WADSWORTH, Ohio – April 7, 2010 – The Restored Church of God’s (RCG) flagship magazine, The Real Truth, recently received unwelcome publicity due to a Michigan-based militia linking to The Real Truth website as a news source on its own site.
An organization has almost no control over where and in what context links to their website appear. One organization linking to another’s website is not grounds to assume the two are affiliated, or share any objectives. Some will draw connections anyway.
Regrettably, some have fostered the impression that The Real Truth is affiliated with a dangerous militia group, or advocates violence. Even a cursory sampling of Real Truth articles or a perusal of RCG’s website demonstrate that this is a gross mischaracterization of The Restored Church of God and The Real Truth.
We are posting this message to set the record straight and explicitly disavow any connection between RCG and any “right-wing” militia groups. We do not, and would never, have anything to do with such “entities.”
Here are just a few of the many areas in which The Restored Church of God’s position is diametrically opposed to that of right-wing militias:
Again, we explicitly disavow any connection with the Michigan militia and the militia movement generally.
