Comment of the Week

The story:

Police arrested Juanita Gomez, 49, of Oklahoma City on charges of killing her daughter, Geneva, whose body was found by authorities stretched out on the floor with a large crucifix resting on her chest. "Blood was visible, and she had suffered severe trauma around her head and face," said court documents filed on Monday, according to Tribune Media. After placing the body in a cross position, the court document show, Juanita cleaned her daughter's dead body. Her mother told investigators that she believed her daughter, 33, who was living with her, had demons inside.

The comment, from Mary-Anne Wolf:

Does it seem reasonable to ask all Christians to distance themselves from this religiously motivated action? Could we argue based on this crime that Christianity is not a peaceful religion? Or is it only Islamic people who are held responsible for actions by a minority of those who claim to follow their faith?
