Throughout his trial, Breivik   was described as a Christian Fundamentalist, a devout Islamophobe, and Zionist: parallels to the Christian Right were fended off by Christian Right leaders as impossible since it did not consider him Christian, and by noted anti-Islam pundits such as  Pamela   Geller , who tried to tie Breivik   with "Islamic Supremacists." 

Whither God's Ambulance Chasers?

Due to the outpouring of solace and sympathy from Aurora's own churches, a "bible rain" may not be warranted, but one has to ask just how the Christian Right will portray the hapless Denver suburb in the near future: will it too be excoriated as a town that has abandoned God and therefore, deserving of the massacre? When will signs be put up saying "God Hates Aurora"   ala  Fred Phelps? 

And The Feeding Frenzy May Never   End

Unconscionable as it may seem, the "Virtuous" Vultures will continue to go on, tearing at the fabric of the nation's moral self-worth until they have made Aurora synonymous with their theme of God's abandonment. And yet they are simply taking advantage of a  fortuitous event: the tragedy of Aurora could not have happened at a better time for the Christian Right and its politicians, because incessant moralizing during an election year can become tedious, while a seemingly "senseless" tragedy can breath life into a "liberals support the culture of death" meme. 

"The whole National Guard couldn't make James do what is right. He has become his own law, showing contempt for authority and doing what is right in his own eyes. He is the product of the Culture of Death that the DNC   has embraced. ... This is the spawn of the ideology of the Democratic Party and now we look at each other in awkward amazement, wondering 'what in the world just happened?'" -   Pat   McEwen , Operation Save America.

The "Virtuous" Vultures have spoken.

*In a well-documented incident, the late Jerry Falwell responded to the Asian Tsunami event with food, clothing and 600,000 Biblical tracts - to a predominantly Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu population. The donation was declined... on the airstrip. Falwell did not consider it an insult. Righteous   arrogance breed stupidity.

**Ala   Cindy "Japan-is-shaped-like-a-dragon" Jacobs, the "prophetess"   who had a quick answer for Japan's earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster
