Plenty of Crazy To Go Around

We’ve been learning that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a follower of the radical Australian Islamic cleric Feiz Muhammed.   Muhammed has denounced the Harry Potter books and movies for their dangerous paganism.

Does that ring a bell?  Here in the U. S., we have our Christian fundamentalists, like John Hagee and James Dobson, attacking Harry Potter in the exact same way.

Plenty of crazy to go around in both Christian and Islamic extremist circles.

Quote of the Day 2

“Both Rick Santorum and James Dobson, the former deity of Focus on the Family, had endorsed Sanford’s opponent. If the religious right can’t beat Mark Sanford in a Republican primary in South Carolina, can it win anywhere?”
