,” and then received extra points for this during cabin inspections.
The time I was taught about a secret UN treaty that the U.S. Senate almost passed in 1993, a treaty that would have essentially amounted to a UN takeover in the name of environmentalism and as the forerunner of a one world government.
It strikes me that there is a lot of overlap between evangelical Christians’ beliefs about the end times and the ideology of the militia movement. Both want the U.S. out of the UN and both fear that the UN is on the cusp of a global takeover. Both see anarchy in the nation’s future. One camp I attended as a teen was actually an odd combination of Christian Right politics and militia movement ideology.
