    "So now we can add liberals to the list of enemy combatants in America's culture war.

    According to the News-Sentinel, Knoxville police department investigator Steve Still wrote in the search warrant that Jim David Adkisson, the man who was arrested in the rampage, went to the church "because of its liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country, and that he felt that the Democrats had tied his country's hands in the war on terror and they had ruined every institution in America with the aid of major media outlets."

    Adkisson, who had served in the military, said "that because he could not get to the leaders of the liberal movement he would then target those that had voted them in office," the search warrant states. Among the items seized from Adkisson's house were three books: "The O'Reilly Factor," by television commentator Bill O'Reilly; "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder," by radio personality Michael Savage; and "Let Freedom Ring," by political pundit Sean Hannity.

    The Unitarian Universalist Association might be the most liberal denomination in the country. Most members consider themselves part of a post-Christian religion that draws wisdom from all religions and philosophies. There is no central creed, but the denomination promotes a set of principles that includes a belief in "the inherent worth and dignity of every person.""

    Are you suggesting that Bill Oreilly's books are the new Catcher in the Rye?

    Liberals are now hinting at bringing back book burning? Next they will want to ban smoking.

    Who's calling for book burnings? It sounds like the writer is asking people to take responsibility for their words.

    A concept lost on those that pretend to be conservatives, apparently.

    You mean like how all you Liberals constantly claiming everyone that doesn't vote for Obama will be a racist and a moron? Or how you insist that anyone that voted for Bush in 2000 and 2004 are idiots and morons? You mean those kind of words? Perhaps you mean all the words where you keep claiming Bush lied and you are going to get him after he gets out of Office? Those words?

    How about the words were you keep claim Conservatives in general are ignorant people?

    Excuse me if I ignore YOUR advice on hateful words, ok?

    what responsibility, EXACTLY, is that?


    I see you totally missed my Salinger reference.


    Tell me, what should have happened to Ward Churchill when he wrote HIS book?
