Recently, three young people, who were also Muslims, were murdered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Their assailants describes himself as an atheist who hates religion. We don’t yet know if this was the motive for his unspeakable actions, but let’s get one thing clear: anyone who kills in the name of atheism must be roundly and unequivocally condemned. We expect religionists to condemn their extremists, so if this murderer committed his crime in the name of atheism, let us rebuke him in the strongest possible terms. And if he is guilty, let’s hope he goes to prison for the rest of his life.
