Christianity, Cults, and Right Wing Terrorism

Many progressive Christians have expressed concern about the prevalence of Christians in the right wing terrorist and militia movement. They complain about Christians who fall for conspiracy theories. In actuality these movements have much in common with the structure of Christianity. They both ask you to suspend belief in reality and facts. Both believe in conspiracy theories. In the case of Christians the conspiracy is about people out to get them. Both have an air of moral superiority, believing they are the chosen by God and will be rewarded at a later time. Finally, both have a corner on truth.

So indeed it is not the least bit surprising that Christians are attracted to conspiracy theories and right wing movements. Written by Paul Dribin
