    What is the justification for attacking a minority religion during church services? I thought Islam was supposed to be tolerant of other religions.

    May the strength of the mightiest warriors of Asgard be with the families of the victims, who are now are enjoying the strongest mead known to mortals in the halls of Valhalla. Hail Odin!

    These people have no religion. Horrible terrorist crime that took place. Only a person with no faith or religion could such a horrible act of terrorism in a Church. May they rest in peace. Who ever did this had no heart, no brain or religion.

    You are stupid if you think that those are real peaceful Muslims.

    ISIS is to Islam what abortion clinic bombers are to Christians. Fringe characters.

    Islam is, but terrorists aren't genuine Muslims so it has little relevance.

    CORRUPTION of religion.

    Christianity is also guilty of killings and genocide (still happens on rare occasions) before enlightenment and tolerance. The Holocaust also has overtures of a Christian crusade, but was largely contrived movement.

    Much of the middle east have non-Islamic traditions they follow claiming it is in the Quran, similar to Christian traditions that are also not in the bible.

    History is full of murderous and just plain evil butchery in name of peaceful and positive religions.
    That is why we have secular government.

    I'd argue the terrorists are the real Muslims following in the footprints of their prophet while the majority has moderated the message.

    If abortion bombings were happening as much as Islamic ones the left would be falling over itself to blame Christianity.

    Even talking about not paying for abortions gets them all riled up.

    They do have a religion, it's their motivating force.

    Maybe you should take the time to study what the Quran actually says instead of believing extremists.

    We'd institute travel bans for the Bible Belt.

    No one would be allowed in or out.

    You have that backwards. All of ISIS is Islam. Not all of Islam is ISIS.

    So Christian terrorists are the only ones following the Bible? There is no such thing as a true religion as there is no such thing as a true translation or true understanding of that book.
