We may see this happening more often with Islam, but it can happen just as easily with Christianity - even in America. A recent example involves Scott A. Woodring, a man linked to Christian Identity who shot and killed a state trooper in Michigan:
"My husband and I are hoping (Scott A. Woodring) never gets caught. We certainly wouldn't turn him in," Marta Yeakey told reporter Amy Lee. Woodring, she said, was "an awesome, outspoken Christian person."
When believers make excuses for or simply accept the horrible actions of other believers like this, they only undermine any possible respect others might be able to have for that religion. If their faith can be used as a defense for violence and murder, then it isn't a faith that is moral to uphold and follow.
