Very sad and I immediately thought of Thor.

I hope he and everyone he knows is safe.

Acts which hurt or kill innocent people, by any individual or group is never acceptable. I don't care if you are a religious group or an Athiest. Violence is never acceptable. Until we accept that no level of violence is acceptable, we will never know a world without it.

Thor is in Greece and he does not live in Oslo.

Btw. I don't think making fun of moslems or anything else is appropriate on a threat about terror attacks. Especially not with the second attack where young people were shot...

I was making fun of Mn Jim spelling it 'Mooslems'. Just FYI.

I find that unnecessary and just plain incorrect.

If a radical fundamentalist group was behind this, and it looks likely it was, saying generic 'Mooslems' were behind it is as incorrect as saying 'those gosh darm peaceful Christ lovers' were behind the Oklahoma City bombing.

Riss, I didn't see the second 'o' but still I don't think a serious thread like this is a place to make fun. So, let's just agree that we disagree....

With all due respect, Andrea, we are on the same side, here. It was not a joke, but a jab at his whitewashing and calling the perpetrators 'MOOSlems' before it was even announced they know who is behind it for sure.

Sorry, but I will call out inaccuracies as I see fit.

Fer cryin' out loud, do you two seriously not see what she was doing?

EDIT: she's, quite clearly, pointing out the ethnic slur that was in the OP.

You get your undies in a bunch over that, but completely overlook the original slur?!
