Phineas priests believe they are justified in murdering people who, they say, "disobey God's laws" by performing abortions, marrying someone of another race, or being a homosexual. They rely on the biblical story of Phineas, recounted in Numbers 25, to add God's blessing to their heinous beliefs and violent actions.
The term "Phineas Priesthood" comes from the Old Testament of the Bible. The Book of Numbers, Chapter 25, describes how an Israelite man "enters into an unlawful union with a woman from another tribe (the Midianites) and brings down the wrath of Yahweh (God)"upon the Israelites. One outraged tribesman by the name of Phineas kills the race-mixing couple and thus appeases God. The action, according the UDI's Scott Mann forged a "covenant of everlasting Priesthood" between God and Phineas. This Biblical account provides the justification asserted by Phineas Priests for directing retribution against those who are perceived to by the enemies of god.

To give you a background of this episode, here's a brief history of New Orleans being the capital of corruption. The undisputed champion of the political arts was Huey Long, aka "Kingfish," whose populist program of road building and free schoolbooks propelled him to the governorship of Louisiana in 1928 and later to the U.S. Senate. The levels of graft in his administration were outrageously high even by the standards of Louisiana politics. Though he survived being impeached on charges of bribery, he was assssinated in 1935 by the son-in-law of a political opponent. His legacy remains. In recent years, 14 state judges were convicted of corruption, and more than 50 police officers were convicted of crimes that included rape, murder, and robbery. Two are currently on death row. As a former congressman once said: "Half of Louisiana is under water, and the other half is under indictment."
