Christian terrorism

Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment:

Submitted by Mark Higgins (United Kingdom), Apr 27, 2007 at 07:41

The KKK and other groups are described as being Christian groups who see violence as a religious precept (like some muslims). But in Christianity there is an authority, the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church alone speaks for Christianity. So KKK may have a religion but it isn't Christian in the fullest sense of the word. Only the doctrines of the Infallible Catholic Church- founded by Christ- can be taken as representing Christianity. The Catholic Church is the only place where authority rests in Christianity... A problem with much dialogue between muslims and Christians is the utter ignorance on behalf of muslims that Christianity is the faith expressed by the Catholic Church. Christianity is not protestantism.
