If they can't tell the difference between radical Islamic terrorists and people who enjoy reading novels that aren't in the Left Behind series, that's their problem. Let's show them that they would be better off hiding their authoritarian, theocratic, reflex-driven views under whatever discount bushel they can find at the nearest Wal-Mart. They should be ashamed: it's our task to shame them.
