A home-schooled, religiously indoctrinated, white male becomes a radicalized, domestic terrorist.

The Independent reports:

The Austin bomber was involved in a teenage Christian “survivalist” group that discussed weapons and dangerous chemicals, according to a childhood friend. Mark Anthony Conditt reportedly took part in a conservative outdoors club called Righteous Invasion of Truth (RIOT), in which home-schooled young people studied the Bible and were taught gun skills.

Conditt attended RIOT events with his younger sister, said Cassia Schultz, who was also involved in the group. RIOT was set up and named by home-schooled children of high school age in Pflugerville and their families. The group’s events, which also included archery and water balloon fights, included up to an hour of Bible study.


  1. Fortunately, I think more people are beginning to realize that these people aren’t radicalizing “in spite of” their Christianity, but because of it. Yes, I’ve met plenty of Christians who seem to be nice people, but every one of them is a “cafeteria Christian” — picking and choosing which parts to believe/ignore. The ones you have to worry about are the ones who “get serious” about it and start believing ALL the Bible is straight from God. That book is dangerous.

    • Hello Anderson. I agree. If you grow up hearing about the end times, how you will be persecuted, how hard it will be for you, how you wont be able to buy or sell anything, how the government is going to harm you… Then yes you would feel afraid enough to try to protect yourself and lash out. These kids are being taught at home radical stuff with no one to give them another view. It is scary how many are out there without a clue they have been lied to just to fill their churches collection plates. Hugs
