Attributing Acts of Terror to Religion

Earlier I described the man accused in the Norway massacre as "Christian terrorist Anders Breivik". I did this not because I think Christianity was responsible for the action of this mad man, but to point out the absurdity of those on the right insisting that any terrorist who is also a Muslim be labeled a Muslim terrorist. I'm sure for many my intentions were not clear.

Anyway, The Daily Show takes on this issue this week very clearly making the point I failed to make.
