Well, now…. Here we have the statements of Eric Rudolph., and they twist some tails, to say the least.

In the reading of the document, a few points leap rightout at me…. Here’s someone who is operating on his principles.. and based on them, doesn’t recognize the moral authority of the government to govern, and takes those principles to their logical conclusion.

My point is not to argue for, or defend Rudolph. Nor is it to question his motives, or attack them. I may take the time to do that later.

Rather, it’s to point up, that whatever else Rudolph may be, he is certainly an object lesson for the point I’ve been making the last couple weeks; This is what happens when people who consider that the government lacks moral authority, start going outside the system, based on their principles.
