49. I am kind of sick of hearing this defensive measure
from members of all religions when someone kills people in the name of their God.

The simple fact is that Breivik considers himself a Christian, just as Osama considered himself to be Muslim. All members of every religion should seek tolerance and respect for other beliefs. If those two ideals are not followed by any member of a respective religion, they are in turn helping create an atmosphere where more hatred and in turn more violence is created. Not every racist is a KKK member or violent, but their tacit beliefs kept lynching rampant for decades in this country.
