All we need to do is threaten a federal judge and say we're going to pull a Waco.

Cunning plan there, Cletus.

Hold my bleach & watch this!!

If morons want to drink bleach as a sacrament, let them.  Just ban them from any government funded health care.

Stop trying to thwart Darwin at every turn.  Death is natural.  Death from drinking bleach is natural.  Death from drinking bleach because bit is part of your religion is natural and supernatural.  Let it happen.  Hell, make it happen.  Make these people drink undiluted bleach to show the world the power of their religion.

Sad.

Threatening to be burned alive after days of breathing CS gas is a strange way to get what you want, but I guess you never know until you try. I say good luck to them.

The problem is, it's not a religion.

It's literal snake-oil salesmen posing as a religion to evade oversight.

It was the US Gov't that created the Waco incident, and ended it by using teargas canisters that are known to be incendiary

Brought to you by the billion year old god for the Andromeda galaxy! You can't make this shiat up people.

I thought believing in telepathy, telekinesis, and astral projection was some wild shiat. It's pretty tame in comparison.

"Threatening to pull a Waco"?  Wouldn't the feds be the ones threatening something like that since they had a better outcome to the whole fiasco?

Somehow they try to thread a needle by calling themselves a "church" but also saying it "has nothing to do with religion." Presumably it's their excuse for evading taxes.

Came here to say this, but with the addition of having your church/compound/whatever knocked down by tanks.

The people buying the snake oil believe it will work.  Let them drink bleach.  Or let their priest show them the power of undiluted bleach.  I don't care what the fraudster actually believes.  But I do think we should make them show us the power of their faith.  Through a giant bleach orgy of the followers.  Let them learn through death.

It's why the Branch Davidians flourish today.
 
2020-07-10 6:24:34 PM  
So, let me get this straight. 4 guys who run a "church"... no compound... no group of "followers" on-sight... no armed/trained militia. Want to have a "Waco"?
I mean, I guess. In the grand scheme of things. Only the idiots themselves get hurt in this instance. Shouldn't be hard for the feds to take over a trailer and some meth/MMS sheds which are going to need to be burned down anyway.
I'm actually kind of on board with their plan (as an observer).
 
2020-07-10 6:31:57 PM  
Let's "Go Fund Me" this shiat and get it done.
 
2020-07-10 6:36:30 PM  
So, any idea why these fools weren't immediately arrested for peddling poison? Why nearly a decade of "cease and desist" and other such nonsense?

If I tried to sell strychnine as a cure for diabetes, I would be sure that my ass would have been thrown in the slammer PDQ.
 
2020-07-10 6:36:53 PM  
The part that really pisses me off is that they've been pulling this shiat for TEN YEARS and making millions the whole time. What the fark is law enforcement even for if they can't shut this shiat down?

David Koresh is responsible for the creation of the entire event. Maybe don't be a child rapist illegal arms dealing faux religious cult leader.

/the ending was wrong but the disaster's making is entirely on koresh

There have been a lot of protests lately asking that kind of question.  Law Enforcement has been spending a few decades staying busy doing something else.
 
2020-07-10 6:50:01 PM  
If I recall WACO right, the 'preacher' either burned to death or shot himself to keep from burning to death. So, go WACO. Mexico isn't going to help because they're still pi$$ed off about Trumps Wall.
 
2020-07-10 6:51:02 PM  
And just like that, Trump has 4 highly qualified candidates to replace Alex Azar if he steps out of line.

Waco was a success. Some fundamentalists got the apocalyptic ending they were wishing for. The rest of us are rid of the nuisance.

Wife and I were on a walk yesterday morning when some dude pulled up with Number One's One Else just absolutely blasting on his car stereo, like so loud I was able to clearly recognize what I was hearing even though the car was otherwise sealed shut. I was mainly shocked because the guy looked like he would have been too young to watch Bleach when it first aired

/damn good taste though

So because he was accused of those things, he and all those other men, women and children deserved to die
Wow - you are one sick bootlicking piece of crap

You might want to go watch Waco on Netflix, since I'm sure you can't be bothered to read the FBI Negotiator's and survivors accounts of what went on. The ATF and FBI were out acting like a Paramilitary outfit and not law enforcement. More over, use of those tear gas canisters by our troops against an enemy would be considered a war crime, but it's a-ok to use them on US Citizens by "law enforcement"

OK.  Confiscate the children and make the adults show us the power of bleach.

The children come from bad stock.  Their genes are tainted.  Their minds are tainted by stupid parent's.  They can't be fixed.  So we have to let them go.  Children are easy to make, so we can produce replacements.

Your morality is a morality of letting bad genes survive.

I'm not producing children and making them drink bleach.  While you might be my superior, you are saying that because we have unregulated human production, we have to preserve the morons and protect them from drinking BLEACH.  That somehow the warnings were not enough, and we need to tax non breeders and breeders who don't drink bleach so that we can keep bleach drinkers, and their progeny alive.
