Christian Terrorists

God is For Suckers has a great post about the unwillingness of the media to use the term "Christian terrorist" to describe individuals who clearly deserve such a label. Check it out here.

Readers of my last few posts may have noticed that I have been using the phrase "Christian extremist" in place of "conservative Christian" or "evangelical Christian." I believe that the term "extremist" is a much more descriptive of these individuals. Like "terrorist," it is fascinating how the media readily applies "extremist" to Muslims but not Christians.
