What's my opinion on this? If anything, this should be a wake-up call to anybody who thinks that only Muslim extremists are terrorists and have been ignoring the Christian ones. And instead of complaining about how Anders Breivik isn't a "real Christian" and making up conspiracy theories about him (i.e. calling him a Freemason), Christians should be facing up to the fact that they've got bad apples in their tree, too. Using the No True Scotsman fallacy over and over again isn't going to make those bad apples go away. Own up to the fact that they exist and go after them.

If anybody among us atheists does something stupid, we don't go "Oh, he's not a 'real atheist'..." We make sure he knows that his actions or words are stupid and that his behavior is unacceptable.
