The PC Revolution is taking a very dark turn in my opinion. The latest attack is in California according to this Fox News story:
You can read more about it here at Little Green Footballs. I honestly don't understand why people are taking offense to this. The National Guardsman didn't suggest that all Muslims ought to be executed and denied entry to heaven. He said that terrorists ought to be killed and denied entry to heaven.
So if you're a Muslim, and you believe that Islam is a religion of peace, and that Islamic terrorists have distorted Islam in an evil and vile way, and think that terrorism is bad... why would this offend you? Why would you want a terrorist to be rewarded by going to heaven? Here is what they said:
Apparently you've never talked to a Catholic... because they tell each other they're going to hell all the time for going against the church. I'd think that the Islamic church saying that terrorists will be denied entry to heaven would be pretty damned powerful, and something I'd like them to come out and say. This seems like they're promoting the opposite idea... which leads me to believe that they think terrorism is acceptable. Now that is something I find offensive.
