Does anyone, who is in a right state of mind, want to die a reckless death?
Terrorism is spreading in every nook and cranny of the earth. No one is safe. No country is safe. So long as an individual has an evil agenda and access to guns or other modes of killing, he will unleash a rage of terror on unsuspecting members of the public unnoticed. That individual becomes a terrorist.
These would be terrorists are disciples of many religions being practised by people around the world today. These would be terrorists don’t give a damn about anything. They just want to make a statement to the whole world.
In the past, perhaps, some of the terrorists were disgruntled souls who never achieved what they wanted in their lives. As such, they needed an outlet to vent their frustrations unto others in a violent manner. There were many other contributory factors that led to their violent actions.
Terrorist attacks are crimes and all crimes are terrifying be they a mass shooting perpetrated by a lone-wolf, a hate crime committed by an individual or groups of people, etc.
If people from one religion contend that no terrorists can be found among their followers, then the members of that religion really need to get their heads examined. It is tantamount to saying that no indiscipline exists at all among the students of a school. It is tantamount to saying that that school is filled with students who are flawless. If that were the case, parents from all backgrounds would definitely send their children to such a school. That is IDEALISM at its best.
When one member of the Christian flock commits an act of terror resulting in the deaths of many innocent people, how should people define such an act?
Is a school devoid of indiscipline among students from various races, colours and creeds?
Are Christians, from the various races and colours, devoid of terrorists in their midst?
The world has witnessed terrorists belonging to all religions from the past till the present.
Just because one member of religion A unleashes an act of deadly terror on innocent people, does that give the right for others to lump all members of religion A as terrorists? Where is the logic in such thinking?
Were there no terrorists from the Christian religion at all in the past?
Wait a minute! They were not practising Christians and they didn’t believe in Jesus Christ at all. Therefore, they were not Christian terrorists. Ignore the FACT that they were born under the banner of Christianity and that they were baptised according to the Christian religion.
Are there no terrorists from the Christian religion at all now?
Are the Christians one up on people from other faiths?
