Y’all remember the War on Christmas, right? Y’know, when department stores told their employees to say “happy holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”? Clearly an act of war by godless liberal heathens against the Armies of Christ.
Well, looks like some Christians have decided to fight back, Al-Qaeda-style:
Man Arrested for Plotting Clinic Attack
Man in Maryland makes a pipe bomb to blow up an abortion clinic, after stealing a gun from a friend so that he could shoot abortion doctors fleeing the building. Luckily, he was caught by police after the would-be terrorist’s friends informed the cops.
Teams Ready To Test Sex Shop “Weapon of Mass Destruction”
Some residents of Waldo, Florida were very angry that an adult book store was going to open in their town and protested and held prayer vigils to make it stop. Until “somebody” installed a crude device outside the shop that pumped some sort of acid into the building, through a gap above the air conditioner. The cops there are calling this an act of terrorism, and the device a “weapon of mass destruction.”
Terrorism is, of course, a highly subjective term, most realistically defined as “violence with which I disagree”, or “violence by people I oppose”. The most objective definition I can think of is “violence directed at civilians with the aim of effecting policy.” So while the two acts above seem to potentially be “terrorism”, I don’t know that they aimed at effecting policy. These may have just been attempts to hurt a lot of people, failed massacres.
We don’t hear much about these sort of stories, because they don’t fit the media’s “terrorists are Muslim extremists” plotline.
