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

Jerome,

Murder does not belong to Christian ideology, only its condemnation.

This guy, who goes to church, the same as Dr. Tiller, presumably considered the latter was a murderer (of unborn babies). If we go into why and whether he should look at it that way, we'll never end here.

It is clear, however, that there is no Christian belief that would justify Dr. Tiller's murder.

Now, it is possible, maybe even probable that there are fanatics who are out of touch about what "respect for life" really means while they try to defend it and who will then resort to such acts of violence.
In that sense, you can call them Christian terrorists in analogy to Muslim terrorists.

It is a far stretch, however, to "hold their religion accountable". Their religion, in this case Christianity, is not accountable.

If anyone wants to hold Christianity as a whole accountable, it's just another 'eye for an eye' because Islam as a whole gets blame for Muslim terrorist acts which I don't condone, either.
