Norway and the Scapegoating of “Right-wing Christians UPDATED”

With great haste, the “Mainstream” News Media and others of the Left have sought to pin the Norway massacre on “Right-wingers” and Christians and especially “Right-wing Christians.”

Yet the killer’s own words make it clear he is no Christian:

“If you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and God then you are a religious Christian. Myself and many more like me do not necessarily have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and God. We do however believe in Christianity as a cultural, social, identity and moral platform. This makes us Christian.”

Uh, huh. Sorry. He is no more a Christian than a lover of English cathedrals is a Medieval Catholic. Or than someone who thinks Jesus was “a good teacher” is a Christian.

Not to mention that his lifestyle was hardly that of a Christian, much less a fundamentalist one, complete with prostitutes.

But the facts do not get in the way of those engaging in the demonization of Christians and in the demonisation of the Right. Even so-called Christians like Susan Brooks Thislethwaite (Yes. Her again.) join in piling on as she pompously lectures, “Christians should . . . try to come to terms with the temptations to violence in the theologies of right-wing Christianity.”

Yup. “Right-wing Christianity” is to blame.

I was disheartened to hear that even some conservative Christian leaders were calling mass murderer, A. Breivik a 'Christian Terrorist'. Why the Political Correctness? [How very strange.] The facts are still being unveiled, but I immediately saw that Breivik perhaps was a 'Dan Brown, Di Vinci Code type Christian'. In-authentic.
