US media ignore ‘Christian terrorists’

“Mark Uhl, a student at Liberty University, was in possession of homemade bombs when he was arrested at [Jerry] Falwell’s funeral. He reportedly planned to use them against any protesters who might disrupt the festivities.

“Uhl had this to say on the social networking website My Space. ‘Christians, fear of death, fear of death. The fear of death shows you don’t believe.’ He added this eye opening statement as well. ‘God needs soldiers to fight so his children may live free. Are you afraid??? I’m not. SEND ME!!!’ Uhl sounds an awful lot like Osama bin Laden, who exhorts Muslims not to fear death when fighting in the name of their religion.

“While Americans have been told to fear Islam and all things Muslim, Christians are riding around with home made bombs. The Uhl story was mentioned by the media for only a day or two. The threat from Christians who publicly express a willingness to die for their faith goes unreported.”
