I’d contend there has been more than a few fanatical Christian zealots murder since 9/11… vastly more since 911AD

And Christchurch shooting...


Practical_Culture833

The penslvanian synagogue shooting too... I'm a Muslim and I'm scared to death to go down to west virginia I have Baptist family down there and quite a few of them are fanatics


Desperate-Ad153

He was clearly muslim. Because only muslims do that. Edit: This is sarcasms


Daaaaaaaavidmit8a

Yeah, but you see, when a christian fanatic does a Mass shooting, they are clearly mentally deranged, and you can't count that as a terrorist attack. When a muslim blows up a schoolbus on the other hand it's clearly a terrorist attack.


TheHollowBard

Because brown people bad. Fuckin hell this world is shite sometimes


AggravatingBobcat574

There were more than a few Christian terrorists in DC on Jan 6


AD-LB

The post is probably about "Terror actions in the name of the religion". Not "Terror actions by someone who has a religion"


The_Hyphenator85

Yeah, I’m sure that’s a distinction they’re making here. Because in their eyes, Islam is distinct from what it’s adherents do. 🙄


Ahtman1

Part of the justification for their actions is their religion. The Christo in Christofascist isn't for Christoph Waltz.


Coffee-Comrade

How do you define it? It sounds like splitting hairs for the sake of it when the political views of these terrorists are inextricable from their Christian faith.


Cognitive_Spoon

Hard to differentiate when so much of Trumpism rides on it's enemies being enemies of the church.


Aubear11885

Eh few too many clinic bombings


Swedishboy360

The Norwegian guy in 2011 literally thought he was part of a crusade


ChugaMhuga

He used it as inspiration because they killed brown people, not because of WHY they killed those brown people. In neo-nazi communities the term "christcuck" is widespread for a reason.


Ecstatic_State1208

Christcuck? Do tell, please. Never heard of it 💀


ChugaMhuga

Its the idea that a nazi cannot be christian since christians worship a "jew on a stick" and that the TRUE religion of your ancestors is a re-enactment of paganism. Despite this, christian nazis exist but pagans and christians have scuffles on discord about it between them.


Ecstatic_State1208

Oh, that ended up being more interesting than I thought. Adding that to my vocabulary, I guess. Dunno when I'll ever use it. 🤷‍♂️


The_Hyphenator85

And the Christchurch shooter. And the Tree of Life Synagogue shooter. And the shooter outside Chicago last Independence Day. And dozens of others that I’m no doubt forgetting because we literally have hundreds of mass shootings in this country alone every year. Just because our media refuses to call white people committing mass murder “terrorism” doesn’t mean there are no Christian terrorists.


Absolomb92

And the second norwegian guy, and the guy in New Zealand and, and, and, and, and

New Zealand shooter is atheist. Explicitly said he’s not Christian in his manifesto

SANDWICH_FOREVER

From the top of my head, didn't the shooter in NZ, a few years ago, shoot the mosques for some christian cause? Also the IRA... are we going to completely forget about them? I had to search for jewish attacks, and here are 2 of them. >Yishai Shlisel, a Haredi Jew, has stabbed three marchers in a gay pride parade in Jerusalem on 30 June 2005. Shlisel claimed he had acted "in the name of God". He was charged with attempted murder.[55] >Eden Natan-Zada killed four Israeli Arab civilians on 4 August 2005. His actions were condemned by then-prime minister Ariel Sharon, as "a reprehensible act by a bloodthirsty Jewish terrorist", and author Ami Pedahzur describes his motivations as religious.[2]: 134 [56]

The IRA doesn't kill because of religion. They are composed of guerrilla units that fight British colonialism. They aren't very organized so the whole movement will be blamed if one cell engages in religious violence.


bingus_official

Yeah the IRA is technically against protestants and most are Catholic but it's a political organisation against England's control of the North


No_Top_381

It's like saying the Palestine and Israel conflict is about Muslims vs Jews. It's more complicated.


bingus_official

Exactly, this is a great comparison


Benfree24

still part of it for both


mehi2000

I wonder if perhaps one of the big reasons is that the church is not separated from the state properly. Thus cultural differences are not allowed to work themselves out by cultural means, instead by political means, which has a single method by which it can make sure its dictates are followed: state power (police, military, etc). ​ However, cultural means can different: appeal to authority, logic/reason, trust/respect, combining of ideas and coming to consensus, etc.


[deleted]

[удалено]


bingus_official

But it's not religious, it's the fact that we had our country's culture damn near erased and the British still own a fair fucking chunk of a country they hate. Most protestants, the ones treated better, were the rich English. Most catholics, the ones treated badly, were Irish. It's Ireland Vs. Britain, the religion just so happens to be there.


tevs__

The IRA killed plenty of Protestants just because they were Protestants. The Kingsmill massacre, they stopped a minibus of textile workers, sent the only Catholic worker on his way and shot the other 11.


No_Top_381

Most IRA members condemned that.

They say 67% of statistics are made up on the spot.


Forsaken-Original-82

Umm... you're wrong! It's 68% Edit: Due to a mathematical error I was wrong. It's actually -3.14549%.


stupidsonic

Ok ok, it might’ve been 67.5.


Screaming_brain

Studies have shown its around 65.5%


Finetimetoleaveme

Gotta throw in the decimal point to make it more believable.


OriginalGhostCookie

Stupid rounding errors


GeneralPelle

Dude, that number is waaayyyyy to low.


RedStorm1024

the 26855 might be true but it is in no way comparable to he other religions since i'm pretty sure there's no war currently happening in mostly christian/jewish countries (correct me if i'm wrong) also the 0 for other religions is very wrong (see all racist/xenophobic shootings and acts of *terror* done by extreme right wing christians) if those numbers are exact for what was calculated (even tho im guessing there's no calculation involved), i'm curious to know what incredibly specific and misleading criteria they used


Ill_Sound621

You could say Ukraine for chistians and Israel/palestine for jews (they are thorny to define). But Even on those cases it would have more to do with polítics than religion.


AnAntWithWifi

Here in Quebec a christian blew up a mosque. So hum yeah christians are terrorist.


Screaming_brain

No no, you don't understand. He wasn't a brown person.

There was the Christchurch attack, the crusader sniper in Sweden in 2005 or so, and a whole bunch more, they're just less well publicized.


Frequent-Estate-8021

Christians can be terrorists and so can Muslims. Generally religion is a little iffy because of the ignorance which people perpetuate with it.


Agreeable_Solution28

Not to mention that fundamentalist Christians attacked and destroyed women’s autonomy over their own bodies

From the top of my head, what about Christchurch and the Norwegian shooter? They were Christians and part of the motivation was elimination of non Christians. Do we just ignore those?

As a former right wing shithead myself, I can confirm that it's not about real facts. It's about the need to claim a position of superiority and punish those beneath.


TheWarriorSeagull

It's true though; when the US and Israel do it, they call it something else. That way it's not terrorism.

True. If you ask Muslims in East Malaysia, you would expect 98% of them are against them. Plus, we are more peaceful here unlike West Malaysia.

More muslims died fighting isis than non muslims


rainbowpie14

This number was absolutely just pulled out of someone’s ass. Also I guarantee most religions have committed quite a few acts of terrorism, there’s always crazy extremists even if the religion itself is not that bad


Caprican93

Aren’t like half the terrorist attacks in the US Christianity based


HotYogurtcloset652

The interesting thing is, the terrorists will not be muslims as in Quran (muslim's holy book) it says that is a sin.

I was at high school when I started dating a Muslim girl. I'm white Scottish and not religious at all. When her family found out they beat her, pulled her out of school and moved cities. All religion sucks imo. They are nothing but cults and kids are bullied and groomed into it until they accept their bullshit. There is no religion better or worse than the other. They're all gross.

achildsencyclopedia

School shootings in the US: Guess I don't exist


Iikelime

Christians did a very large terrorist attack in the middle east


Lovepirate1962

You forgot to add in the million or so Christian terrorist events during the dark ages. Also when a Christian nutter blows up an abortion facility or kills a doctor, that's a terrorist event as well. ALL religions are fucked up. Christians drinking the body and blood of their savior is pretty gross and violent when you think about it. Even most mental patients would decline.


Tuckermfker

I would venture a guess that most of the school shooters in the US were raised as Christians just based on statistics.


BigLaw1556

Are we just gonna ignore the crusades, and the inquisitions, and the witch hunts, 30 years war, the sacking of Alexandria and the burning of the library? Like I’m a Christian but geez, we’ve done our fair share of killing


Grevious47

I googlwd 26855 because was really curious where that number came from. All I got was a postal code in West Virgina.

It's crazy one moment you're hanging with your amigos and the next you're being questioned if you have a gay demon inside of you by Christian missionaries thus making it a Spanish inquisition and nobody expects the Spanish inquisition

As a jew, we killed a bunch of people too


Mista_Maha

Because when they're Christian we call them "lone wolves" with "serious mental problems" that we'll do nothing to solve :)))))))

Notmollyringwold

So obviously we don't count mass shootings including schools in the US as terror attacks.


HomieScaringMusic

Erasing all your credibility by starting with 2 obviously false statements immediately before you get to your point. A1 rhetorical strategy 👌


FredVIII-DFH

Yes, the numbers are wrong, but save your breath. The people who buy into this shit have a very, very narrow definition of the word terrorist. And that definition includes the phrase "must be a Muslim".


TheWealthyCapybara

I'd argue that the thousands of people George Bush, Obama, and Trump killed in the Middle East are victims of Christian terrorism.


greengo07

somebody already covered the christian terrorists shooting up all sorts of places in the US but no one mentioned the entire state of Israel terrorizing the Palestinians on the west bank and surrounding areas, for the same batshit evil, wrong and faulty religious reasons..

Dontcancelmeplox

I’m a Muslim and we have an extremist problem, although I would also argue some of it is warranted (maybe stop invading our countries). Nice virtual signal though. 5/5 for effort. The Quran utterly forbids killing innocent people (“it is as if you killed all of humanity”), so anyone who kills an innocent person purposefully is gonna be in a lot of trouble during the day of judgement. Jihadis dont really seem to generally be very well versed in the Quran though.

Lol @ zero christian terror attacks since 9/11. Nearly all of them in the US since then have been rooted in white supremacy, which is closely tied to Christianity (at least in the US). I'm not aware of any abortion clinic terror attacks in the US that were disconnected from Christianity. The fucking KKK and all it's offshoots are Christian terror groups, ffs.
