Perhaps if you weren't worried about people "misconstruing" your words, as you see it, you shouldn't try to say things trying to blame the victim of an attack or imply that they "deserve" it or "knew" something would happen. That is making excuses, so despite your statement that you do not condone it, you still enter in excuses for it, which is contradictory.

To be honest, this is tedious. Either engage, or don’t. But these halfhearted attempts at trying to convince me that I’m supporting unjustified violence simply because I choose to present a balanced view on the issue is really of no consequence at all. Especially if the entire basis of your argument is simply because it disagrees with the atheist way of viewing it. So much for freedom of expression.
