DW The many critics of Christianity like to assume that the LRA or Lord's Resistance Army are a "christian terrorist" organisation.It's current & present leadership are not part of the Christian Church but a theocratic cult/militant that were once supplied by
Sudanese Jihadists.

Exactly so, Teddy. It doesn't stop them calling themselves Christian, any more than facts stop other terrorist groups falsley claiming to be other religions.
The group first operated as the United Holy Salvation Army before it was named the Uganda Christian Army/Movement and eventually the LRA. It adopted this name some time in 1992.

The LRA gained a reputation for brutality as it waged an armed rebellion seeking to remove the government of Yoweri Museveni, the Ugandan president, and rule the country on the Biblical ten commandments.
