More Media Bias: the Oslo Killer

As near as I can make out, the media's efforts to associate the Oslo killer with right-wing Christians started with news stories that the killer wrote on right wing Christian email discussion lists. That seems to be the only item I've seen so far that could be used by a biased media to smear Christians.

In any event, the man is a product of living in a secular society.


As the name Timothy McVeigh has been coming up again, note that McVeigh was not a Christian. He had been raised Catholic, but he renounced Catholicism and became an agnostic. He went on the record as saying that "Science is my religion." Like the Oslo killer, McVeigh was also a product of a modern secular mindset.

nope! you're wrong! the oslo killer professes to be a christian. like most other christians he hates all others that are not like him. It is a fatal flaw of all christians. The buddhist way is to love all and chant for them

Professing to be Christian makes you no more a Christian than standing in a garage makes you a car.
I'm sure if I could be bothered researching it, I could find a few shaddy buddist characters too.
There is good and bad in all, though there is only one Truth and one true Faith and that is the Faith of the Catholic Church which was instituted by Christ Himself.
