Hmm, no outrage about the long history of Christian aggression towards other religions and the forced conversions or killing of NUMEROUS native populations ! How about the poster boy of evangelicals , Pat Robertson . In may he told a caller that he MUST destroy a friends Buddha statue ! Oh you silly Christians , you really should stop pointing your fingers at everyone else! Your just as guilty and stupid as the Muslims !

If they blow up the pyramids, what are the aliens going to land on? Great, now we get to spend trillions on an alien war too.
