I'm wondering about the groupthink aspect of all this.

Is the average peace-loving, law-abiding Muslim any more or less responsible for the acts of Muslim criminals than the average, peace-loving, law-abiding Christian is responsible for the criminal acts of Christian criminals.

Maybe "responsible" is the wrong word. But why all the calls for "good Muslims" to denounce "bad Muslims" in these cases. Does anyone call for "good Christians" to publically denounce "bad Christians" and then imply if they don't do so loudly enough then they too are suspect? We don't typically require "good Christians" to prove their goodness. We take it as a given.
