Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This country, and most of the world, have never let the Muslims get away with the "those people that do those atrocious acts are not following what the Qur'an preaches" line. We call them Islamic terrorists, Islamic fundamentalists, Muslim terrorists, whatever. The official and unofficial news media casually name-checks their religion thousands of times every day.

These things ingrain in people's minds, y'know. Which is why this whole Muslim = Evil meme has taken hold so pervasively.

We can hold their religion "accountable". So why not make sure you're out of the glass house before you do something about that stone-throwing itch?

"Accountability" never hurt anyone who is trying to make themselves better.

I do understand that this heinous act hurts your decent religious self and I do recognize that you are on the side of what is right and I do apologize to you, in advance, for sounding maybe a bit too harsh than what I really am...

... But in return, I want you to call it for what it is. ....

This is an act of "Christian terrorism", and by extension, it was carried out by "a Christian". Whether anyone is proud of it or not.
