As news spreads about the terrorist attack in Oslo Norway, the bigots are really coming out of the woodwork. The bigots I refer to are not Anders Behring Breivik and his ilk. I’m talking about all the left-wing bigots that are now claiming that this was an act of “Christian” terrorism.
Bigotry of any political stripe is pure evil, plain and simple.
The utter hypocrisy of it all is that these leftist bigots don’t seem to realize they are just as prejudiced as Breivik. Articles and blogs with titles like Right-Wing Christian Terrorist Anders Behring Breivik Kills at least 92 in Norway Bomb and Shooting Attacks abound on the internet.
Here are some of the comments on twitter:
I’m not going to pretend I’m a very religious person as that would be a lie. I’ve always been very pragmatic and influenced by my secular surroundings and environment.
Religion is a crutch for many weak people and many embrace religion for self serving reasons as a source for drawing mental strength (to feed their weak emotional state for example during illness, death, poverty etc.). Since I am not a hypocrite, I’ll say directly that this is my agenda as well.
If praying will act as an additional mental boost/soothing it is the pragmatical thing to do. I guess I will find out… If there is a God I will be allowed to enter heaven as all other martyrs for the Church in the past. I am pursuing religion for this very reason and everyone else should as well, providing it will give you a mental boost.
Who here knows exactly what’s meant by Norwegian Christian fundamentalist? Should such terms be tossed about without definition? Is he a terrorist because he’s Christian or a Christian who happens to be a terrorist or, if he’s a terrorist, can he really be a Christian at all? And isn’t that exactly the same points Muslims make about terrorists who claim to be Islamic?
