Re: The sudden "Byker Syndrome"....But! Indeed there is NO such thing as a "moderate" fundamentalist religious loon. Just like there is no such thing as a moderate Neo-Nazi.

alike......

I would also add to this lot all rightwing political extremists like the
neo-Nazis and white supremacist creeps who are addicted to their vile
ideology of racism as if it was a religion.
Take for instance Byker, the newsgroup terrorist....

Abstract

"This paper examines the social-psychological factors often implicated in
discussions of terrorist violence/martyrdom, with a particular focus on
the role of religion. We offer a brief description of the psychological
theories underpinning terrorist research before focusing on social-
psychological factors. The roles of psychopathology, irrationality and
grievance/threat are examined, followed by empirical research on the
beliefs which have been associated with the perpetration and support of
terrorist violence, and the social factors which foster those beliefs,
including social identity, socially carried interpretations, group
leadership and individual differences. Although religion is not a single,
simple causal factor in terrorist violence, religious elements often
feature strongly in the belief systems associated with terrorist
violence, and can also feature in other important fostering factors for
terrorist violence, such as the use of rhetoric. Finally, the status of
lay explanations of terrorist violence, focusing on the role of religious
fundamentalism is examined."
