Actually, I find actually say this to folks.
When you have a extremist muslim, you get a Bin Ladin.
When you have a extremist Catholic, you get a Mother Teresa.
When you have a extremist Evangelical, you get a Billy or Franklin Graham.
Got to watch out for those Mother Teresas, keep them off the buses.
There are movements in the USA that uses the name “CHRISTIAN” even as they pervert the teachings of Christ and the Scriptures.
The problem with these idiots (a kind word I am using ) in the Army is they don’t differentiate these people with Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism.
Now, even Pope Francis and Billy Graham are considered Extremist.
Christian Identity (note the use of the word — Christian)
Christian Identity is a label applied to a wide variety of loosely affiliated believers and churches with a white supremacist theology. Most promote a racist interpretation of Christianity.
Wesley Swift (19131970) is considered by the FBI to have been the single most significant figure in the early years of the Christian Identity movement. Swift was born in New Jersey, and eventually moved to Los Angeles in order to attend Bible college. It is claimed that he may have been a Ku Klux Klan organizer and a Klan rifle-team instructor.
Hutaree is a militia movement group adhering to the ideology of the Christian Patriot movement (there’s the word “Christian” again ), based near Adrian, Michigan, in the United States. The group was formed in early 2006.
The name Hutaree appears to be a neologism; the groups web site says that it means Christian warriors.
The group became widely known in 2010 after the FBI prosecuted them in federal court for an alleged plan for violent revolt. The prosecution said this was to have involved killing a police officer and attacking the funeral with bombs. The presiding judge dismissed these charges. Three members pled guilty to possessing a machine gun and were sentenced to time served.
