I'm not stretching that far; in 1985 the FBI considered them "the second most dangerous domestic terrorist organization." They were around for at least a decade. Homegrown "Christian" terrorists.
No, I'm not "advanced" anything...:) I am practicing mindfulness these days, in the sense that I try to stay present and aware and quiet, actually. I admit I am noisier here than is necessary. There is an ever-shifting definition of the word "radical" and opinions and views fluctuate wildly and often (if one looks at polls and surveys).

It only took 18 to cause mayhem on 9/11, single individuals on multiple other occasions and two the other day.I don't know of any extreme Fundamentalist Christian sects trying to take over the country by force using murder as a tool.

I don't support the "splinter" faction of Islam that represents the "radical jihadists." Nor do I believe in fundamentalist Christianity. Both are extremist, rigid, and inflexible in their views; fear-based, imho.
