Is There a Christian Double Standard on Religious Violence?

Good article by Brandon Withrow: Is There a Christian Double Standard on Religious Violence?

Nearly 80 percent of Christians don’t think a terrorist acting in the name of Christianity is Christian. But more than half say terrorists acting in the name of Islam are Muslims.

The article does a good job exploring different perspectives on religion and violence using a mosaic of both Christian and Muslim voices. This is a debate with layers of complexity that will probably never end.
