The NY TIMES still hasn't mentioned who the perp was, at leastxwhen I last checked. I can just imagine Dean Baquet calling an editorial meeting to figure out how to "handle" the the double-whammy of a hate filled perp being not only NOT being a white supremacist, but a follower of one of the world's best-known rabid anti semites. Farrakhan once called Judaism a "gutter religion". Farrakhan is partly responsible for the very deep antisemitism that runs through a large swath of the black community.

Easter weekend seems to hold some added fascination for Jihadis targeting Christians. You would think it would be Christmas since that is the more famous holiday, but in fact Easter is a lot more important theologically (because it involves the resurrection) and so jihadis particularly love to attack over Easter.

He grew up in Covington, VA. Was a star athlete in HS and college:

The man responsible for the death of Capitol Police officer William “Billy” Evans in Washington, D.C. on Friday has ties to Southwest Virginia.

10 News has learned that Noah Green, 25, was from Covington, graduated from Alleghany High School in 2014 and later played football at Christopher Newport University, in Newport News.

He graduated from CNU in the spring of 2019 with a degree in finance.

While in high school in addition to playing football, he also ran track.

On the football field, he played both running back and defensive back, earning All-District, All-Conference, and team MVP honors in 2013, according to his biography on CNU’s website.

On the track, he also earned All-District and All-Conference honors in two events.

I just checked the NY TIMES again. It goves6the prep's name, age, background, and admits the info about Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, and identifies the group as having been on the SPLC'sist as a horrifically anti-gay, antisemitic, racist organisation. But not ONCE in the two articles I opened does it identify the perp as "Black" or remotely suggest that HE might also antisemitic or antigay or racist - only that the group he was flowing was. And, of course, no photo.

If the perp had been a White supremacist, you can imagine the plentiful mentions of race, hate, and bigotry.

This is why I refuse to pay to support most of the mainstream media. The TIMES is the poster illustration of how to manipulate facts to suit a political agenda.

Certain demographics are definitely targeted by bigotry and colonialism, R193, but that doesn't "make" many of them mentally ill. What we're seeing is a wholesale, across-all-demographics rise in cults and extremist groups.

The media never wants to deal with this kind of thing. That's partly why the story of the kid being a jackass to the Native protesters in DC turned weird; once people realized a group of Black Hebrew Israelites were in the mix, everyone got freaked out and confused. No one knows how to deal with mental illness or cults or extremists, unless it's a plain, everyday, stereotypical terrorist.

Protestants also do not accept transubstantiation - the Body and Blood referenced at Communion are symbolic, not actual. They revere Mary, but do not worship her. And, of course, with the Reformation they rejected the Apostolic succession.

We forget today that in prior eras, Roman Catholicism was considered by some parts of Protestantism to be akin to superstition on a level with devil worship.

I have always remembered an exchange between Lady Jane Grey and her husband, Lord Guildford Dudley, in the film about Grey's ill-starred nine days on the throne. Dudley, like Grey, was raised in a Protestant, humanist household, but in the film he and Grey are having a religious argument about interpreting the Bible. Lady Jane reminds Dudley of the phrase in the bible describing Christ as the door through which all must go to reach God.

'Is our Lord a door?" Lady Jane asks Dudley acidly?

R240, the violence in the Old Testament is historical, the violence in the islamic foundational texts is directive. Nowhere in the New Testament does God say kill, steal, rape, enslave, lie, or commit genocide. The islamic god orders and sanctifies all of these behaviors. Jesus never owned a slave, never committed mass murder, never raped a child, never stole....mohammade did all of these and muslims are quite proud of him and his him.

There is a reason why the islamic world is silent when there are islamic terrorsit attacks, muslims know it is jihad and it is ordered and sanctified by their islamic god.
