I heard an interesting theory today.Situation One: Terrorists deliberately hijack passenger jets and fly them into office buildings.People here in the U.S. and abroad say the U.S. had it coming because of our policies, past practices, arrogance, wealth hoarding, or whatever other reason we "brought this on ourselves." People who make these claims are taken seriously by journalists, enjoy tenured positions at universities, enjoy celebrity status, etc.Situation Two: Someone shoots and kills a doctor who performs abortions or explodes a bomb at an abortion clinic. People say those involved in abortions had it coming to them because of their policies, past practices, etc. People who say this aren't taken seriously - they are ridiculed and labeled as bigots, zealots, nuts, etc.The theory expressed was that the rationale offered in both situations is equally twisted - but the terrorists who flew the planes are made out to be little guys fighting for justice in an oppressed world in the only way they know how while the people who kill abortion doctors are portrayed very differently.Is it a valid theory? Is it a fair comparison? Why or why not?ShelbyBoy
