Norway terrorist attack

My thoughts and prayers go out to the country of Norway and the victims of yesterday's terrorist attacks. Apparently the terrorist is a right wing fundamentalist by the name of Anders Behring Breivik.

As a Christian (United Methodist) I'm offended by this guy. There is no place for fundamentalism in this world. The bible was meant for interpretation and is full of metaphors, not to be taken literally. Like where Jonah was swallowed by a whale. It is scientifically impossible for that to happen. He could have been chewed up by a whale. And the bible does not specify what kind of whale it was either. It could have been a shark.

People like Anders Behring Breivik give Christianity a bad name, like Osama Bin Laden gives Islam a bad name.
