Christians: The New Terrorists?

I was listening to Michael Savage's program today, and he played a sound clip that just chills me to my core. The person speaking is the person Pres. Obama has chosen as the new head of the "Travel Safety Administration". I'm sorry that I can't remember his name, I tried to google it, but couldnt' find it. Anyway, in case you don't know what that position is, he would be the guy that heads the organization to make sure we don't have any more terrorist "incidents" in the air. (or in any other transportation) The sound clip was of him telling what group poses the highest risk to safety. He said that the highest risk group would be the "White Supremacists"; which includes people who are anti-abortion, anti-government, survivalist types, and Christians. Yes....he said Christians.
So now I'm wondering if I'll ever be able to fly again. I am anti-abortion. I believe we need less government, not more, and I don't believe in socialist agendas such as the new health care reform. I am most definitely Christian. I think I could be considered a survivalist type because I believe in having food storage. I pretty much fit his definition of "white supremacist".

That's weird, I always had a different definition of white supremacy. This is the definition from the Miriam Webster dictionary:
"Function: noun
Date: 1864
: a doctrine based on a belief in the inherent superiority of the white race over other races and the correlative necessity for the subordination of nonwhites to whites in all relationships"

I certainly don't believe that the white race is superior to other races. And it's odd that he links Christians with white supremacists, because Christians believe in a Savior who was a Jew.
I sometimes wonder if we will be persecuted like the Saints of old who were cast in to the lion's den for believing in Christ. These are very scarey times.

Oh, so THAT'S why I have to go through added security checks whenever I fly! It's not because I have titanium knees, it's because I'm a Christian! :0)

I think he was being too general, I think he's thinking of the people who start their own militia's, live off the grid, shave their heads, start their own communes, dress up in white sheets and hoods, though to be honest, that isn't at all who we are getting attacked by, it's mostly the middle eastern countries who pose a threat in my eyes

Somehow D i doubt if you will be getting targeted by these measures. You don't strike me as the tyoe of "survivalist supremacist christian" that he is talking about.
