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!).
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.)
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.
