Ethical Atheist asks Is Pat Robertson a Terrorist? and Is Jerry Falwell a Terrorist? .

America and the world are outraged by the attacks on the World Trade Centers and the Pentagon. We are living in fear of further attacks and now even fear our own mail might infect us with anthrax. We are trying to bring to justice Osama bin Laden and the Al Qaeda terrorist network. The trouble is, we can't find them. So, we direct our anger at the Taliban government of Afghanistan for harboring terrorists. However, the United States appears to be harboring its own group of dangerous religious fanatics who, upon close examination, seem to share many of the same characteristics of the terrorists we are seeking abroad. Let's look at one, shall we?

The articles take the form of tables comparing the words and actions of the evangelists and Osama bin Laden.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
