New YouTube Video with Sword-Waving Militant

Or, is this precisely the time Michael Voris needs to be waving a sword around? "Yeah, you got swords, well, we got swords, too!"
This particular episode was about the decline of the Protestant megachurch.
Of course, there is a valid symbolism in the West behind the sword. But these days, the Bear did a double-take and was distracted. Not a huge deal, but the Bear thinks it would be better to lose the prop and go back to the newsie persona.
