Shouldn't Christians Ever Have To Answer for Anything?
When Timothy McVeigh bombed the Oklahoma City building, there was no racial profiling of white guys nor was there any call on white people to explain themselves and say "He's just a 'bad white.'" It was taken for granted that Tim could be an individual just like the rest of us.
But when it's another community, Muslims have to explain what "they're" doing. No, "they" aren't doing anything: some people who loosely identify themselves similarly in religious and ethnic terms are doing things. Individuals just like anyone else.
Given the support among fundamentalist rightist conservatives for bombing innocent people abroad and prosecuting terror upon them, why isn't any Christian forced to stand up and say "Most of us are peace-loving people?"
