MEMO TO MSM: Get it Right and Stop Referring to Eric Rudolph as a 'Christian'

Confessed Atlanta Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph is being called a "Christian" in the MSM largely as a result of ignorance. Rudolph is connected to the outfit that calls itself "Christian Identity." These folks believe the lost tribes of Israel went to Britain and were preached to by Christ, who vacationed on the island during those adolescent years that are not described in the New Testament. Ergo: the only people going to heaven are whites descended from the lost tribles in Britain.

Of this, Doubletoothpicks observes:
"'Christian Identity' makes a mockery of the best-known verse in the New Testament, John 3:16: 'For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.'
"It dismisses Revelation 5:9's description of Christ: 'For Thou wast slain, and didst purchase for God with Thy blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.'
"Christian Identity, in short, denies Christ and His mission.
"Eric Rudolph is a member of an anti-Christian group with 'Christian' in its name."

So when is the MSM going to get this right?
