School for the American Taliban

Here you go!

A student from Liberty University was arrested for making bombs. Of course, in line with the quality of his university they were *crappy* bombs, but he did give it the college try.

He intended to use them on any protesters at Jerry Falwell's funeral.

The most infamous of those protesters were supposed to be the congregants of Westboro Baptist Church (shame upon the Baptists for not suing these nutcases for blackening the otherwise-innocuous name of Baptists everywhere).

Ironic. Right now I'm listening to South Pacific and "You Have to be Carefully Taught" just came on. I'm afraid my distaste for Westboro and Liberty U people is a lot more recent than being "carefully taught" at "6 or 7 or 8". And if the groups are at war, it sort of strikes me as a Kilkenney Cats solution.

Oh, Jesus on crack...

This is one of those news items you couldn't dream up if you tried. I mean, just the idea of a "college" kid setting off a bomb at the funeral in honor of of the guy who founded the kid's "school" is, so...

Wow. No matter how much time goes by I just cannot get used to how, fucking, stupid these fundeys truly are. Do they have their brains surgically removed as part of their freshmen orientation, or what?

Stupid..

Tho, to be fair, one sentence in my previous comment isn't looking too smart, either. That's what happens when I edit without proofreading...

Gasoline and soap is one of the oldest pieces of misinformation in bomb making and it produces a terrorist weapon, not an effective weapon.

No one will dare to call a Christianist a terrorist, no matter what they do, but that's what this was about.
