Radical Behavior Not Limited To IslamistsTopics: International News
As a follow-up to previous posts on Hyscience, radical behavior doesn't seem to be limited just to Islamic fundamentalists. In the U.S. just this weekend there was a report of the Presbyterian Church being threatened with fire bombing for their support of the Palestinians. Also, you may recall that a radical Christian named Timothy McVae committed the Oklahoma City bombing that destroyed an awful number of innocent lives. I bring this up not to criticize any religion, merely to say that radical extremists of any religion are a problem to peace and tolerance for all of us. This is regardless of whether or not we are peace-loving Christians, Jews, Muslims, any other faith, or no faith at all!
We have questioned the lack of outcry by the Muslim community regarding fundamentalist Islamists' acts of terrorism. Christians and Jews should also be quick to condemn acts of violence from extremists that claim a connection with Christianity or Judism.
