Vicious attack on the name of Christians in Norway

The appellation "Christian" is the real victim of the attacks in Norway. God forbid that any discussion might go on about the business of identifying the demon libruhls as the enemy of all that is good and noble as Brevik apparently did, no, what we need to do is condemn use of the word "Christian" to describe this self-described Christian in Norway.

His belief that he was a member of the Knights of Templar 2.0 fighting against the Muslim hordes was maybe, just possibly, a part of this story.

Jon Stewart and gang outdid themselves in reporting on this one:

The murderer, according to his written manifesto, uses the word 'christian' to mean, non-Islamic European. He also states (paraphrasing) that he has not accepted Christ as his savior.

The hatred of Jesus and His absolute message has existed for 2,000 years. That's not a topic of interest on this board and I will not pursue it.

But the bias of the media (with this being another example) should cause any intelligent person to know better than to accept their remarks without careful review.

John Stewart cracks me up. He did a nice job on this one.

It seems to be what religion the violent people belong to.

The actions of one Muslim reflect the actions of all Muslims.

The actions of one Christian has noting to do with his religion, or other Christians.

It's just another case of what my guy does is OK but if your guy does it it's bad. As the Stewart piece pointed out, associating the Norway nut job as a Christian is wrong because he does not represent anything Christianity stands for (which is right) but holding all Muslims guilty for the crimes committed by some nut job who claims to be Muslim is OK, because he said he is Muslim.

Do as I say and not as I do. That just works so well.

The mistake most are making is trying to rationalize this creatures behavior.
You can not rationalize irrational behavior.
He was/is a total nut job. Best just accept that & move on.
In years gone by, ones like that would have been put in an asylum long ago.
There is even an attempt at a link to the Freemasons is some of the stuff being reported. An organization that has brothers from all religions including Muslims & Jews.

Best just accept that he was a total nut case & deal with him.
The biggest mistake was that he was captured alive.

The man had no religious affiliation. Just read his supposed manifesto.

People you are just repeating falsehoods when it would take a brief moment to speak the truth.

Hate Christ, Christians and/or any religion that you chose but don't let that stop your mind from functioning.

When interviewed the most frequent source of news (by their statements) for young people (which was either 25 or 30 for this survey) was the Daily Show.

PS: John Stewart, by his own admission, has an agenda and a bias and he does not claim to be even-handed in his ridicule or humor.

You miss it entirely.

You do not call him a 'christian' as defined by the dictionary because the murderer himself states that is not who he is.
