On February 21st, Pastor Gulett responded to media enquiries with the following statement sent to numerous media outlets and published by KSLA Channel 12 in Shreveport:
"Nothing has changed about our plans. I still intend to build a church building and the World Headquarters for Aryan Nations WILL continue to be right here in Louisiana. This is my home. I am here to stay till death do I part from this earth. I will not be swayed from my job as the Senior Pastor of the Church of Jesus Christ Christian or the World Leader of Aryan Nations. And I or Aryan Nations will not be run off or discouraged by the Jews, Negros, Queers, Mestizos or Mulattoes of the diversity cult. As I said of this once great Christian Republic in the interview, diversity is NOT our greatest strength, but our greatest weakness. Diversity is what will be the demise and total destruction of this nation and the chief purveyors of tolerance, diversity and multiculturalism know that too."

Pastor Gulett's credentials as Senior Pastor of the Church of Jesus Christ Christian seem unimpeachable, but this is the first time I've seen him refer to himself as the World Leader of Aryan Nations. Pastor Gulett claims his authority as Harold Ray Redfeairn's successor through a Warrant of Authority issued by Kingdom Identity Ministries, the official successor ministry of Dr. Wesley A. Swift. But Pastor Drew Bostwick of his Aryan Nations faction claims to have the real legacy of Pastor Richard Butler. We'll let those two sort it out. But in any event, Pastor Gulett has arisen at an important time to accept the mantle of responsibility and leadership for Aryan Nations, and he's making an impact. Aryan Nations is back on the map.
