Not only the name -- there's a picture of him next to the gate in the first article and then the mugshot of him in the 2nd! Doofus! Nothing like trying to keep things on the low down and then posing for a news picture.

I don't believe they were looking for a remote place -- I bet they already were farming it. The religous group probably go wind of it when the dopes crossed onto their land and when the investigators came around.

He said for years that he saw a vision that 2008 would see the beginning of the end of this country. He's convinced now that he's correct. I don't know if they have women and children there. I know he has some children, I know they have some small cabins there besides the main house and the church. I don't believe too many actually live there all the time. He took in a fellow from Alaska I knew and used to talk to a lot, when he had cancer, was out of money and on the verge of being homeless. He stayed at one of the cabins, which was empty, until he died from cancer there. That tells me it must only be him and his other preachers staying there all the time. But there is a shooting range there used frequently by members. Vermont lends itself well to someone who collects guns since there are almost no restrictions (other than on silencers). He is definately into guns.

I have said many times Northern Vermont isn't filled with the far-left like Brattleboro or such. You might be surprised how many like him are around in VT.


He is Fundamentalist? hmmm, I have summered in Vermont for 25 years and ski there every winter, i travel there alot and love the place. I am a fundamentalist christian and boy cant believe there are others like me there. I can never find a church to visit on sundays, no conservatives left up there, so i cant believe he is a fundamentalist! maybe he is a christian Identity movement which is not christian at all, or he is Evangelical,different than fundamentalists>>who are usually baptist.

He's his own denomination really, he dislikes organized Protestant denominations and he hates the Catholic Church even moreso. But his beliefs are all definately fundamentalist, regardless of his refusal to put himself in any such category. I'm not sure you'd be interested too much in visiting his church, it's a real tight-knit group.

There's conservatives up here, mostly in Northern VT. But not many fundamentalists. The conservatives here tend to be more of the libertarian sort than the Southern religious conservatives.

You can't find a church in VT?
I find that hard to believe.

Hmm. I thought Vermont, like Maine was friendly towards keeping public access to lands, state land, timber company land, and large tracts of private land.

The responses here would suggest otherwise.
