Christianist Terrorism in the US

Well, another physician is murdered by a Christianist Terrorist. It appears on the face of it that Christianist terrorism increases in the face of perceived threats posed by Democrats holding national power. I’d like to see more systematic analyses of this, but it mirrors the trend in Christian hostility towards interviewers found in my 2008 Soc. of Rel article. When Democrats are in power, Fundamentalists Christians are hostile, and they appear to be more prone to commit terrorism against other Americans. It’d be a nice dissertation on the intersection between religion, politics, and violent social movements. Unfortunately, most sociology graduate students who are interested in religion are “evangelical” Christians and are too busy proving that Jesus H. Christ (and not one of those other gods) cures cancer.
