The Houston Abortion Clinic Bomber: Christian To The Nutz??

Paul Ross Evans has pleaded guilty to the attempted bombing of the Austin Women's Health Center, and more and more it appears as though he fits the profile of a religious (Christian) terrorist:

Evans, 27, who pleaded guilty Friday, had the name and address of Austin lawyer Sarah Weddington, who successfully argued for the decriminalization of abortion in the landmark Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court case.

He also had the names and addresses of a stem-cell researcher, a rabbi and a pornography production company, all in California.

[...]

A later search of Evans' apartment, according to the plea agreement, found the following books: "Pipe and Fire Bomb Designs," "Special Forces Demolition Techniques," "The Turner Diaries" and "The Pelican Brief."

"The Pelican Brief," a legal thriller by John Grisham, was marked on a page about a bombing, the plea agreement said.

"The Turner Diaries," a 1978 novel that tells in part about a militia blowing up federal buildings, was written by the founder of the National Alliance, a white supremacist organization.

Apparently, he also confessed to targeting Satanists, although there is nothing about this facet of the story in the MSM piece linked to above. In fact, it was a spike in traffic I got this morning from The League Of Independent Satanists that made me think something had happened in the case. (Google News Alerts...Phooey!!!)

Like sooooo what!!!!
How many "Athiests" are shootin up the streets of TO???
This guy, expressed as a percentage of the whole group would probably come last when compared to other religions groups.

eg: Athiests, Muzzies, Agnostics, Humanists, Satanists etc.

So other than your feeble attempt to paint all Christians with the same brush, your thought processes are simply very flawed.

What religion killed the most people in the 20th century? Why it was the "Athiests" in the Soviet Union and China.

You're almost as talented as "canadian cynic". By the way, that's not a compliment.

Somehow I get the feeling bigcitylib has been waiting a long time to publish an article with the words "Christian terrorist" in the headline.

oldschool,

You are an asshole and a hypocrite.
You take offence at bcl's obvious exhuberence in trying to link christianity to terrorism(I actually agree with you),but then proceed to slag all athiests in a similarly assinine manner.

If you want to call yourself a christian here,try conducting yourself as one.

Bigotted prick.

Atheism is not a religion. It is merely a lack of a belief in a god or gods. It contains no rules, hierarchy or claims of its own. Technically, religions such as Buddhism and Taoism are atheist because, though they have supernatural beliefs, they do not have a belief in a god or gods.

But why let a little thing like facts and truth get in the way of a hate-filled, spittle flecking rant, eh 'oldschool'?

And it is clear that BCL is pointing the irony of the absolute silence on this actual, professed act of terrorism from the right, when they happily spout about terrorism if it is a Muslim or other non-Christian that commits the crime. Though Evan's clearly committed a terrorist act, he was not charged or convicted of one, under any anti-terrorism legislation. Meanwhile innocent Mulsims are arrested, hassled and humiliated for taking pictures of the CN Tower or the NY Subway.

How is that hypocricy, anyway?

"What religion killed the most people in the 20th century?"

Well counting the Nazis (an yeah, they were Christians), the various coups, wars, disappearances by the US and their religious allies like Franco, Pinnochet, Samosa etc, or the child soldiers and rape victims of Kano Lords Army in Uganda or Bushes current Christian back crusade in the Middle East and Afghanistan, I'll be Christians would be up there.

But that is a silly and morbid way to keep score eh? Because as evil and horrid as the Commies were, they were motivated by a cracked ideology and cold blooded thirst for power, not their 'atheism'. Osama and Evans were motivated to commit their crimes by their religious beliefs.

Terrorism is not the exclusive purvue of Islam, no matter what slack-jawed bigots like you say. And Christianity is not the innocent victim either...it is just as culpable as Islam.

Wasn't a religion, it was an atheistic political system, communism.

"Terrorism is not the exclusive purvue of Islam."

No, but it sure is popular with them.

Yeah, atheists just take over the government so they can slaughter the citizens wholesale.

Much less messy.
