In the email, Johnston also encouraged group members to sell their own prized possessions, suggesting selling jewelry and other valuables to produce funds for donation to Personhood Ohio. "I told my wife just recently," he wrote, "'We get rewarded based on how much we sacrifice.'"
As an additional incentive, Johnston in the same email offers members the chance to win $5,000 if they send a $25 gift to the organization or get 25 signatures on a personhood petition. A diagram asks, "What Would You Do with $5,000 Dollars?" and includes "buy some guns!" as a suggestion.
In 2011, Plunderbund reported that Johnston had written a novel "fantasizing about American anti-abortion heroes killing evil, foreign abortionists." He has also admitted to wanting the United States to become a theocracy.
