90 James A. Aho, The Politics of Righteousness: Idaho Christian Patriotism, (Seattle: Univ. of Washington Press, 1990). Stern, in footnote 4 of "Militias and the Religious Right," puts it this way:

    Some commentators do not distinguish between Christian Identity and Christian Patriotism because, on the American far right, most who are Identity adherents are also Christian Patriots.

    But it is important to distinguish the two. Identity comes from a 19th century belief called "British Israelism." One can be an Identity adherent in Australia, Canada, et cetera. Christian Patriots, on the other hand, only exist in America, and one can be a Christian Patriot without subscribing to Identity religion. For example, James Nichols, brother of accused Oklahoma City-bomber Terry Nichols, is a Christian Patriot who flirted with, but was talked out of, Identity theology by a Methodist friend.

92 Barkun, Religion and the Racist Right, pp. 47-49, 60-70, 106-107, 116-118, 205.

93 Christian Identity is inherently a racialized religious philosophy, but the degree of white supremacy and anti-Semitism can vary depending on the views of each autonomous local group. Here we use Identity to refer to the highly bigoted neonazi form of Christian Identity. See Leonard Zeskind, The "Christian Identity" Movement, (Atlanta, GA: Center for Democratic Renewal/Division of Church and Society, National Council of Churches, 1987). For early examples of how British Israelism came to America, see: J. H. Allen, Judah's Sceptre and Joseph's Birthright, fifteenth edition, (Haverhill, MA: Destiny Publishers, 1917 {1902}); and W. G. Mackendrick (The Roadbuilder), The Destiny of Britain and America, new revised edition, (Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1922).
