Christians are terrorists too. One caught today.

WICHITA, Kansas (CNN) -- The man whom Wichita authorities arrested in the area's notorious BTK serial killings lived an unremarkable life as dogcatcher for suburban Park City, one-time president of a Lutheran church and father of two, according to media reports.

5. Not in the Least Surprised
If, as Samuel Johnson said, patriotism is the last refuge of the (false) scoundrel, then (false) religiosity must be the next-to-last refuge.

6. Technically, a terrorist is someone who kills for political reasons.
I don't think he envoked the name of God when he killed. Telling by what neighbors said about him, he seemed to be bi-polar and a prick.

7. Let's go back through history and count all of the victims of torture and
various styles of death inflicted on people endorsed and even carried out by Christian Church's and weigh them against all the other religions and see who wins. Any historians in the blog tonight? I bet the Christians would win hands down.

10. An act of terrorism is when someone goes into another country
or culture and blows things up and kills to prove a point or to get that country or culture to do what they want.

19. Great way of putting it! A couple others, too:




It's bad enough that many Republicans think they're terrorists. We don't need Democrats to think they're terrorists.

13. Perhaps the title would be less inflammatory
if you said something like "Christians *can* be terrorists too. One caught today."

Huge difference in one word. Maybe that was your meaning, maybe not.

18. Doesn't surprise me.
Being a president of the church board is more often political, than faith-based. And I'll tell ya, some of the church leaders I've worked with could easily fit into the category of terrorist.

Thank you for not saying Pastors are terrorists. That's the usual crap I have to contend with. This crap was refreshingly honest. :freak:

20. People with glasses are terrorists
People arrested on Fridays are terrorists

Fathers are terrorists

hmmm...maybe this logic is flawed.
