On Friday night’s episode of Real Time, Bill Maher compared the media treatment received by Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, who was arrested this week on charges that he plotted to attack Ft. Hood, and Anders Breivik, the Norwegian allegedly responsible for the July 22 massacre at a children’s camp.
Maher said, “I’m sure the media would have no trouble calling the guy at Ft. Hood a Muslim terrorist, but they refuse to call Anders Breivik a Christian terrorist. But that’s what he was. He is a Christian terrorist. He wanted to start a Christian onslaught against the Muslims. And it reminds me that this is not a problem with the Muslim religion — it’s a problem with religion. And Christianity is perfectly capable of coming out of its dormant phase and once again becoming the violent, blood-lusty religion it was under the Crusades.”
