I Don't Get it

Weren't we told over and over and over that Eric Rudolph, the abortion clinic bomber was a "religious fundamentalist"?

Somehow that doesn't square with this:

Eric Rudolph, who bombed the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, two abortion clinics and a gay nightclub, wrote to his mom about born-again Christians: : "They have been so nice I would hate to break it to them that I really prefer Nietzsche to the Bible." His letter was published by USA Today.

Now, I may be wrong, but doesn't it seem odd that a Christian "religious fanatic" would prefer books by a whacko 19th century German philosopher who proclaimed, "God is dead", over the Bible?

Which leads me to the funniest graffiti that I've ever seen on a Men's room wall:

"God is dead"
- Nietzsche
"Nietzsche is dead"
- God

And why blow up the Olympics? I don't remember the commandment that says, "Thou shalt not participate in boring sports events every four years".

Could it be that the Left has been lying to us for the past decade, and this guy was just a run-of-the-mill nutcase and not a "Christian terrorist" as we've been told ad nauseum?

They wouldn't do that, would they?

  1. Every nutcase has an "excuse." For this guy, it was abortion clinics, for Son of Sam it was the neighbors dog. He just wanted to blow stuff up and get on the news, like any good sociopath. He chose to blow up abortion clinics because they got him publicity in the early to mid 90s. They crave publicity. If he had really wanted to blow up abortion clinics, he would have continued to blow up abortion clinics, but as soon as a few convictions were obtained for crimes against abortionists, he switched targets.

    Nietzche was a total relativist. It doesn't jive with his beliefs--he would be of the mind of Biblical literalism (an eye for an eye). Not only is he not Christian, he's not even close to being representative. And last I checked, he never claimed to do it in the name of Chritianity.

    The left? Lie? That would be about as impossible as the left abandoning the ad hominem argument. Only that second one is really impossible.
