In addition to Al Qaeda, the instructor also equated Evangelical and Catholic "extremism" with that of Hamas, Sunni Muslims, the Nation of Islam, and the Ku Klux Klan.

What is wrong with all of you, that is the fundamentalist Christians that say everyone and everything is evil, well much of what you call evil and satanists were in fact made by God, What is wrong with you all ????
religion is not the only thing that causes people to do nasty things but ANY BELIEF in ANYTHING taken to the extreme can cause this, by making a persons particular outlook on something matter more than anyone or anything else. it is simply wrong to try to pin the blame on religion. anyone who believes in anything strongly enough can become a "terrorist".

I don't much like evangelicals. They're dangerous, crazy, and protected.
I tend to agree with the goofy army guy, but not in so much that I would place them above well known violent and organised groups who openly declare bloodshed and war on those who they feel oppose them.
But yeah, I see how it can be. the mindset of a believer is the mindset of someone who has given themselves to a cause. Entirely.
The three branches of modern American Fundamentalism are:
Religious (you only get to heaven through our god, our way),
Economic (to not profit for yourself and your friends is a sin), and
Political (we are right about everything, and you are right about nothing)
But the Bible contains many things we now find repulsive and wrong, including slavery, selling your female children, and abandoning your family for god...
But all markets are not free - we can but shirts from India, China and Mexico, but not prescription drugs from Canada...
And one political party running everything and branding all others as traitors is called Fascism and/or Totalitarianism, but NEVER Democracy...
