Here's Something the MSM Never Told You About Abortion Clinic Bomber Eric Rudolph

Abortion clinic bomber Eric Rudolph is an evangelical, Born-Again, Right-Wing Christian, right? If that's what you think, it's almost certainly because that's what the MSM and some parts of the Online New Media have been telling us for years. There's just one problem with it - IT AIN'T TRUE!

Finally, after all these years since Rudolph exploded a bomb at Atlanta's Olympic Park and blew up an Alabama clinic, the five years Rudolph managed to avoid capture despite a massive manhunt involving local, state and federal authorities, and finally his recent trial and sentencing, somebody in the MSM has reported actual evidence from the man's own hand of his spiritual inspirations.

It wouldn't surprise me, though, if CNN didn't even realize it was putting the lie to years of inaccurate reporting when it reported July 5 on some letters between Rudolph and his mother. Credit goes to Stones Cry Out's Rick Brady for noticing Rudloph's explicit rejection of the Bible:

"In another he refers to people who send him money and books. 'Most of them have, of course, an agenda; mostly born-again Christians looking to save my soul. I suppose the assumption is made that because I'm in here I must be a 'sinner' in need of salvation, and they would be glad to sell me a ticket to heaven, hawking this salvation like peanuts at a ballgame,' he wrote.
"'I do appreciate their charity, but I could really do without the condescension. They have been so nice I would hate to break it to them that I really prefer Nietzsche to the Bible.'"

Don't hold your breath waiting for corrections.
