The next time you’re tempted to make the case for terrorism as always in the name of Islam, don’t forget that we Christians also have insane fanatical fundamentalists who ignore the teachings of their religion.
An unrepentant Eric Rudolph declared Monday that abortion must be fought with “deadly force” as a judge sentenced him to life in prison for setting off a remote-controlled bomb at an abortion clinic that killed an off-duty police officer and maimed a nurse.
… Under a plea bargain that spared him a death sentence, Rudolph received two life sentences without parole for the Birmingham bombing. Next month, he will receive two more life terms for the deadly Olympic bombing and two other attacks in Atlanta.
… Rudolph faces sentencing Aug. 22 in Atlanta for the Olympic bombing, which killed one woman and injured more than 100 other people, and for 1997 bombings at an abortion clinic and a gay bar in Atlanta.
I’m amused that he ironically avoided the death penalty. How liberal of him! Nonetheless, I’m against the death penalty because a) it doesn’t serve as a deterrent, and b) I love the idea of this horrible monster sitting in a cell for the rest of his life, never to be free again. He has probably 60 years to sit there and rot.
