Remind me, which Muslim clergymen endorse ISIS blowing up cathedrals?
Oh, wait. None.
McVeigh indeed did not cite his Catholic 'core beliefs' (which he said
he still had) in explaining his and Nichols's and the Fortiers'
demolishing of the Murrah Federal Building. Instead, he called it
revenge for Waco and Ruby Ridge. However, if we're making a comparison
on those grounds, it would require interviewing the Cairo bomber to
ask what _his_ beef is. Maybe his issues are essentially geopolitical
like bin Laden's were. Or maybe just the usual case of too much
testosterone and too little thinking.
But the more important point is that attributing his viewpoint and
murderous intent to Musiims generally makes no more sense than
attributing McVeigh's viewpoint and murderous intent to every other
Midwestern caucasian loser.
But go ahead and keep being a loudmouthed idiot in public: I'll keep
mocking you. I can do this for years. I'm spoiled for material.
And, Ruben? For the love of God, learn to trim quoted material
you aren't commenting on. It's called a keyboard. Learn to use it.
