Eric Rudolph has spoken out of both sides of his mouth- YOU have made a choice to believe one of his stories over the others. Suit yourself- but don’t pretend you’re doing so based on a careful analysis of the facts.
You have your own axes to grind with Christianity, and not surprisingly, you interpret Rudolph’s actions accordingly.
In the same way, the two thugs who murdered Matthew Shepard have changed their story at least twice as to why they did so. Once, they said it was becaue he was gay. More recently, they have claimed they were really just after money for crystal meth.
Which story is true? I have no idea; all I know for sure is that they’re murderes who’ve lied at least once about their motives. But WHICH story people choose to believe is generally based NOT on the facts, but on which story suits their political purposes. If Matthew Shepard was killed because he was gay, he becomes a useful political icon. If he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time when some druggies wanted money… he’s of far less use to the gay cause.
All we KNOW is that Eric Rudolph is a remorseless killer. His reasons are, at best, unclear… though I’m inclined to believe what he’s told his mother. I don’t think he takes Christianity any more seriously than Der Trihs does.
