Beschreibung

Hate groups are growing in the United States; the Southern Poverty Law Center reports among white nationalists, neo-Nazis grew the most. Some of these groups subscribe to a Christian Identity philosophy, a white supremacist and anti-Semitic interpretation of Christianity. But for these groups, faith beliefs are more about cultivating an identity, than religion. That was the experience of Frank Meeink, a self-described "good Catholic boy" who was recruited into a neo-Nazi skinhead group at the age of 13. He now lectures and writes about his life experiences as a former white supremacist, works to end hate groups' recruitment, and helps others get out of the movement through organizations like "Harmony Through Hockey" and "Life Afer Hate."
