Equipped: Are Christians Responsible for the Orlando Shootings?

Oh the insanity...

Sunday morning we woke up to news of a mass shooting in an Orlando, Florida nightclub leaving 50+ dead. As we learned more throughout the day, it looked more and more like a radicalized Islamic man targeting a homosexual nightclub. 

Today I woke up to see an article headlined "ACLU lawyers blame 'Christian right,' GOP for Orlando terrorist attack" For real? Yes, for real. Chase Strangio hailing from ACLU responded to people's heartfelt condolences by tweeting:

This type of thing infuriates me personally. This past week, Justin made reference to a particular kind of injustice that infuriates him, the kind where the good guy is perceived to be the bad guy and is treated as such. But that's the story of the Gospel isn't it? Sorry. Rabbit trail. That's just to say that's where I feel Christians are this morning. Yet another thing that's our fault that actually has nothing to do with us. Yay.

I don't have much to say this morning. It's early, and I'm out of coffee which means there will be no waxing eloquent on my part at this point. However, I do want to equip my fellow MDers with some responses to attacks against Christianity in this vein of insanity.

Is the Bible a Book of Violence?

The following video is a debate between Christian apologist David Wood and Islamic apologist Shabir Ally. David beautifully defends the Bible (and therefore biblical Christianity) from some heartfelt attacks against its character. Please take some time to listen to it this week, and share  your thoughts in the comments below.
