Are all Christians rightwing extremists?
By Jonas Clark

Some Christians are concerned that their conservative Christian values could soon put them at risk of becoming terrorist suspects by Homeland Security.

A recent report circulating around the Internet has engendered the worry because of a newly distributed U.S. Department of Homeland Security Assessment called “Rightwing Extremism: Current economic and political climate fueling resurgence in radicalization and recruitment.”

The intelligence assessment was sent to law enforcement officials across the country and defines rightwing extremism in the United States as follows:

"Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration."
