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.
