Christian Extremism as a Domestic Terror Threat

Christian Extremism as a Domestic Terror Threat published on

Authored by United States Army Command and General Staff College

This book explores what, if any, domestic terror threat Christian extremism poses and follows the Constructivist approach: how ideas define structure, how this structure defines interests, and how actors take action within their organization. Initially focusing on the history and core beliefs of the Christian Identity movement and radical fringes of Dominion and Reconstruction theology, this book identifies two major underlying themes with Christian extremism: racism through the use of religion as an accelerant to promote violence and religiously motivated terrorism to support what is perceived as God’s will and law.
