Why Christians are Blamed for Islamic Terrorism

Syndicated columnist Derek Hunter made an observation in the aftermath of the Orlando shootings that parallels my own impression at the time:

If you only watch network news and read the New York Times you easily could come away with the impression that last Sunday morning a conservative Christian man, draped in crosses and screaming “Make America Great Again” walked into a gay bar and murdered 49 people on direct orders from the Republican National Committee headquarters located in the basement of the National Rifle Association’s headquarters, naturally in a space they rent from Fox News.

    When you run out of Jews to blame, then the Christians get the blame. Whatever it is clear to thinking people that this was jihad full stop.

  • Low-hanging fruit.

    It’s easier to blame a placid group of people than face a real bully.

    Because it’s Ramadan ,when liberals are super nice to terrorists.

    It was reported that he had gay relationships and was angry that one of his hook-ups had HIV and didn’t tell him. Maybe he pledged support for ISIS as a way to divert attention away from that fact he was gay. After all in his culture dying for Allah while killing a bunch of gay infidels is awesome. Being outed as a homosexual, not so awesome. Interesting because the chattering classes may have been half right; it really had nothing to do with Islam. However, it nothing to do with Christian “homophobia” either. It may just have been one gay dude who was REALLY, REALLY ticked off at other gay dudes.
    But then again, I could be talking out of my tinfoil hat…

      That is possible. However as he scouted out more than one target, this does not add up in my books. I still think he ended up choosing his homosexual hangout, because he knew the other targets had actual security as opposed to the bar/club therefore making it an easy target. If what has been suggested, then the bar/club would have been his sole target. In any case this was jihad pure and simple and cannot be dismissed as “homophobia” or whatever.

        Yeah good point, I never thought of that…I guess he was both “fierce” and a Jihadie
