126. Will you hold Jerry Falwell's accusation that 9/11 was due to gays
Edited on Wed Sep-22-04 10:25 AM by kcwayne
and human secularists against him in 15 years? How about Swaggart's statement that if a gay man looked at him "wrong" he would shoot him on sight? Do you think Trent Lott's Klan association from the 60's might still influence his thinking today?

Cat Steven's statements about Salmon Rushdie, such as the one where he said he would call the Ayatollah to tell him where Salmon was if Salmon came to his doorstep are in this same category of religious insanity.

If you are the security analyst making decisions about who should be put on a watch list, wouldn't you consider someone who made threats to murder on the basis of their religion to warrant consideration?

If I were that analyst, I would have made the same decision unless I was aware of other information about the individual that clearly showed those motivations and "thinking" were no longer relevant based on repeated observed behaviors.
