But how much of a Christian was Mr. Breivik, really?
The following video takes a look at the killer’s manifesto and discovers a few important facts about Mr. Breivik’s religiosity (or lack thereof):
- He did not believe in God, but rather “science”.
- He did not follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.
- He believed that it was important that Christianity have no say in political affairs — in other words, not a hint of “theocracy”.
- He styled himself as a “cultural Christian”. That is, he recognized that Christianity had been an important part of European civilization in the past, and thought its traditions and rituals should continue to be observed, to some extent.
- He was a pragmatist about Christianity — he felt it could be useful in establishing cultural unity among Europeans.
Hmm. Some Christian…
But the mainstream media decline to be confused by the facts. They wanted a “Christian” terrorist, and as far as they’ve concerned, they’ve got one. That’s their story, and they’re sticking to it.
