4. Not a good example.
McVeigh, while a terrorist and I think a Christian, did not destroy the Murrah building because he was Christian. The 9-11 terrorists did so in the name of their religion. A more apt analogy, IMO, would be those who blow-up abortion clinics. They do that because they are Christian. They would be "Christian Terrorists."
