  • Respected supposed freedom-loving pastor, Chuck Baldwin (whose anti-501(c)3 church movement we largely do support), delivers a surprising and disappointing pro-government sermon condoning the murder of LaVoy Finicum and (unrelated) blanket-slams all anarchists as “not liberty lovers.” Stated that FBI ambush “was not an ambush.” Without evidence, claims witnesses untruthful and that LaVoy was reaching for a gun.
