Hutaree Militia Assault Rifle Camo Wedding

March 30, 2010

(ChattahBox)— Apparently the family that wields assault rifles together, stays together. Well, at least in a federal penitentiary. The nine members of the bizarre Michigan-based Christian militia group, named Hutaree, devoted to battling the federal government as the anti-Christ, arrested over the weekend and charged with seditious conspiracy, attempted use of weapons of mass destruction and other charges, lived their family lives much like a cult. What motivated such violent and cult-like behavior is hard to figure out, but Talking Points Memo’s uncovering of the Facebook wedding photos of David Brian Stone and Tina Stone, formerly Tina Kelley, gives us a glimpse of their madness.

The Hutaree leader, David Brian Stone, his wife Tina and two sons Joshua Matthew and David Brian, Jr., were among those arrested. Joshua was a fugitive, until his arrest Monday evening. The group planned to murder local law enforcement officers, by several methods, including luring a cop to his or her death, with a fake 9/11 call.

Hutaree’s Web site is filled with extremist and paranoid beliefs about the impending Apocalypse, as Christian Warriors battling the anti-Christ. Hutaree’s motto appearing on its home page declares, “Preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive.” “Jesus wanted us to be ready to defend ourselves using the sword and stay alive using equipment,” reads the Web site.

Against this backdrop, the wedding photos of David and Tina Stone, paint a stark picture, with the groom and other male members of the wedding party dressed in military fatigues, holding assault rifles. The bride and her bridesmaid, are also shown wielding large assault rifles. The wedding party is shown posing before camouflage netting, a Gadsden flag and the “Colonial Christian Republic” Hutaree flag.

The militia-themed wedding party includes Stone’s two sons and a small boy, who is also shown holding an assault rifle.

The photos were posted on the Facebook page of Tina Kelley. Additional photos of the March 13 wedding of Joshua M. Stone, 21, and Shannon Witt, can be viewed on the Facebook page of Karen Belcher.

The group Hutaree also maintains a Facebook page. Hutaree updated its page on March 2 with the bible verse John 15:13: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
