Do you see what is happening here? I could give you the list of recent atrocities committed by Christian both in and out of the US.
- Tim McVeigh
- Abortion Bombers
- Anti-gay mobs in Uganda
- The Lord's Resistance Army
- The Serbian genocide
- The current burning of children as witches.
You will ignore anything that isn't Muslim to fit your narrative. This in spite of the fact that of the 120 people killed by terrorists in the US in the past 12 years, only 33 were killed by Muslims.
The two exceptions to years in the US with more than 20 deaths to terrorism were Tim McVeigh and 9/11. Only one of these was committed by Muslims.
The real question here is why do people ignore terrorist acts by one religion while focusing on acts by another one?
You seem like someone who should be able to answer that one.
I could have won a million bucks betting that you would offer McVeigh as an example of "Christian Terrorism."
He may have been a Christian but he didn't base his act, in any way shape or form, on Christianity.
Eric Rudolph based his terrorism on abortion. I may have have missed it but I didn't see anything from him that suggested he might want to convert or kill infidels or establish a Christian theocracy. He was, clearly a terrorist, but it's a stretch to suggest that he was a "Christian Terrorist." An "Anti-Abortion Terrorist," yes, but are you asserting that only Christians are anti-abortion?
Do you even know the body count for the rest of your list?
You really had to stretch to find "Christian Terrorists," among tribal conflicts in Africa, and children being burned as witches? Hideous if true but comparable to the slaughter in NYC, London, Bali, Mumbai etc?
How conveniant that your time line seems to disregard 9/11.
33 people were killed by Islamists in the past 12 years. Actually, your chronology is full of shite since more than 3,000 people were killed by Islamists in the past 12 years. (Hint: It's May, not October)
People are not ignoring Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Sikh, "acts of terrorism" in favor of focusing on on Islamist acts for any reason you can conjure within your Liberal confines. The plain and simple fact is that unambiguously, Islamist terrorist have been responsible for the deaths of thousands, and every other religious nut (not-with-standing the fact that your definition is highly flawed) are responsibl for the deaths of tens.
People are focusing on Muslims because Islamists are, rightly, the #1 Bad Guys
Yes, they shouldn't lump all Muslims into the category of murderous Islamist terrorists, but you just can't leave it there, you have to argue (feebly) that Islamist terrorist are no more prevalent than the miscreants of any other religious group. This however is patently false.
Todays threat from religious fanatics is overwhelming Islamist, and yet you continue to deny this truth.
