    someone who expresses religious/ethnic/racisl bias, prejudice, bigotry, is a bigot.

    I'm sorry if this simple truth bothers you.

    God forbid we take a nuanced view of this. The man killed 76 people, so he's going to have some strange views. He appears to have been religious, but his violence was more based on culture than some Christian Jihad.

    Before anyone attacks me for being "Islamophobic," I know of many examples of modern, non-Muslim, religious extremists.

    Can you help me with this? It seems Breivik will eternally be deemed a Christian to further their pro-Islam.stance...
    what is "pro-Islamic" about labeling Breivik a Christian?

    I am not a Muslim nor do I promote Islam, and yet I consider this guy to be a Christian.

    it appears that some folks here believe that the only religious group that can be labeled terrorists or extremists, are Muslims.

    No, they are just saying Breivik isn't a christian, because he says that he is not a religous christian, but he believes in the social values of Christianity. He did his confirmation when he was 15, but everyone does that regardless if they believe or not.

    I think few people would say that National Liberation Front of Tripura is not christian. That's a real Christian terrorist group. Don't forget that if Breivik converted to Islam. Liberals would say that he's not muslim.

    Breivik considers himself to be a Christian.

    A Christian is someone who believes that Jesus Christ was the song of God, Messiah, and died for the sins of mankind.

    Therefore, only a mind-reader can know for sure whether or not he is a "true" Christian.

    Re: Is Anders Breivik an Atheist or a Christian?

    From what I've read, Breivik stated he wasn't a religious Christian, but a cultural Christian. He also said he wasn't very religious, in general, and was proud of his Norse, Odinist heritage, e.g., heathen.

    Therefore, I've concluded he was morally confused, and dangerously obsessed with counter-jihad ideology. Personally, I identify with that latter, but not at the expense of fundamental, Christian observance. Granted, in the future struggle, some compromises might have to be made for strategic and tactical expediency, but not in radical violation of Christian Just War doctrine.

    I'm currently searching for his own words, and I could really use your help with this. If it is so cut-and-dry, then let's put this issue to bed.
    I voted {please explain} for I do not understand this poll.

    What does it matter what any person believes or does not believe , it is the deeds or choices he makes that truly matter.

    For all humans have made good choices and bad, thus had good deeds and bad.
