No even close to what I'm saying.
Sorry dawg, i was just joking. but really, a lot of people i talk to on the internet just happen to be atheist so... this joke was funny to me.

There are murderers who HAPPEN to also be "Christian."
There are extremists who HAPPEN to be "Muslim."
There are people who are rapists who HAPPEN to watch anime.
There are violent teens who HAPPEN to play video games.
The list goes on, and on, and on. The fact is there are good and bad people in every walk of life. Its just a matter of society's current opinions on something and how the media spins things with how that "badness" gets blamed. Saying a person is just unstable is not as satisfying (for the masses) than placing the blame on a whole religion or way of life. By doing that people can categorize things, what makes us comfortable as humans...
I believe most religions say the same thing - Be a good person, don't do things that hurt others, act nicely, etc. I think the fact is people take things way too literally sometimes, or they read into it in a way that can support their destructive tendency that already exists outside of the religion.
