The man, Anders Behring Breivik, who used a car-bomb and guns to slaughter 76 people in Norway last Friday is a conservative Christian. And based on his strong favorable beliefs about Israel he could very well be considered a neoconservative.

Breivik has written a manifesto (PDF) of over 1,500 pages explaining his beliefs about Christianity, Islam and a host of other topics. His main emphasis is on taking Europe back to the Middle Ages. He suggests to fellow European Christian conservatives to reform the Knights of Templar. They were the knights who were the tip of the spear for the Christian Crusades which brought about much death and misery in the so-called "Holy Land." They also brought about much financial wealth for the Catholic Church and themselves. They are considered the first multinational corporation.

Breivik is big on chivalry in his manifesto. However, his actions of slaughtering unsuspecting unarmed people, including many young people, show he doesn't know the meaning of the word "chivalry."

His manifesto is titled 2083 - A European Declaration of Independence. This title makes many people think of the United States Declaration of Independence. However, the American Declaration is a Deistic document in that it mentions God only in Deistic terms such as Nature's God and never mentions Jesus, the Bible, Christianity, etc. Breivik's manifesto is openly a Christian document which does frequently mention Jesus and Christianity.

On page 650 of his manifesto he writes, "I believe Europe should strive for: A cultural conservative approach where monoculturalism, moral, the nuclear family, a free market, support for Israel and our Christian cousins of the east, law and order and Christendom itself must be central aspects (unlike now). Islam must be re-classified as a political ideology and the Quran and the Hadith banned as the genocidal political tools they are."

It's either his ignorance or hypocrisy which makes him want to classify Islam as a "political ideology" but not also Judaism. Judaism is all about a greater state of Israel and the blood-soaked Torah is frequently used as a "genocidal political tool." For example Deuteronomy 4:1 claims that God said to the Hebrews/Jews, "Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you." Numbers 31:17-18 has Moses instructing the Israeli army, "Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves." Couple this with what Judaism has at its heart; a land and a virgin grab for the Hebrews/Jews. Why Breivik doesn't mention this fact has got to be, as mentioned earlier, either ignorance or hypocrisy. For a list of many, but not all, Biblical passages which make it painfully obvious that Judaism is an aggressive genocidal political ideology that wants Israel "high above all nations of the earth"  just as much, if not more than, Islam wants to rule the world, click here. The Deist and American founder Thomas Paine has made clear this Christian hypocrisy when he wrote in The Age of Reason , "Christianity grounds itself originally upon the Bible (Old Testament), and the Bible (Old Testament) was established altogether by the sword, and that in the worst use of it - not to terrify, but to extirpate. The Jews made no converts; they butchered all." These are very inconvenient truths for the Christian religious right.

Breivik promotes Christian martyrdom, similar to Islam promoting Islamic martyrdom. He states, "A person unwilling to martyr himself for a greater cause can never call himself a Knight and a Christian individual unwilling to martyr himself for the preservation of European Christendom can never call himself a Knight of Christ." This shows the Christian religious right is just as violence prone as Islamic fundamentalists.

In order to bring the world light years closer to progress and peace we need to replace these despicable "revealed" religions with the natural religious philosophy of Deism. As Thomas Paine wrote in The Age of Reason , we need a revolution in religion! For free down-loadable Deism leaflets please click here.
