“Right-wing fundamentalist Christian.”

Flash: the Norway terrorist reportedly is a “right-wing fundamentalist Christian.”
That and about $2.50 will get you a Venti Verona at Starbucks at this early stage of the game.

The New York Times puts that description in its first sentence, but without support anywhere in its article. They’d be more careful with a darker skinned guy named Ahmed.

I found very faint support — self-description as “Christian” in a Facebook profile that was put up just days ago and may be a put-on — elsewhere than the Times article.

As the Brutally Honest blog puts it, “Blood in the water for haters of Christians the world over.  The feeding frenzy will begin in 3, 2, 1…” (HT The Anchoress, who asks some pointed questions)
