FBI raids three southern churches said to recruit near military bases

Well, this is something you don’t see every day:

Federal agents on Thursday raided three churches near military installations across the Southern U.S., including the Assembly of Prayer Christian Church in Killeen.

“I can confirm the FBI was executing court authorized law enforcement activity today in the vicinity of the intersection of Massey St. and E. Rancier Ave., in Killeen, Texas. No additional information will be released at this time,” FBI Special Agent Carmen Portillo said in an emailed statement to KWTX.

Assembly of Prayer Christian Church is located at 1013 Massey Street in North Killeen. Videos shared on social media on Thursday show law enforcement officers at the church.

According to the Killeen Daily Herald, dozens of Google and Facebook reviews of the church refer to it as a “cult” with a “habit of recruiting Fort Hood soldiers.”

If they’re going to start raiding loony right-wing churches which act like cults, they’re going to need more FBI agents.
