These guys are NOT christians. We established that last month. You surely didn't pay enough attention to the thread.

Just your general posting of the thread in the first place in order to condemn Christians across the board.

Define "plenty" for me, please? What number would you say that is?
Could it be... .0005% of Christians? That's roughly 10,500 nuts... if we estimate 2.1 billion christians on the planet.

My posting of the thread was not to condemn Christians....not going to restate that again.

Plenty is enough that stories come up every so often. My view is that the ratio of normal people to nutjobs is no different for Christians than it is for any other group of people.

I think it's because it's what he believes in, and he is taking it personally when he feels that belief is being attacked. I think it signifies how close Jsanders feels he is to God.

Oh. Maybe not:

I do know this: So far this year in the US, there have been more people killed by a nutjob PhD in higher education than there have been by religious fundamentalist terrorists.

How's that for statistics?

Your right, even the ultra educated are not immune to homicidal tendencies.

From what I read she has been a loony for a while.

No group has a monopoly on intelligence or stupidity. They seem to be spread out rather evenly.

Oh, I agree, but it only seems to fascinate the OP here if the perpetrators attach the word "christian" to themselves.

I'm also glad you're back. Even though you were pounced upon, don't hold back test.
