Limbaugh Groupie Steyn: a real Christian is dumb as a box of rocks

You may have noticed the Christian right – through its outraged punditocracy on talk radio and FOX –  getting their sacred underwear all knotted up again because the secular ‘mainstream media’ said Anders Breivik, the Norwegian mass murderer, is a Christian (gasp!).

Bill sets us straight

O’Reilly, for instance, said there is “absolutely no evidence that this guy is any kind of Christian”.

(Because neither Breivik’s 1500 page manifesto calling for a new Christian Crusade nor his video full of Christian imagery count as actual evidence.)

So here comes right-wing media luminary Mark Steyn on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, taking his turn to make the case. How does he know? He has irrefutable evidence.

This guy isn’t a serious Christian. He’s a devoted New York Times reader, and he’s an extremely well-read guy . . .

Breivik is well read! He can’t be our kind of Christian.

(h/t Andrew Sullivan)

  1. The right-wingers cant see the forest from the trees. They should all crawl back into their rabbit holes and stay there.

  2. Ahahahaha…. Steyn is British, that’s why he has this opinion. The reason he said this is because in Europe, regardless of whether you’re on the liberal or conservative side, being very religious is seen as equivalent to being ignorant and not very well read. Wonder if the American conservatives who admire Steyn realize that this is how he thinks? Hee hee.

  3. If you say you are christian, recite the creed and are baptized, you are a christian. It’s that simple!

    • Not to our right wing Chrsitians! There is apparently a test . . . look how the political Christians keep trying to delegitimize the traditional Protestant churches because they express some liberal values.
