Republican state Rep. Matt Shea won re-election with 58.3% of the vote, despite his radial Christian manifesto.

The Washington state lawmaker who distributed a manifesto calling for war against non-Christians was re-elected for another term, according to The Hill.

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.
