More Sectarian Violence

This time it struck not the Hurriyah neighborhood of Baghdad, but my hometown of Greenville, NC. Coincidence?


While two churches were burned and another was broken into, there have no Associated Press reports of Baptists being pulled out of Sunday school, doused in moonshine, and burned alive by a mob of Methodists in four-by-fours.


In all seriousness, I'm thankful that no one was hurt. As Memorial Baptist's associate minster Rick Bailey noted, "That's bricks and concrete, and that stuff can be replaced."

Oh please. Stop sugarcoating, the violence has spiraled out of control and Greenville is sliding toward all-out civil war.

Yeah, and if you'd get out of the Columbia Green Zone, or out of your hotel, you could report the truth! Embed with some Sunday schools, perhaps!

Man, you left wing media types!

By the way, the local commander of the SC State Police, Captain Jamie Hussein says that they're just willy-nilly killin' folk out there!

Do you know why the Baptists build their churches out of brick? It's to repel the Knights of Columbus when they attack.

The violence seems to be getting out of hand maybe you should move to Iraq, I here the streets are flowing with milk and honey.

Sounds like a quagmire. And how will you ever handle the brutal North Carolina winter?
