It's stupid to say that the religion of Islam has nothing to do with Islamist terrorism.

But then people say that about the religion of Christianity whenever Christian terrorists, like Eric Randolph and Wade Page, kill people. Their religion and how it inspires their heinous actions rarely even comes up.

You seem to have this everlasting liberal need to make sure people know that the bad white Christians equate to a few bad apples in Islam.

Wade Page was a white supremacist, that hated virtually anyone that wasn't a white supremacist. A new-age Neo-Nazi, his band sang lyrics that would have even some ardent racists blushing.

Eric Randolph? Again, this Church of Israel dude was aligned against Jew, government, and the usual lash out against control guys.

It's certainly nothing new to have hate groups that are involved with killings, or even more organized terrorist attacks. Religiously motivated? I think one of the only links would be those that use abortion as their motivator, or their hatred of Jews. But they generally hate blacks, gays, and a ton of other people not in their clans. They are primarily militant racists that use terrorism sometimes as a means of lashing out.

"It's stupid to say that the religion of Islam has nothing to do with Islamist terrorism.

Especially when you have terrorists quoting the Quran during their hate videos, or after attacks. It's highly prevalent, and has been for quite some time. Decades in fact. To try and equate white supremacist attacks and Christianity is not only a stretch, it's sheer stupidity. But like many liberals, you try so very hard to do this.
