Keller at a hate march

Roderick Keller is an anti-religious extremist who, according to a December, 1994, newsgroup posting, believes that“In the long run, force works.”
Engaged in acts of hatred since at least 1994, Keller has a history of associating with and supporting anti-religious groups. The Skeptics movement is particularly atheistic and virulently anti-Christian; Keller has fanatically practiced their anti-religious rhetoric for the past eight years, along with associates Jeff Jacobsen and Arnaldo Lerma.
Keller is a long-time proponent and defender of the old Cult Awareness Network (CAN) and the American Family Foundation (AFF). Until its demise, CAN was noted for its activity as a clearinghouse for criminal deprogrammers, some of whom were convicted in deprogramming cases. Keller attended the conferences of AFF and defended the conviction of CAN in the Rick Ross deprogramming case. This conviction led to the eventual closure of CAN, an action which, not surprisingly, Rod Keller decried.
