Dear god, 6+ billion on the planet and 18 people died. Cool story.
Dear God, 18 people who live in a civilized 1st world country that didn't have to die were cut down with no mercy.
Whatever, there's 7+ billion people that can take their place because human lives have no value.
You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named 'Bush', 'Dick', and 'Colon'.

The difference between a Muslim extremist committing an act of terrorism and this guy, is that the Muslim extremist will take responsibility for the act and will admit that he is committing an act of Jihad against whoever the target is often in video recordings preceding the events, and this guy shooting in the Sikh Temple does not imply that he is, in fact, a Christian.
That's the point of this thread. To bring out the double standard. When ever a muslim commits a crime, it's explicitly mentioned in the title and article.
thats cuz islamic terrorism is specifically religiously motivated, more so than other types of terrorism, such as nationalist or environmental terror campaigns. the dude in oak creek was incidentally christian (like 99% christian area), which probably had some to do with his motives, but contextually had less importance to his crime than in islamic terror incidences.
