Christians as terrorists

By Phil Lawler ( bio - articles - email ) | Apr 28, 2005

Over at National Review Online, Stanley Kurtz offers his typical insightful perspective on the secular liberals who think that Christians are a menace because they're so... so... what's the word I'm looking for?

Oh, yeah: intolerant. Christians are intolerant. And the proof is: the Left can't tolerate them.

Kurtz comments:

According to Harper’s, conservative Christians are making “war on America.” Can you imagine the reaction to a cover story about a “war on America” by blacks, gays, Hispanics, or Jews?

But wait: If Christians are making war on America, then American should be able to fight back, right? Kurtz gets that point, too:

For a very long time now, secular liberals have treated conservative Christians as the modern embodiment of evil, the one group you’re allowed to openly hate.
