The problem is, when someone like this nut at Ft. Hood does something like this we immediately jump to conclusions because he has a Muslim sounding name. I will not make excuses for this person that is not my job but we tend to want to hate someone when something like this happens. We need to make sense out of the entire situation so it is easy to just say, he is a crazy Muslim terrorist. It is only natural for us to want to blame someone to something to make sense out of events such as this. Was this man a terrorist? I would say yes, not because he was a Muslim but because of this actions. He caused terror that makes him a terrorist. Shortly after that event there was a similar event in Orlando Florida. Another man went crazy at his prior place of employment. Of course religion did not play any role in his actions because he did not have a Muslim sounding name so it was not even asked. But this man was a terrorist just like the man at Ft. Hood. If you cause terror you are a terrorist regardless of religion.
Now back to hate. Yesterday there was an article in the news about a USMC Reservist who beat an Orthodox Priest with a tire iron because he thought the man was a Muslim. Okay bad enough that one person would beat another person with a tire iron but to use the excuse that the guy was a Muslim. This is what happens when we jump to conclusions that the man who did the shootings at Ft. Hood is a Muslim. I would call this Marine a terrorist as well.
Hatred under any banner is bad. Hatred does not come from the God of Love hatred comes from the other Guy, the spirit of hate. I understand people are frustrated and I understand the level of hatred but I do not condone it.
An update to yesterday’s story of the Marine now it seems the Marine as sexually assaulted by this Orthodox Priest and that is why he whacked him with the tire iron. When will it end?
