"CHRISTIANS ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN MUSLIMS":

Catherine Wallace, a faculty member at Northwestern University, said fundamentalist Christians are the most dangerous threat to US security.

Ms Wallace, who is a Christian, said the country’s “religious right” was “transparently racist”. 
She said: “If [Islamic terrorists] wanted to attack an American city, they had to hijack an airliner. If they want to blow up a concert, they need to put bombs on their own children and send young men in to kill themselves.”
On the other hand, she alleged, Christian fundamentalists “in control of nuclear codes was a much, much greater threat. Christian fundamentalism is a malignant form of Christianity.”
She said the religious far-right was rooted in racism dating back to opposition to the Civil Rights campaign that saw activists like Martin Luther King put an end to segregation in US society. 
Ms Wallace said: “The religious right in its most contemporary form has an origin in Southern opposition to desegregation and to the Civil Rights Movement, a transparently racist appeal.”
She also took a swipe at the Bible and urged people to read it symbolically rather than literally. 
She said: “It’s the great anthology of Jewish storytelling. It’s brilliant, but these are very ancient stories.
“Nobody in the ancient world would have read the Bible literally.”
She said Christianity in its more moderate form could still be a power for good in the world.
Ms Wallace said: “I wanted something that would be absolutely welcoming and accessible to anybody whether they have any religious background or interest. We’re gonna meet on open, shared, common historical grounds.
“Social justice, socio-economic justice. Care for widows and orphans, which is to say the unemployable. People who can’t earn their own living. And the just sharing of the world’s resources.”
