Congressman calls for investigation into radicalization of Christians in America

Raw Story reports that Rep. Al Green, a Democrat from Texas, suggested that if Congress is to investigate the "radical Muslims" in America, then it should not limit itself to just one religion and should also investigate the radicalization of Christians. His remarks were made during a Homeland Security hearing on the "radicalization of Muslim-Americans."

Congressional investigations of Muslim-Americans have been spearheaded by Rep. Peter King (R-NY).

Green does not oppose hearings on radicalization, but does not believe that Muslim-Americans should be singled out. "If you agree that we have Christians — as has been mentioned by more than one member — Christians who become radicalized, become a part of Islam and they become radicalized as is being said, why not have a hearing on the radicalization of Christians?"

Commentator David Pakman agrees with Green, citing the fact that when it comes to domestic terrorism, terrorism perpetrated by American Christian citizens is more prevalent than domestic terrorism perpetrated by Muslim-American citizens.

    I think it's a very good idea to investigate all religious radicalizations and maybe even stop them.

    they will find that christians are not radical at all but those whom call themselves christians. Christ set the bar, he set the example of God the Father of Abraham and to route out those in the christian sectors only prove the hatred for Christ and his servants who go about doing good in the world. So don't believe all that is said especially when you hear that christians turned radical. No doubt there is radical beliefs and doctrines of all religions but your true christians are God like and have proven time and time again to lead the way towards Love for one another and for God himself through the Spirit of Jesus Christ His only begotten Son.
