Those that follow Christ’s example will not be a terror pet. That that follow Mohammed’s example will.
Throughout history Christians have probably killed more people than Muslims ever will.

Whoever made the silly suggestion that the mere fact of being a baptised christian gives a person some kind of immunity to the temptation to sin?

The point that Cassowary is trying to make is that christians who murder (against No. 5 of the Ten Commandments) do so against the teachings of their own creed whereas Muslims who put non-believers to death are acting in compliance with their's.

Portugal was a dictatorship from 1926 to 1974, not 1982. And the idea that we killed in that period 741,000 people is pure idiocy. So I suppose the rest of the figures can be disregarded as well...

Right wing, white supremacist, an arsenal of guns and explosives (in severely gun controlled countries), an Australian in New Zealand, attacking Muslims...

This will make for an interesting narrative.


so tragic, but what will happen next will be the travesty...
Newspaper Editors decide the NARRATIVE or message they want for the public. Their reporters pick up the facts to fit the narrative and ignore the others.

Stories that don’t fit are ignored completely.

Same principle applies to radio and television news.

This massacre within a small, remote country like this that the rest of the World normally ignores (even here NZ does not usually command much attention from our media) would impress news editors worldwide because of the sort of shock-horror effect that titillates consumers of news. That sort of stuff improves circulation, ratings and attracts advertising and other forms of revenue.

News and current affairs junkies like us resemble porn devotees in that both relish obscenity.

If it was a Muslim going into a church and killing people in NZ, it will only be a yawn. That's because NZ is so remote and also Muslims killing non-Muslims story is so common. Non-Muslims killing Muslims is like a man-bites-dog story. So its big news around the world.

That figure is for deaths outside of Portugal.
