That's not my point or purpose at all.

Instead, it's that when radical Islamists commit terrorism, we tend to emphasize the Islamic part. With radical Christian terrorists, we emphasize the radical part and almost completely ignore their religion.

There are two obvious reasons for this: (1) radical Islamist terrorists at present are far more numerous and better organized, i.e. their "movement" is much bigger and "effective" and (2) since our culture is predominantly Christian, we deny that Christianity has anything to do with Christian terrorism. It makes us very uncomfortable to think there's any connection at all.

So instead, we say Christian terrorists are motivated by something else, which is partially true. But it's also true of Islamic terrorists. We say that Christian terrorists have a twisted, distorted view of Christianity. But you could say the same thing about Islamic terrorists.

You truly are an inspiration to those that desire to use diversion and pure Liberal BS as an argument against all forces of nature and truthiness.
I seriously doubt your recruiting drive for more Republican haters will be growing after this incident.

Let Bill explain it again.
