Fort Hood

The wake of yesterday’s shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, some on the Christian religious right have taken the opportunity to use the assailant’s Islamic faith as an excuse to whitewash all Muslims as violent extremists.

However, aside from any faith (including Christianity) being vulnerable to corruption, such ideas are straight out of the tail-wagging-the-dog school of logic as ultimately people are responsible for their own actions just as US Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was yesterday with horrific results.
