Here’s a quick appendix to yesterday’s story about the civil war in the right-wing anti-terrorism blogosphere. I quoted Robert Spencer of JihadWatch as saying:
I wrote a book called ‘Religion of Peace’ — which [Little Green Footballs' Charles] Johnson wrote a favorable review of — and I looked, and didn’t find, Christian extremists who were trying to replace the Constitution with Biblical law. They’re a myth. They’re the Santa Claus of the left.
He did say this, but he added the caveat that there are Christian activists who want to institute Biblical law through legal means, and who are extreme, but not terrorists.
The people they invoke are the Christian reconstructionists like [R.J.] Rushdooney, but if you read them they’re open about their agenda. It’s not secret. And they say that they want to bring back Biblical law using Constitutional means.
I didn’t want to get into the weeds on this tangential issue, so I cut this, but it’s important to note that Spencer acknowledges the existence of these sorts of fringe Christian activists.
