Jackson’s diverse religious community and other concerned citizens have planned a gathering Sunday in response to last weekend’s white pride march.
The CommUnity Gathering will include song, word, prayer and meditation and take place at 3 p.m. at Blackman Park in front of the First Congregational Church at W. Michigan Avenue and S. Jackson Street, said Jon Hart, who is helping organize the event.
“We’re talking about race and diversity and what it means to be a community,” Hart said. “We’re trying to keep it positive and not really dwell on what happened last week.”
He said the service will include people from different religious and racial groups in Jackson and focus on how everyone can exist as one community. The event was organized through Jackson-area churches but is open to anyone who did not support last Sunday’s white pride march.
Last weekend, about 10 white pride supporters marched from Loomis Park down Edgewood Street and onto E. Michigan Avenue. Marchers turned around at N. Park Street and headed back to the park. About 100 protesters followed the march.
ummm..Today is Palm Sunday of course you knew that not being a butt.

[04:13] mark_Koernke_ I just left a shouting match about 20 minutes ago with a little over a hundred militiamen who are on the move right now. The arguement was over not if but rather where to hit them. Trying to calm them down was useless and they are not going to let this lie. They will identify the straglers or pickets first and wipe them out. By what the radiio crew said the recon teams have all of the hiddy holes
[04:14] mark_Koernke_ …IDed for those they moved in and the group is infiltrating to site as we speak. I hope the locals are smart enough to step out of the way.
[04:16] mark_Koernke_ this is interesting for we may have live vids from the epicanter as it developes.
[04:16] mark_Koernke_ …epicenter…
[04:34] mark_Koernke_ sorry about that , just got off one of our back up phones with another militia unit commander. His first comment was “Well Mark, I guess that we aren’t going to chirch this morning.”
[04:35] mark_Koernke_ He then told me that as he was packing up his LBE and weapons into the armored truck he has that he asked his wife to bring the congregation together to say a prayer for the militia that may be going to war this sunday.”
[04:37] mark_Koernke_ His wife was crying in the background(I could hear her) and he said he had kissed his children good by and was now going out the door. He is a two war vet and young. He has killed many times before and she knows his moods
[04:39] mark_Koernke_ she is a good woman with two young sons. they are all supportive of the militia.
[04:40] mark_Koernke_ By what I understand the unit commander on the ground and the coordinator is the 4th RCT CMM second company commander. Good man and level headed.
[04:41] mark_Koernke_ He put out a notice that if they decide to attack they will not talk to the other side before hand or try to “talk things down” He is a good warrior and a BULL HEAD. I do not think that he will take ANY prisoners either
[04:42] mark_Koernke_ He was there in 1972 for the second tet offensive
I think these guys are hardcore.....
One of the Hutaree members called a Michigan militia leader for assistance Saturday after federal agents had already began their raid, Lackomar said, but the militia member -- who is of Islamic decent and had heard about the threats -- declined to offer help. That Michigan militia leader is now working with federal officials to provide information on the Hutaree member for the investigation, Lackomar said Sunday.
"They are more of survivalist group and in an emergency they withdraw and stand their ground. They are actively training to be alongside Jesus," he said.
