Subject: We need to talk!
I'm pretty upset with you General. We need to talk before tomorrow nights [sic] show. How dare you try to tear patriots apart at a time like this! Who's [sic] side are you on?
I couldn't allow him to get away with making such a baseless charge, so I gave him a call. It didn't help. Rather than apologize, he attacked me, saying that my request for photos of him and his men wearing Ephesians 6 Armor of God was simply a sleazy attempt to obtain "naked pictures" of his unit.
But it got even worse after that. He attacked one of our most sacred and cherished warriorly traditions, Spartan-style wrestling, describing it in a way that made it sound cheap, tawdry, and dirty.
I'm hurt and disgusted.
I don't have time to put a recording of the call up right now. I'll try to put it together as another video over the weekend and post it on Monday.
Here are a couple of short excerpts:
Gen. JC Christian, patriot: I was going to invite you to come over to the compound and meet me for some Spartan-style wrestling. That's the greatest honor...He does his radio show tonight at 11:30 pm EST. He's warned me that I'll be his topic. That's a shame. All I was trying to do was help a fellow patriot.
Prince Shannon: I'm not going to wrestle naked with a bunch of guys. That's a party I won't come too.
Gen. JC Christian, patriot: That's the greatest honor one warrior can give to another. I'm not going to give you that, now.
Prince Shannon: It may have been for that time, General, but the way it works today. You don't think I'm a warrior.
Gen. JC Christian, patriot: I don't think you deserve the honor of having my rigid shaft driven deep into your cave of shame.
Prince Shannon: No, I don't think so. I don't think that is an honorable thing, you know, to have some man's penis...
Gen. JC Christian, patriot: Don't you, don't you make it sound dirty, now.
Prince Shannon: That is dirty general. you've got to be kidding me.
Gen. JC Christian, patriot: No, it's a warriorly thing. If you understood the ways of our Spartan warrior forefathers, you'd understand this.
Prince Shannon: I don't care what the ancient Spartan forefathers did if there are a bunch of naked men wrestling around. And I know they were tough. I know that they were, you know, a real force to be reckoned with, the Spartans were. I understand that. OK, but this isn't Sparta. This is America, here. And we're going down the tubes.
And our groups need each other. We don't need to be talking about things like this. If we have disagreements that's one thing, General. I can overlook that. You believe this way. I believe that way. So what. It has nothing to do with our Constitution....General, we're losing our nation right now. We don't need to be arguing and fighting and doing things like this. We're supposed to bring our groups together...
Gen. JC Christian, patriot: You can either send me the photos or not, whatever.
Prince Shannon: Absolutely not. That will not happen, General.
Gen. JC Christian, patriot: Well...
Prince Shannon: No. That will not happen.
Gen. JC Christian, patriot: Well, OK. I offered to help. I really believe that you're probably some kind of libislamunistofascist.
Prince Shannon: You know what. Don't call me a liberal. OK, I am not a liberal... I question your leadership, right now, and i question you for not wanting to band the patriots together, because right now, the biggest roadblock to that happening is you.

Update: Prince Shannon responds in my comments section:
General! You’re offended and I am offended but jcricket is right! Let us not quarrel amongst ourselves. The fight is out there. It’s not amongst the Spartans and the Crusaders. Let’s get those warrior guys on TV to do a show on who would win. The crusaders or the Spartans? I put my money on the Spartans. You have your traditions and we have ours. But we are on the same team. I think also what is going on here with the militia groups are fighting for who will lead this revolution if it ever happens. My point is, NONE of us will. Our founding fathers were the leaders and we are not fighting for anything other than to restore our constitution and bring our nation back to GOD. We have that in common and if the two of us can’t get it together how will we unit the rest? If I offended you, I offer my apology to you and your men. But I also believe you owe me an apology for offending me and my men. By calling us liberals and mocking who we are. Just as you were offended that I don’t agree. But at the end of the day we are still brothers in Christ. I will offer my apology to you on the show tomorrow and I hope you listen and call in.
We can make history and unite the rest of the Christians and conservatives who love Jesus and their country just as much as we do. I will be asking the question tomorrow night, if we did revolt and we won, what would we change and why? Ask yourself that question as I will be thinking about it as well.
Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. 3 Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you,[a] rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4 And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you,[b] saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”
