Democrat Al Green Calls For Hearing On “Radical Christians”


During a Wednesday House Homeland Security Committee hearing on “The Radicalization of Muslim-Americans”, Texas Congressman Al Green(D-TX), the grandson of a Christian minister called for a hearing on the radicalization of Christians.

“If you agree that radicalization exists within all religions to some extent, would you kindly extend a hand into the air,” Green asked the witnesses testifying before the committee. He noted that “all the hands are raised.”

“I don’t think that most people oppose hearings on radicalization,” the congressman explained. “I do not, not — N-O-T — oppose hearings on radicalization. I do oppose hearings that don’t focus on the entirety of radicalization. And if you agree that we have Christians, as has been mentioned by more than one member, Christians who become radicalized, they become part of Islam and they become radicalized as is being said, why not have a hearing on the radicalization of Christians?”

Green continued, “I do think that it is a problem of perception. People who see the hearings and never hear about the hearing on the radicalization of Christianity have to ask themselves, ‘Why is this missing?’ Why don’t we go to the next step and ask, how is that a blue-eyed, blonde-haired, white female in the United States of America can become radicalized to the point of wanting to do harm to this country? We don’t have that type of hearing. That’s the problem.”

“I do know what it feels like to look like a Muslim in the minds of some people and to be demeaned in a public venue,” Green said as he has often been mistaken fro a Muslim because of his appearance. “I look forward to the day that we’ll have that hearing that deals with the radicalization of Christians in America.”
