July 23 Update: According to many news reports, the bomber/shooter is not a muslim. Accusations of “extreme right-wing Christian fundamentalism” abound. Color me skeptical. Extreme? Yup. Right-wing? Maybe, but we’ll see. Christian? No way.
Anyone who behaves as this man did is not following the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. The killer may think he’s a Christian, but no rational reading of Jesus’ teachings would lead to that conclusion. A person can sincerely think he’s a kumquat, too.
