When it's a religion other than Christianity at the core...it's terrorism. When it's Christianity it becomes mental illness.

Q: What is the difference between religious terrorism and mental illness? Consider

Nothing. Drinking Beverage

Agreed...but that's not the way the media spins it. Undecided

Rev was right. This is pretty much all you do.

So I guess you were a bit off. It was within two weeks, but:
KUSA's thread on Muslim Terrorists
You were worried about those deadly muslim refugees, when the threat was a white, christian guy from the good ol' USA.

I look forward to reading your posts regarding the white, christian terrorists armed with legally purchased assault rifles. Will you name them as a more dire threat than the refugees you fear so greatly?

I agree with Anjele that the media will probably end up focusing on mental illness. And over on Fox they will probably throw some no true scotsman into the mix... Here's an example from O'Reilly after the Breivik terror attacks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dl6lOP_BfLg

Based on the thread we had on religion and delusion: It depends.

Depends on what? This is terrorism and its motivation.

So he's reported as having said things, during his arrest, about "baby parts". What if that is true, and in fact the pro-life crazies and their fake *baby parts* videos fueled his rampage ? They will have to take some of the blame.

I agree that this is religiously motivated terrorism, but my point was just that religious terrorism is not necessarily connected with mental illness - let alone equal to mental illness.

Clinically you are likely correct. However, many at TTA forum equate religion with madness.

Indeed. It's no different than denying the existence of domestic terrorists. "He's a white American -- that was a rampage, not a terrorist attack."

If it were a Venn diagram, 'religious terrorism' would be a circle that overlapped with 'mental illness', but the two are not synonymous. Those with clinical depression are not necessarily terrorists, and not every radical believer who advocates political change through violence is suffering from a mental disorder; although you can argue that they all suffer from ignorance and the limits it imposes. Unless of course you want to reclassify 'ignorance' as a mental disorder, in which case the circle of 'terrorism' would fall entirely within the circle of 'mental illness', but even then it still would not be synonymous.
