Their bold attack turned the Maute siblings, who are in their mid-30s, into the most infamous high school alumni of the Protestant Church-run institution, which had been a symbol of religious tolerance in the mostly Muslim city of 200,000 people.

It seems apparent that this Xian missionary school, doing Christ's work was seen much differently by some of those who benefited from the education it offered. My guess is they didn't like having to go to the Xian school and we know that there was proselytizing involved no matter whether it was subtle or overt.

And this is why they grew up to despise proselytizing and forced conversion, and vowed to fight it in all of its many forms.  LOL.

So do you also find residential schools a big joke?

Not at all.

I just think it's funny that someone who resented prosyletizing and forced conversion would end up standing arm-in-arm with ISIS.  Because ISIS is all about freedom and tolerance!  They'll help the Mautes put an end to religious oppression!!

I think it is within the norm of behaviour of people who have survived abuse but thats merely an opinion. Abuse causes many reactions and so does heavy indoctrination by people you have come to believe in.  I personally have a hard time imagining a Xian school that does not include the real possibility of abuse occurring especially if it is run by people who are not from the community that the children are from. If one explores their roots and the journey leads to a radical jihadist mentor burning down a symbol from your hometown makes sense.
