If I said I was a Radio City Music Hall Rockette would that make my legs any longer?

Especially because Fox News is entirely refusing to deal with the issue that they reported the shooter to be a Muslim.

No correction, no acknowledgement, just silence.
OK, Ha, ha,ha,ha!

Not any more or less than a lot of "Christians" I get to know here and otherwise.

This whacko had ethnic and cultural purity as his motivation, not Christianity.

O'Reilly was right. The left needs to marginalize Christians because they are a roadblock to the abortion-homosexual-socialist agenda.

I hate it when Christians try to pick and choose from the bible. The Christian religion owns the entire book, including the disgusting genocide and rape that was sanctioned by your god.

I'm not arguing the Christianity is a religion of peace or war. It does contain bits advocating death for sins which many fundy loons advocate should be enforced today.

Some one happily and gleefully shouting that every time people of different faiths kill people, while shrieking that some one of his own faith would never do such a thing, is about hypocrisy at it's finest. Especially since he excludes anyone from his own definition of "Christianity", so he confidently (http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/07/27/church.shooting/index.html - broken link) can claim no Christian would ever behave badly. Yes, each of those links is a quick search on people who killed others for Christian religious reasons, plus there are many other weirdos and ******** crusaders.

Zealotry and fanaticism is to blame more then anything. Assigning blame to all believers for the actions of one, no matter how heinous is wrong. So is letting people crusade against other faiths on the basis of lunatics as a guilt by association...while ignoring the lunatic fringe of their own.

You just gotta love the Christian only rule that allows for retroactive revocation of membership any time a fellow Christian does something evil or embarassing.

It goes very nicely with the companion rule that a Christian never does anything bad in the name of religion. A devout Christian can blow up an abortion clinic and they attempt to claim with a straight face that it had nothing to do with religious belief. However, if a Muslim spits on the sidewalk that is evidence of a plan to install a worldwide caliphate and institute Sharia law.

Right on, merlot.

At thew end of the day, how do we decide who is a servant of Jesus Christ and who is just using that name as a shield? Talk is cheap in a world where action speak louder than words.
