Norwegian Atrocity ...

I have to admit that I find the use of the label "Christian" in relation to the latest act of lunatic murder, disturbing. Sadly it will be used by all those opposed to religion, and especially Christianity, to "prove" that all people of faith are dangerous lunatics capable of murder. As a committed Christian I have to say that these acts are not "Christian" - in fact they are the complete antithesis of the Gospel message. As a Christian I condemn them and I know that I am not alone in doing so.

This man planned his assault with care, and did so over a long period. This was not a spur of the moment thing and I do find it hard to accept that he did it alone. It's possible, of course, but it is also unlikely.

Sadly, the messages he has left on his website and on YouTube suggest that he has expressed in an extreme act, what a lot of people in Europe have begun to feel, though dare not express publicly. That our government's, with their encouraging immigration from lands whose cultural heritage is in compete opposition to our own, have created a situation in which the "natives" now feel threatened by the demands, for instance, of the Islamic radicals in the UK, for the immediate adoption of Sharia Law and Islamic Values. From the messages left by the Norwegian murderer, this appears to be the underlying reason for his actions. He caims he wanted to "save Norway from Islamism and communism."

The atrocity in Oslo on Friday leaves a whole lot of questions unanswered. Why, for instance, could the Police not find the means to get to the island where he was busy shooting young people, for so long? Why was he not detected as potentially dangerous at a much earlier stage? When and how did he plant his bombs - and more important, how did he trigger them to coincide with his shooting spree?

Of course we are seeing a lot of handwringing politicians denouncing "fundamentalism" and "racism" and so on. But the truth is that they have had ample warning of their having got a tiger by the tail with this. The "Multi-Culty" mantra is little more than a form of Apartheid with minorities being given "special status" not enjoyed by the national majority - and unsurprisingly, this has made people feel threatened. Will the politicians address these issues sensibly?

I very much doubt it. I suspect the reaction in parliaments across Europe will be to make more laws giving minorities protection and restricting even further the liberties of the majority.

In the meantime I mourn for those killed and pray for their families. In God I trust for mercy - in politicians for sense and honsety, not at all.
