Osama and Pat

From The Christian Science Monitor

On Osama Bin Laden

He seems to feel that his theological credibility rests on convincing Muslims that they are everywhere under attack.

For those who grew up in Conservative Christian households, that statement may very well show how much Zealots of both faiths have in common. The 700 Cub spent half it's air time telling viewers how much Christians were under attack both around the world and in America.

I'm not calling Osama Bin Laden a Muslim Pat Robertson mind you, because Pat never encouraged a few dozen people to fly a plane into a building.

Of course Pat did say that the 9/11 attacks were in part, judgment from God for things like permitting homosexuals to exist and legalized abortion, so I don't consider him much better.
