As Pat Rudolph reads those letters, she bridles at his righteous indignation. It is not her way.

His mother, who once studied to be a nun and joined with activist and pacifist Dorothy Day and the Catholic Workers Party in the 1950s, now sees herself as a libertarian. She once chose the words "anarchist" to describe her views but now believes in a limited government. Her Christian faith is more spiritual than religious, more about meditation than about prayer.

And as for abortion, Eric Rudolph's mother believes the decision belongs to the woman, not to the government.
