How to think about Christian terrorism

We now know that the suspect in the Poway synagogue attack is Presbyterian. His pastor and his family have condemned the shootings, and certainly, his fellow congregants are horrified at what authorities say the young man who worshipped with them has just done.
.....
Thanks to the privilege Christianity has in our culture, Presbyterians (and Christians in general) will have an advantage that Muslim Americans don’t get when a shooter is Muslim. Most of us will take seriously the fact that this terrorist is not representative of Christians in general.

This editorial goes on to talk about the beliefs of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and how they may have played into this shooting.

“We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people." -- John F. Kennedy
