Lucia Norwegian killer epitomises evil

There is no justification for what Anders Breivik did in Norway when he conducted a killing spree of unarmed teenagers last year. Now his trial has started and the world will watch and will be subjected to his rationalisations (that he acted in self-defence!) and be horrified and people will wonder, are there more of him out there?

There might well be. It would take a person who has heart of stone and regards his enemies as less than human to do something like what Breivik did.  He has identified himself with the Knights Templar*, much like an anti-Christ figure who pretends to be good, but is in fact evil.

I think as a result of his actions it become harder for any one identified as "right-wing" to get their message out. We will become associated with Breivik, even thought we are nothing like him and condemn his actions in the strongest terms. The Norwegians may be televising his trial for many reasons, but I'm sure the propaganda value figured highly into their decision. At least they won't be showing his testimony.

*The Knights Templar (as they were intially set up) were a devout religious order of soldier-monks who fought in the Holy Land against the Mohammedans. They didn't rampage through their own towns killing the children of politicians with whom they disagreed. This is the problem with non-believers using Christian imagery and traditions - they see only the external and miss what is really important.

If you want to know more about the Knights and want to be assured of an accurate history, I strongly recommend this book by French historian Regine Pernoud: The Templars Knights Of Christ. I've linked to the Kindle edition below, but if you prefer paper copy, just follow the link on Amazon to the paperback page. Also, have a look at this page on the Catholic Encyclopaedia: The Knights Templars and my previous post that includes the foreward to the book below: Correctly the mythology around the Knights Templar.
