Terrorist proclaimed himself 'Darwinian,' not 'Christian' Norwegian's manifesto shows Breivik not religious, having no personal faith
WASHINGTON A review of Anders Behring Breivik's 1,500-page manifesto shows the media's quick characterization of the Norwegian terrorist as a "Christian" may be as incorrect as it was to call Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh one.
Breivik was arrested over the weekend, charged with a pair of brutal attacks in and near Oslo, Norway, including a bombing in the capital city that killed 7 and a shooting spree at a youth political retreat on the island of Utoya that killed more than 80 victims.
Piecing together Breivik's various posts on the Internet, many media reports have characterized the terrorist who says he was upset over the multiculturalist policies stemming from Norway's Labour Party as a "right-wing, Christian fundamentalist."
Yet, while McVeigh rejected God altogether, Breivik writes in his manifesto that he is not religious, has doubts about God's existence, does not pray, but does assert the primacy of Europe's "Christian culture" as well as his own pagan Nordic culture.
Breivik instead hails Charles Darwin, whose evolutionary theories stand in contrast to the claims of the Bible, and affirms: "As for the Church and science, it is essential that science takes an undisputed precedence over biblical teachings. Europe has always been the cradle of science, and it must always continue to be that way. Regarding my personal relationship with God, I guess I'm not an excessively religious man. I am first and foremost a man of logic. However, I am a supporter of a monocultural Christian Europe."
The terrorist also candidly admits he finds no support within either the Catholic or Protestant churches for his violent ideas.

Doesn’t matter. Media spin is for media consumers. Facts don’t matter.
I’ll bet that doens’t get much publicity.
He’s a nutcase. That’s all anyone needs to know.
Hanging labels on him (or any other killer) is ridiculous.
What we have here my friends, is the 21st centurys version of Reichskristallnacht.
This is a classic maneuver of the left. So it was with Germanys National SOCIALISTS, and so it is with the modern day Soros Socialists/Marxists. George was alive at the time, and probably thought it was a really grand idea. Well, just how splendid!
hopefully hannity will set this straight tomorrow.
Hhmmm....”christian” with a small “c” - puts his faith in science, not God...has no relationship to God or Christ. Not much different than most in America.
Hmmm. Reminds me of someone...
And I’m sure the NYSlimes will be the first to print a retraction.
Or perhaps someone credible.
By the way, you write like a child.
Capitalization is your pal. It makes you look like a grown up.
So he was pro-Gay pro-Israel pro-Darwin
he was Joe Lieberman.
The media have their meme and the truth won’t matter. We will still have this “Christian terrorist” thrown at us in a decade or two.
I have read quite a bit about this guy since the terroristic action, I find nothing to support the decription, “Christian fundalmentalist.” What am I missing?
Thanks for sharing, although this is probably the first and last we’ll ever hear of it.
Wow! That's a shocker! /sarc
Something I'm sure the drive-by's find incomprehensible.
I appreciate your posting this summary of this murderer’s non-allegiance to God, to Christ, or to Christianity as anything other than a theoretical cultural/ethnic bloc.
>>Hanging labels on him (or any other killer) is ridiculous.<<
When the MSM was reporting him as a “Christian Fundamentalist” (instead of the proper “complete whacko who settled on Christianity to use as a vehicle for his insanity”) I said “Here we go...”
This is now “here we go” 2.0
We should deal with these “people” like the denizens of H. Beam Piper’s “Fuzzy” series did with theirs.
