Islamic terrorism

If you're going to call the Orlando shooting Islamic terrorism, then you're going to have to call the Charleston shooting Christian terrorism and take the appropriate action against all Christians everywhere.

And if the lieutenant governor of of Texas is going to blame the victims, then he's supporting the killer and justifying his actions. This man should not be a fig catcher, much less a senior state official.

3. Was Dylann Roof motivated by Christian teachings?

 

I don't think religion had anything to do with what he did. He went into a Christian church and shot Christians because of their race, not because of religion.

9. Then your point is a non sequitur.

The killer called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS, a religious terror organization. The connection to faith is complete.

11. Is ISIS motivated by religious teachings?

If so, then a person pledging allegiance to them is also. I guess FBI has a lot of info about his social media activity. But if ISIS is just a secular social club, then the faith connection falls apart. ISIS does share the killer's interest in brutally killing gay people, and does invoke explicitly Islamic doctrine for doing so, so that is an argument for a faith connection.

5. But they won't.

These people are not considered "Christian terrorists" -



Because there is "no such thing".

7. Right. Nothing shows allegiance to a religion like burning the most revered symbol of it. (nt)

8. That is silly and nonsensical, one is part of an international religion and true to Mohammed,

 

and part of an international movement, there is no such thing in Christianity, in fact anyone doing so would be in opposition to Jesus, which isn't true of a Muslim who can look at what Mohammed became when he became the world's first Muslim.

Mohammed was a peaceful merchant until he created Islam. "the men were beheaded, while all the women and children were taken captive and enslaved."
