Oslo blasts, Norway island shootings - An extremist christian's rampage

These few decades, we always hear of "muslim terrorists" or "islamic terrorists" in the media.

But we know that NOT all muslims are terrorists. Majority of the muslims in the world are moderate and peace-loving people.

And just a few days ago, we saw a different kind of terrorism. It is terrorism that is both religious and political. Anders Behring Breivik bombed a building in Oslo and went on a shooting spree to murder Labour Party youth members who were supportive of immigration.

Before he went on his rampage, he wrote that it was essential to "fight" for a "Judeo-Christian Europe", praised the rejection of "anti-Jewish views" and stated that "the new Conservatist ‘new right.." He also expressed some of his "extremist christian views" in the writings.

According to Reuters and the BBC, deputy police chief Roger Andresen described information found on Breivik's websites as "so to speak, Christian fundamentalist".

Yes there are terrorists in most religions (the extreme ones), and Christianity is no exception. They are called "christian terrorists" because they based their teachings on the bible, but with a lot of twisted interpretation.

Anders Behring Breivik is not the only extremist christian in the pages of history. There are many more such extremists who commit atrocities in the name of religion.
