Dr. Nancy Wilson, Global Leader, Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC),” writes on the progressive Huffington Post.
“Americans are locked and loaded. In Ferguson, predominantly White ‘Oath Keepers’ walk fully armed with automatic weapons and munitions in the streets, and say they just want to defend the Constitution,” Wilson continues. “Their website makes a point to say that military officer Oath Keepers do not pledge to obey the President of the United States.”
