The “Atheist” Neo-Nazi Just Convicted of Triple Murder Was No Atheist

In April of 2014, white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, shot and killed a boy, the boy's grandfather, and a woman near a Kansas Jewish community center while shouting “Heil Hitler!” In a dark twist of fate, all three victims were white Christians. This week, Miller was convicted of capital murder. At his trial, he said he "wanted to kill Jews, not people,” and responded to the verdict with "Sieg Heil" and a Nazi salute. Miller, who ran for several offices including U.S. House and Senate, has been described as "one of the pioneers in the modern hate world” and “a central figure of the white power movement.”CNN has reported that Miller is a neo-pagan who also “self-identified as an atheist," who uses anti-Christian rhetoric.Here I take a deep dive into that characterization, and I will explain at the end why I think it’s worth the effort.

Wait a minute? We have two members #666? We need to have a to-the-death "Satan Off" to determine which of you is the REAL 666. Two men enter, one man leaves!
