Tim McVeigh was a Traditional Catholic.

And now, back to Jihad Watch.

LOL, was he really?!
Not in any sense the term is usually used:

[quote author=from Wikipedia]McVeigh was raised Roman Catholic.[91] During his childhood, he and his father attended Mass regularly.[92] McVeigh was confirmed at the Good Shepherd Church in Pendleton, New York, in 1985.[93] In a 1996 interview, McVeigh professed belief in "a God", although he said he had "sort of lost touch with" Catholicism and "I never really picked it up, however I do maintain core beliefs."[91] In McVeigh's biography American Terrorist, released in 2002, he stated that he did not believe in a hell and that science is his religion.[94][95] In June 2001, a day before the execution, McVeigh wrote a letter to the Buffalo News identifying himself as agnostic. However, he took the Last Rites, administered by a priest, just before his execution.[96][97][98][99][100][101][/quote]

Ah. 

Anyway, there were no Catholics of any sort flying planes into buildings on 9-11, so I'll continue to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Interesting that it is the Chi Rho symbol found just past the Mithras temple.

Chi Rho was the symbol of good fortune before Emperor Constantine Christianized it.

Recall the source of your factoid?
