Fox News' Bill O'Reilly Monday expressed outrage at the "liberal media" for reporting that Anders Behring-Breivik, the man accused of the July 22 terror attacks in Norway, was a Christian.

"But Breivik is not a Christian," O'Reilly complained. "That's impossible. No one believing in Jesus commits mass murder. The man might have called himself a Christian on the net, but he is certainly not of that faith... we can find no evidence, none, that this killer practiced Christianity in any way."

Perhaps O'Reilly missed the fact that Breivik asked to be baptized at the age of 15 or that he identified himself as a Christian on his Facebook page.
