"Radical Christianity is just as threatening"
- Rosie O'Donnell - [source]
Christian Terrorism is terrorism that the perpetrator claims is performed in furtherance of Christian goals or teachings. Not to be confused with terrorists who happen to be Christians (if it is even possible to be a Christian and a terrorist).
The most common example of Christian terrorists are abortion clinic bombers and gay clubs. It is interesting to note that none of the terrorists thus far have been a part of a Christian church at the time of the attack. They usually say that they were members when they were younger but haven't attended in years.
Timothy McVeigh is always held up as The Christian Terrorist, the type of person that exemplifies the type of person who would commit such acts of domestic terrorism. Unfortunately for people who say this, he didn't attack the federal building to further Christian goals or teaching. He was plain old anti-American. He happened to be a Christian years before the attack.
Eric Rudolph would be closer to a Christian terrorist than McVeigh, he actually attacked places because of his beliefs. However, he was not a part of any Christian organization and "prefers Nietzsche to the Bible." [source]
For some reason Rosie thinks that us bombing people in other countries is an example of Christian terrorism. Not sure how that is, just because we happen to have a huge Christian population? What a moron.
