It's human nature, but we seek answers to things that we do not understand. and sometimes our fears fester until our anger boils over. What makes us human is that we can choose to control these emotions. We can choose to be better than pure, reactionary instinct. Why do I bring this up? It's because of what I've seen and heard in the wake of the Fort Hood shooting. People who I otherwise respect and listen to feel it is important to point out that the shooter was a Muslim. Islam is an evil religion they say but they ignore that many other people who have done bad things are non-Muslims. Yes, the shooting was a horrific crime, but Timothy McVeigh was a Catholic altar boy. Serial killers Ed Gein, Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy were Lutherans. Should we jump to the conclusion that since all were Christian, that Christianity is an evil religion? Rather than grab a torch and join the lynch mob, let's remember that cruelty has no faith and ignorance imparts no wisdom.
