American terrorist Eric Robert Rudolph will plead guilty to bombing the Olympic Games in 1996, a lesbian dance club, and two women’s health centers that provide abortion services. The plea agreement comes during a month when two leading American politicians – Tom Delay and John Cornyn - have issued veiled threats of violence against the judicial branch of government. Rudolph became a folk hero to many in the religious-right. His plea agreement will allow him to escape the death penalty. People like Rudolph draw their courage from remarks like those made by these two congressional leaders. DeLay and Cornyn have done great damage to the United States with their recent statements. If new terrorists from the religious-right emerge the law should hold these two accountable for inciting violence.
