Paris And Colorado Both Religious Terrorism

A shooting at a family planning clinic in Colorado Springs has left three dead and nine injured.
The clinic, part of the Planned Parenthood group which is the largest single provider of abortion in the US, has been the scene of anti-abortion protests previously by Christian groups and although the motive is unclear, Police suspect this was an attack by an anti-abortionist.
It hasn't been said if the attacker was driven by religious intolerance to abortions but two weeks ago in Paris we saw 192 people killed by people driven by religion and if this turns out to be the act of a madman who saw abortion as against his religious beliefs, then apart from the number now dead, what's the difference?
If Muslims killing people in the name of their God is terrorism, then someone killing people in America in the name of their God is also terrorism.
If Muslims are browbeaten into making an apology because of what a handful of men and women did in Paris then Christians or whatever religion this crackpot did this in the name of should also be forthcoming with apologies, shun the perpetrator and explain how their religion is one of peace.
Paris and Colorado are two sides of the same coin, deaths of innocent people because some fruitcake religious nut who decided they should act in their Gods name.

OK. I apologize that a nut killed some people that kill unborn humans. You give me shit for killing fish, but don't give any shit to doctors that kill unborn humans.

anyway, the New Testament does not have any scripture that supports murder.

My understanding is that people of the Muslim faith do have scripture that supports killing... No?

Further, the killer in Colorado didn't kill random people in a distant city because someone was killing babies in an abortion clinic. He went to the abortion clinic to kill the people that kill the babies... No?

Protocol seems to be that the next step is to now find the Church and religious leader which radicalised the whackjob and close it down so he can't spread his poison to other followers of that particular faith.

Was he encouraged by a religious leader? How do you conclude this?

Going on how previous religious terrorists have been dealt with.
