    When Norway suffered an attack from Christian terrorist, there was a massive outcry from the right...because the media called the Christian terrorist a Christian terrorist.

    Never mind that the attacker was a radical fanatic claiming to commit the atrocity in the name of Christianity, What's important is you don't attack THEIR radical religious religious extremists.

    Here is an oldie...but an exceptionally fine goodie.

    The first video is commentary by Jon Stewart on the Norwegian terrorist act. The video below is Colbert's take on the same.

    Here, everyone jumped the gun and just assumed that a Muslim was responsible. When it was revealed that a blonde, blue-eyed Christian was the culprit, the media had a hard time believing it, with one guy even suggesting it was a Muslim in disguise.

    Note how Fox News, who criticized calling the terrorist "Christian" in the first vid, rushes to judgement in calling the attacker Muslim:

    No, it's not.
    Art elevates. As does science.

    Spin represents a race to the bottom.

    What in the New Testament supports or condones an act of terrorism? It was a gross error to claim he was a “Christian terrorist” as nothing in Christianity condones that behavior.

    Have you not heard of the Crusades? You are an ignoramus. The Norwegian psycho wrote a manifesto based on examples of past Christian terrorists to justify his heinous act.

    I asked what in the New Testament supports or condones an act of terrorism. Are you unable to provide an answer?

    There is no such thing as a “Christian terrorist” because nothing in the New Testament supports or condones acts of terrorism.

    I think they preferred referring to him as a white supremist terrorist because white supremacy is in no way analogous with Christianity.

    That has been the case since forever.

    There is nothing about Christianity and the a gospels that actively tie these ideas together.

    If you watched the video, you'd understand that's exactly the point.

    No where in the Koran is terrorism supported; yet, simply because a terrorist calls themselves "Muslim", that's enough to call them a "Muslim terrorist". Yet, here you (and Fox News) are saying the term "Christian terrorist" is wrong; meanwhile, you conservatives insist on using the term "Islamic terrorism", an insanely hypocritical act.

    Many conservatives falsely believe Islam promotes terrorism. They believe this even though most conservatives (like you) have never read the Koran. Because Fox News repeats that lie over and over, and because their pastor repeats that falsehood, conservatives believe this is true...without ever having read a Koran in their entire lives.

    Here's an article from the Independent dispelling the myth of terrorism being promoted in the Koran:

    The Prophet Mohammed promoted legal punishment for sins and a fundamental religious and political state that was spread through warfare.

    The Mecca and Medina surrahs are written with very different flavor, indeed, but the Medina surrahs supersede the Mecca ones as they were written later. Medina surrahs condone the use of violence and the hadiths endorse political violence even further.

    I'm not going to be a cartoon about it and recognize that there are modeerat firms of Islam but let's also remember that we have been ruthlessly attacked over the last two decades by the Muslims on several occasions.

    Not to mention, they don't collectively add to our European peoples and cultures.

    If an individual claims to be a Christian who are you to say they aren't? Are you God?The Crusaders were Christians terrorists. I think not. Many peaceful Muslims claim that those killing in the name of their religion are also not really Muslim.

    You’re making an awful lot of assumptions, Tiger.

    What is your view of sharia law? Is that part of Islam or not?

    If someone claims to be a Christian but do not believe in Jesus Christ and His Resurrection, he or she is not a Christian.

    If I say I’m an outfielder for the New York Yankees, does that make me an outfielder for the New York Yankees?

    If I put on a Washington Redskins’ football uniform, does that make me a professional football player?

    Come on, kiddo. Use your head for something besides a place to put your hat.

    The Norwegian terrorist believed in Jesus Christ. You just can't accept or grasp that someone who believes in Jesus Christ and the entire fairy tale could ever possibly do anything evil.

    People who believe in Jesus Christ and His Resurrection receive God’s Holy Spirit.

    Clearly a terrorist does not have God’s Holy Spirit inside him.
