Can Christians be considered "terrorists"?
This is in light of the question asked by Yahoo Devil "Why do most of you link ISLAM with TERRORISM" Since G. W. Bush (he's a Christian) invaded Iraq knowing full well there was no connection with 9/11 and is responsible for the deaths of both troops and civilians alike (G-d bless them all), does that make the Christians terrorists since it is mostly Christians who support this war?

I asked this question not to attack anyone's faith (I really shouldn't have to justify myself but I will anyway). I want to see how many people realize that one man's terrorist is another man's hero. America is perceived as an emeny and a threat because of the OPERATION-it's not a war (Congress never actually declared war). The American people come from many different faiths and I believe that we have allowed this "Islamic Extremist" mentality divide this country. So I challenge everyone who answers this question to try to see things through the eyes of the American and Iraqi people alike who have lost.

I guess we could be considered terrorists to the average Iraqi living in Iraq. But more than anything, they probabaly see us as inept and are dumbfounded at what has happened to their country since the invasion. Instead of the secular society they had under Saddam, the country is divided by sect... More

Not all of them. There are many perfectly happy and reasonable Christians out there. But reasonable Christians don't support the war.

No. And that's an example of an absurdity we reach when we draw a conclusion, then try desperately to support it.

Thanks for paying attention to my question. Yes there are christian terrorist but not many. Remember the dude who bombed a building in... forgot where. There was a child care center inside and many innocent children died. Maybe Bush supporters can be considered as terrorist but indirect terrorists.

A person of any religion can be. There are good and bad people, saints (or their equivalent) and terrorists in every religion and outside of religions as well.

Most definitely! During the Centuries 10th, 11th and 12th, Christians were the main and most dangerous terrorists in the whole world. Terrorists today don't kill half as many as they did then.

This is the most stupid question I've ever seen. I'm Agnostic and disagree with the Iraq war but the way your mind works is scary. You have a personal vendetta with Christianity and you're trying to incite controversy here. Very low of you.

There is a legal definition for terrorism or a terrorist. For the most part, it is agreed upon that it is it is violence against civilians to achieve political or ideological objectives by creating fear. As much as you would like to say it is, Bush's actions do not fall under the definition of terrorism.
Answered By: Josephine - 5/24/2008
On the contrary, I'm a Christian and not a terrorist. (well, my kids would say different because I'm always terrorism them. lol) However, I do totally agree about your views on the "WAR".
