Do you remember when, back in the MCF days, someone posted that he would not mourn if Bush were assassinated? According to that person, only a few days later, an FBI agent showed up on his doorstep as a result of that post.
Now, there was a good deal of debate around the veracity of that claim. But given that anything even remotely interpreted as a threat to the POTUS's life is a federal offense, that visit may have actually taken place. And even if not, the rantings of this "pastor" are about as close as you can get to an overt threat. So why is he not either in jail or under indictment right now? This, IMHO is way beyond free speech. I don't get it.
it was Buck and from my interactions with him, it was completely true. and the whole incident spooked him enough that he more or less stopped posting at MCF. the secret service had pages and pages of about everything he'd ever written online when he met with them. beyond that, he wrote a book that i bought (fiction -- it had good reviews, but i thought it was just okay) and i think he has a second one coming out soon as well.
but it wasn't that he hoped Bush was assassinated; rather, he wished that Bush would have choked to death on the pretzel that had been reported to have given Bush fits.

That's my point. If an innocuous post like that on a computer geek forum with a very narrow constituency can bring the Men in Black to your door, I would hope that this nutcase is under an electron microscope 24/7/365
Obviously one of the MCF HomeGrown RightWingNutz Dropped the Dime on him to the MIBlack, because LOTZ of us were wishing pretzels of every size shape & degree of crispness would rain down on his sorry arse back then
Even though he attempts to distance himself from the ACT It could be easily interpreted that he gives the go-ahead (Blessing?) to anyone who would... (as a patriot ((of course)) and even promises such patriots a place in Heaven WTF? )
Henry was furious, and shouted to his knights "Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?" Nobody knows whether he meant this as a death threat. What we do know is that four knights rode straight to Canterbury and killed Becket in the Cathedral.
