Good for you, followers of the adherents of the Abrahamic faiths! It's so heartening to see you still going strong after these past couple of months, which, quite frankly, must have been pretty rough on you. What with the institutionalized child rape, attempted mass murder plots and now growing evidence that the Times Square car-bomber may be an operative from one of your fundamentalist groups…
Officials said that after two days of intense questioning of the bombing suspect, Faisal Shahzad, evidence was mounting that the group, the Pakistani Taliban, had helped inspire and train Mr. Shahzad in the months before he is alleged to have parked an explosives-filled sport utility vehicle in a busy Manhattan intersection on Saturday night. Officials said Mr. Shahzad had discussed his contacts with the group, and investigators had accumulated other evidence that they would not disclose.
So, it's nice to see that you are moving on unfettered with your National Day of Prayer, the one day of the year… when people pray? Or something? I don't know. I personally don't have the moral fortitude to participate in "this magnificent day"…
The 59th annual National Day of Prayer was held Thursday against a backdrop of controversy and growing doubts about the future of the event, which a federal judge recently declared unconstitutional…
"America was birthed in prayer and founded on the God of the Bible, on his biblical principles and on his moral values," Day of Prayer organizer Shirley Dobson said. Dobson blamed the controversy on a "small band of self-proclaimed atheists and agnostics" determined to "take down this magnificent day." Dobson is married to Focus on the Family [Ed note: which you may remember from here] founder James Dobson…
If America is going to pray today, I only ask that it pray for a better future when religious groups like the ones mentioned above can practice their faith in peace, without having to worry about persecution from "small band[s] of self-proclaimed atheists and agnostics" like this guy.
Because, really, we're counting on these people to provide us with our "principles and… moral values."

There is this…
In an interview with Fox News' Shepard Smith, Andrea Harsh described [Hutaree leader David Brian Stone] her former fiancé's love of guns, violent opposition to President Obama, and support for Ron Paul as his three main preoccupations.
I'm just sayin' is all.

Oh, my. Have you heard about this not-actually-Christian Christian group Hutaree that was planning to murder a bunch of cops? I'm sure that I'm supposed to be disturbed about this, but I'm not sure exactly what kind of disturbed I'm supposed to be. I mean, am I supposed to be no holds barred Muslim soldier shooting people on military base disturbed, or just mildly guy flying plane into IRS building disturbed?
Nine members of the Christian militia group Hutaree have been indicted on multiple charges involving an alleged plot to attack police, including seditious conspiracy and attempted use of weapons of mass destruction, the U.S. Attorney in Michigan announced this morning…
The Hutaree members allegedly "planned to kill an unidentified member of local law enforcement and then attack the law enforcement officers who gather in Michigan for the funeral."
The indictment continues: "According to the plan, the Hutaree would attack law enforcement vehicles during the funeral procession with Improvised Explosive Devices with Explosively Formed Projectiles, which, according to the indictment, constitute weapons of mass destruction."
Oh, this one's tough. It really is. On the one hand, this is a Christian group, not a Muslim one. So, that's a point towards Patriotic Protestation. But, on the other hand, Mike Vanderboegh — the former militia guy who was inciting conservatives to reenact Kristallnacht because health care reform passed Congress — thinks they're a little too crazy for his taste. So, that's a point towards Domestic Terrorism.
This is gonna be a squeaker. Make your call, and meet me after the jump to see if you were right…
