Shrines scorched...

Lt Smash writes on how militant atheists have persuaded the San Diego City Council to remove the cross on Mt Soledad. A landmark I've seen a thousand times (without once feeling any desire to extirpate the loathsome creeds of the lesser folk. Guess I haven't figured out how to be a Republican yet.)

But what I wonder is, suppose our forces in Asia happened to shoot up a mosque, and toppled a minaret or two? Would those same people condemn us as war criminals for our disrespect for sacred shrines?

(And I'm sure these secular activists speak with shock and indignation about how Christian busybodies are infiltrating our society and telling everyone else what to do and think...)
