A few nights ago I asked: ? Re: Norway Tragedy and it seemed like a majority of the answers thought I was off-base or stretching it a bit w/ my question.
Today I read this article which states:
When the "enemy" is different, an outsider, it's easier to draw quick conclusions, to develop stereotypes. It's simply human nature: There is "us," and there is "them." But what happens when the enemy looks like us - from the same tradition and belief system?
That is the conundrum in the case of Norway and Anders Behring Brevik, who is being called a "Christian extremist" or "Christian terrorist."
A much more eloquent way of more fully expressing the situation than my basic attempt with the previous question.
So I guess the new question really is - Do you still agree with your comments on the original question or do you see this from a different angle after reading that?Answer Question

This is not a conundrum. Some people just want to over analyze. The question I responded to this was a question that stated he WASNT being referred to as a Christian terrorist....when he IS. MY problem is that those same stations about bent over so far as to put their heads up their own butts to NOT call other terrorists ISLAMIC terrorists. Either specify the religion every time or never. I dont care either way. Of COURSE anyone of any faith, or no faith, can be a terrorist. We can add to that anyone of any gender, race, or sexual orientation. I think what some people are trying to point out is that there are entire countries with the backing of those countries military and money that are attacking and killing in the name of Islam. That's bad. And scary. And makes the killings in the name of THAT religion more prevalent. Do Christians have these mass killings in their history? Yes.......history.
