Republican Lawmaker Who Urged War Against Non-Christians Wins Re-Election
Republican Rep. Matt Shea won 58.3 percent of the vote on Tuesday, despite the radical nature of the beliefs espoused in his publication.
> In a manifesto he published and distributed, titled "Biblical Basis for War," Shea calls for the end of same-sex marriage, abortion and the death of all non-Christian males in America if religious law is not followed.
> FBI representatives told KHQ 6 that they are reviewing the document.
> “The document Mr. Shea wrote is not a Sunday school project or an academic study,” Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich told the Washington Spokesman-Review. “It is a ‘how to’ manual consistent with the ideology and operating philosophy of the Christian Identity/Aryan Nations movement and the Redoubt movement of the 1990s.”
Shea countered that the document was taken out of context and was nothing more than sermon notes.
