In this country, the vast majority of terrorism is committed by fundamentalist, right wing Christian domestic terrorists: Are All Terrorists Muslims? It?s Not Even Close - The Daily Beast

There are many, many more Christian fundamentalist terrorist groups active in the U.S.A than there are Muslim groups:
6 modern-day Christian terrorist groups our media conveniently ignores - Salon.com

And let's not forget the fact that Christian fundamentalists have enormous amounts of political power in congress and state legislatures, and are responsible for several laws discriminating against LGBTQ individuals, and have caused the deaths of several women who were unable to legally get an abortion.

And the USSC smacks down laws that are not in accordance with the Constitution.

Do you ever, at least try to escape from your tunnel vision on the issues?

Do you ever at least try to escape from your Islamophobia and fear of people with darker skin than you?

LOL. So he's a Islamaphobe and a racist, now?

Anybody who is afraid of "Islamic terrorism" but refuses to acknowledge that the vast majority of terrorists in this country are christian is indeed racist and islamophobic.

Actually the biggest terrorists in the US is BO and Crooked Hillary. Neither of which are Christians.

Hey - gotta stick up for RetiredUSN here. He's not racist, and I don't think any of us here have enough data to declare him an Islamophobe. He's retired Navy...and that tells me that he's almost certainly been to the Middle East several times just as I have.

We liberals try not to assume on grounds of what we like or don't like - that's something that's more the province of certain (but far from all) conservatives - so let's not make a habit of assuming, okay? It's a saying I learned in the military - "When you assume, you make an 'ass' out of 'u' and 'me'." We strongly discourage assumptions because assumptions tend to get people killed (and I'm not kidding - got stories of precisely that).

So...let's not make assumptions, please.

USN's not a racist, and nothing he's said has made me think he's a Islamaphobe. Why don't you stop making assumptions about people you have no idea about?

You know it doesn't, when bigots force bakers to act against their religion.

That does not make the above propaganda less insidious. But the trick of it is that the false logic of the argument would take a day to falsify and show up.

BO and Crooked Hillary's foreign policy has lead to the deaths of 100's of thousands in Syria.

What's that got to do with not being christian?

You're blaming the whole of the Syrian Crisis on POTUS and Hillary?

Oh boy.

It was one of the most biggest blunders of The Regime. That lead to many deaths. You be the judge.

Maybe you'd find Israel more to your liking.

Don't post bs links without expecting someone to expose it for what it is.
Here's your list of "American Christian terrorist organizations".

1.The Army of God
Aside from the 2009 killing of George Tiller, AoG hasn't been implicated in killing anyone in the U.S. for about 20 years. Leftists always have to use old stories of mostly defunct terror groups to prove that "Christians do it too". An Isis follower killed 49 LGBT folks on June 13, 2016. Live in the present!

2. Eastern Lightning, a.k.a. the Church of the Almighty God

Founded in Henan Province, China in 1990, Eastern Lightning (also known as the Church of the Almighty God or the Church of the Gospel’s Kingdom) is a Christianist cult with an end-time/apocalypse focus.in May 2014, for example, members of the cult beat a 37-year-old woman named Wu Shuoyan to death in a McDonalds in Zhaoyuan, China when she refused to give them her phone number.

Although mainly active in the communist People’s Republic of China, Eastern Lighting has been trying to expand its membership in Hong Kong.

You said
In this country, the vast majority of terrorism is committed by fundamentalist, right wing Christian
.
Since when is China a part of the United States?

3. The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA)

Lord’s Resistance Army—which was founded by Joseph Kony (a radical Christianist) in Uganda in 1987 and has called for the establishment of a severe Christian fundamentalist government in that country.[/B]

So both Africa and China are part of the US now?

4. TheNational Liberation Front of Tripura

Active in the state of Tripura in Northeastern India since 1989, NLFT is a paramilitary Christianist movement that hopes to secede from India and establish a Christian fundamentalist government in Tripura.

India must be the 51st state, I missed that news.

5. The Phineas Priesthood

On November 28, 2014, Phineas Priesthood member Larry Steven McQuilliams went on a violent rampage in Austin, Texas—where he fired over 100 rounds at various targets (including a federal courthouse, the local Mexican Consulate building and a police station) before being shot and killed by police.

This is the only violence I can find associated with the Phineas Priesthood. This guy was so scary, that he fired over 100 rounds and the only one who got hit was him!! Lolll. Yes, this totally outweighs Isis :lamo

Got any more links for me to destroy?

Yeah, but while there are a lot of those groups, and a number of Christian terrorist organizations have sprung up over the years, most of this is just talk.

Most of these groups don't put their money where their mouths are, so to speak.

No, not really. What you really are saying here is that anyone who doesn't agree with you is a racist and islamophobic.

Agreed.

And again, agreed.

Yeah, pretty much.
