Abstract : As technology evolves, so has the ability to reach many through various platforms, subsequently strengthening globalization. These informational platforms constantly provide news to the world, which promotes fear of Muslim radical groups that perpetuate violence in the name of religion, while ignoring the threat Christian extremism poses on American soil. As America's focus and attention shifts to denying violent religious groups access into the homeland, it has taken its eyes away from those within the homeland that threaten the very liberty and freedom intended by the founding fathers for all Americans. This thesis and many more studies like it, is vitally needed, to explore the themes and messages of these growing Christian extremist groups, neutralize their growth, and ensure the safety and freedom of Americans are protected.
