Aryan Nations 2012
On my way back from Idaho last week, I stopped at Pastor and Betty Butler's graves in the Hayden Lake cemetery to pay my respects. Afterwards I drove past the Church property which had been seized after the lawsuit against the church in 2002. It was overcast with snow on the ground and the gate was locked with a no trespassing sign attached so I climbed over and walked the 80 yards up the road to see what was left.
The entire site has been bulldozed and returned to nature. Deer were runnning around the property and only one horse was grazing. There is no sign of even the former foundations to the bunkhouse, the kitchen, church, office and school building, barn or even the pastor's house. The only indication that some type of structures were once located there is the presence of a power pole and phone pedestal. Everything else has been returned to nature.
Obviously they believe that by destroying a few buildings, they will eliminate the spiritual message. They tried that after the war with Germany by destroying every semblance of Third Reich architecture and symbolism. It hasn't worked in that case and it won't work with the Church of Jesus Christ Christian. You can destroy the physical remnants but you can never destroy an idea.
