Rudolph: ‘I prefer Nietzsche to the Bible’

Remember these words from a letter Eric Rudolph wrote to his mother the next time somebody tries to paint him as a “Christian terrorist”:

“Most of them have, of course, an agenda; mostly born-again Christians looking to save my soul. I suppose the assumption is made that because I’m in here I must be a ‘sinner’ in need of salvation, and they would be glad to sell me a ticket to heaven, hawking this salvation like peanuts at a ballgame,” he wrote.

“I do appreciate their charity, but I could really do without the condescension. They have been so nice I would hate to break it to them that I really prefer Nietzsche to the Bible.”
