TIME Magazine, Nov. 4, 2009: One of the world's most brutal rebel groups, Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), is on the move from the Congo, terrorizing civilians

Since their rebellion in northern Uganda began in 1987, the quasi-religious Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) is estimated to have abducted an estimated 30,000 children as well as committing a series of massacres and other horrific human rights abuses against the local population.

Joseph Kony and four other LRA leader in 2005 were indicted by the International Criminal Court.

Kony claimsoffsite that he is a "freedom fighter who is fighting for freedom in Uganda."

He says he is also fighting for the Ten Commandments, but claims to be guided by spirits.

In an article that provides a good introductionoffsite to Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army, one writer refers to him as a "self-proclaimed mystic with a garbled pseudo-Christian ideology."

But clearly there is nothing even remotely religious, spiritual or Christian about Kony and his fellow terrorists.
