    Bridging Your Darkened Past Toward a Brighter Future

    Bridging Your Darkened Past Toward a Brighter Future

    Kerry Noble joins co-hosts Jeff Schoep & Acacia Dietz for episode 19 of #BeyondBarriersPodcast. Since 2001, Kerry has been speaking out against hate, violence and the radical right. Kerry was involved with a group called CSA (Covenant, Sword & Arm of the Lord) during the late 1970's until they were raided by the FBI in April of 1985. CSA was a racist, paramilitary, survivalist, extremist group in rural Arkansas that believed in Christian Identity (a racist offshoot of Christianity). In this episode, Kerry tells of how in June 1983 he came within seconds of what could have been, at that time, the largest domestic terrorist act in US history, when he took a bomb into a gay church. But how the actions of the people in the church changed his perspective and he did not go through with the plan. This is an episode you won't want to miss.

    Kerry Noble has published two books "Tabernacle of Hate: Seduction Into Right-Wing Extremism" and "Tabernacle of Hope: Bridging Your Darkened Past Toward a Brighter Future" which can be found on Amazon.com - Check out Kerry on Twitter: @KerryNoble_CSA
