Religious nutjobs resort to terrorism to defend creationism

Here's an interesting way to get rid of those pesky non-believers. Try to get the police to take side with your religion. University of Colorado police are investigating a series of letters and emails sent by a religiously themed group to the biology lab on the campus. Police Cmdr. Brad Wiesley said:

"It basically said anybody who doesn't believe in our religious belief is wrong and should be taken care of."

Police will increase patrols in and around the area.

Full story.

Very unfortunately, I think there is a good chance that similarly motivated fundamentalists will begin popping up everywhere. I have no doubt that the next full scale war will be [again] over religion. I find it so insane that all of the monotheistic religions are the most aggressive and yet they are just people praying, in their own special way, to the same omnipotent/omnipresent deity.

Hmm... Not sure to wade in or not but what the hell. What other wars do you claim were started by religion?

US Civil War: No (Nth vs Sth).
WWI: No (Eurpoean empires collapsing).
WWII: No (Facism and unfinished business from WWI).
Korea: No (Communism).
Vietnam: No (Communism).
Iraq1 : No (Oil).
Iraq2: No (Oil).

So unless you want to go back to like 1000 years ago, what major wars exactly do you mean?

I concede I was talking about pre renaissance. The holy wars, jihad, the crusades, autobots vs deceptacons etc.

I think they should be taken care of as well. Lunatic asylum, full time care from a family member, psychologist, experimental drugs, lolly bananas, guide monkey.

Mike you should get a job on Today Tonight or A Current Affair. Not enough sensationalist journalists out there at the moment, hey?
Maybe another Paris Hilton thread, go on, I know you want to?
I know, Aboriginal land rights porn alcohole and pedophilia? No, to meaty.
Beckham and his girl= RATINGS.
Mikey or Mike Moore. tic.

Howdy Gilly.

Does that mean every story about terrorism is just sensationalism? Today Tonight are actually looking for people like you - not like me :-)

If a story is not to your liking, ignore it. We have a diverse audience. Some like the quick and easy stuff you might describe as sensationalism, others prefer the longer more thought out content. It's my job to make sure we try to cater for both.

This particular post appeals to a wide percentage of our audience. I know this because I examine my stats daily. I can generate a summary of topics and related percentages of our audience's preferences. And as it happens, religion, when we post content on the subject - is a hot topic here - which you can vouch for :-)

But that doesn't mean we have the balance right just yet, but we hope to get there.

Not all the stories posted here actually have any personal or relevant meaning to the authors, some do, some don't. Could you imagine if editors from all mediums only published stories they personally sided with? Oh wait, I think Fox News do that...

Jokes aside, if you want to contribute something with more 'meat' as you say, we are always looking for contributors.
