Schiavo Alert: The Rifqa Bary Case

Take a look at that video, evangelicals and anti-Muslim crusaders. Are you really, really sure you want to risk your credibility on the Fathima Rifqa Bary case? Y'all remember how the Terri Schiavo thing backfired, right? Actually, this one is the media mutation of the Schiavo story and Elian Gonzalez -- a Florida-based custody battle with a religious catalyst. Yikes.

Anyway, Christians: Are you all positive you want to stand squarely behind a guy like Blake Lorenz, the pastor of a church called Global Revolution? And lest that name be too cryptic, here's how Lorenz described the stakes in the St. Pete Times:

"These are the last days, these are the end times, and this conflict between Islam and Christianity is going to grow greater. This conflict between good and evil is going to grow greater."

OK, pastor, I give up. Which side is good?
