Quote of the Day, Part I: The “responsible” white separatist

posted by David Gibson

“The responsible white separatist community condemns this. It makes us look bad.”

–John de Nugent, an acquaintance of James W. von Brunn, who opened fire at the Holocaust Museum.

Via Steve Waldman via The WaPo.

PS: De Nugent also called von Brunn a genius but described the shooting as the act of “a loner and a hothead.” The story also has many good details, including von Brunn getting kicked out of Mensa for failure to pay dues.

…. I worked with one once….it was painful to hear someone talk, and even talk within the freedoms of our Constitution of the dominance within their minds of racial seperation…he was younger than myself, which too was shocking as I assumed that that type of mentality was present only among the older and poorly educated… but since I have met the Christ, I know that such individuals are pittifully in the sway of Satan…. racism is a moral evil, similiar to when our Christ said that whosoever calls his brother raca (fool) is in danger of hell fire… racism is merely then one of the more virulent expressions of a Satanic nature…. its a pity our laws cannot touch such a sin…but when God is not at the center of all affairs, then there is room for the growth of such who are blind with error…among others…

… in fact i remember prayerfully following the example of Dr.Martin Luther King jr. in a racial situitation and meeting God… it takes courage not to be a raciest either passivly or activily….. it takes courage to love and do what is right to all men and women as unto the Lord….. that is what Satan wants no one to do…. White Supremecists, as well as Black Supremeiscits or Red or Yellow, are in no way “responsible” before God… so even the term ‘responsible racists’ is a most tortured contradicton…

Moving on, and many, many thanks...
So...my recent vacation and related absences also coincided with an offer from PoliticsDaily.com to cover religion for them, as editor Melinda Henneberger announces here in her roundup on the site's very successful first 100 days. That means, in short, that I'll have to sign off from blogging h

Calvin at 500, Calvinism 2.0
If you thought you knew John Calvin--who turned 500 last week--you probably don't know enough. For example, that he was French, born Jean Cauvin. And if he was in fact scandalized by dancing, he was also a lot more complex than that. I explored the new look Calvin in an essay at PoliticsDaily, "Patr

Apologia pro vita sua...Kinda
 In my defense, I've had computer outages and family reunions and a few days of single-parenthood, which is always a bracing reminder of what many parents go through all the time. And this weekend it's off for a week's vacation. Anyway, hence the long absence. Apologies to those who have chec

When Benny met Barry: "I'll pray for you!"
