CNN’s Chris Cuomo points out Christians are killing in the name of their faith, ‘the Muslim thing matters’

While most of the media won’t point out that almost all of the world’s terrorism is perpetrated by Muslims in the name of their religion, Chris Cuomo on CNN’s morning news coverage discussed the San Bernardino shooting, pointing out the difference between Islam and Christianity.

Cuomo stated, “you don’t see Christians killing in the name of Christianity the way you do with Muslims right now, and it feeds a lot of the phobia” on Thursday.

Cuomo said, “the Muslim thing matters, too, it just does. Are all Muslims bad when Muslims do something bad? No. But at the same time, when you analogize it to, you know, a guy who might be a Christian and does something, you don’t see Christians killing in the name of Christianity the way you do with Muslims right now, and it feeds a lot of the phobia, and it’s something that requires discussion, and time, and context, and that’s in short supply when people are angry.”

ALISYN CAMEROTA: Boy, there’s so many things, Michaela, that make this tough to categorize into a neat box. A — multiple shooters: we haven’t seen that, obviously, since Columbine; husband and wife team; the fact that nobody describes him as an extremist or having muttered anything sort of extreme. The family is shocked. This is a very tough one for investigators.

MICHAELA PEREIRA: And the fact that the wound, Chris, is still open from Colorado Springs. The wound is still open from Paris. The wound is still open from seeing that reporter shot down on the air. I’ve heard from so many of my friends in southern California, enough is enough. When are we going to see this kind of thing stop? Again? That’s the refrain we’re hearing.

CHRIS CUOMO: Look — and the Muslim thing matters, too — just does. Are all Muslims bad when Muslims do something bad? No. But at the same time, when you analogize it to — you know, a guy who might be a Christian and does something, you don’t see Christians killing in the name of Christianity the way you do with Muslims right now; and it feeds a lot of the phobia; and it’s something that requires discussion and time and context. And that’s in short supply when people are angry.

PEREIRA: Yeah — sure does.
