Bundy: NV Showdown with Feds a Spiritual Battle

Posted: Updated:
 ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy says the April confrontation between the federal government and his family and armed militia supporters was part of an age-old spiritual battle between good and evil.

Bundy, a Mormon, told an Independent American Party gathering in St. George on Saturday that God provided him personal inspiration in the showdown over cattle in Bunkerville, Nevada, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

The Spectrum of St. George reports (http://bit.ly/1pRx8nq ) Bundy said people from across the country rallied around him in Bunkerville because they were "spiritually touched," and they wouldn't have prevailed had God not been on their side.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management backed down, citing safety concerns. Bundy's allies subsequently released the 380 cattle collected from the range during a weeklong operation.
