Welcome to Life in 361˚. This blog is an 'open journal' - a space where I keep notes on bits & pieces I come across day-to-day - including books and articles I've read that I feel are worth sharing, interesting pictures and photos (I'm a visual learner, you see), random musings - and anything else that happens to catch my eye or ear. It also acts as a kind of 'open experiment' in terms of developing my views and writing skills - and networking with other people of a like-mind.

If you've stumbled upon here randomly, then I suggest you check out my biography and other pages.

Please Note: This site, and the social networking profile pages connected with it, reflect my personal interests & views which do not necessarily represent those of organisations I am affiliated / associated with.

Christianityists

This blog post at Harry's Place makes a valid point that for Breivik, Christianity was little more than an 'identity marker' in his hate-filled political outlook rather than a faith he followed dutifully. The argument follows that he should therefore be described as a 'Christianityist' rather than a 'Christian.'

I guess analogies could also be drawn with the 7/7 bombers - maybe they should be routinely described as Islamists rather than devout Muslims?
