Forgetting the Enemy

Via Mike at Primacy of Awesome, we get this story from a New Jersey school:
BURLINGTON, NJ, April 3, 2007 ( – On Thursday, March 22, officials at Burlington Township High School enlisted the help of two local policemen to carry out a mock ‘hostage situation’ drill at their school. The drill invoked disapproval from Christian students as the student body was told that the alleged gunmen were “members of a right-wing fundamentalist group called the 'New Crusaders' who don't believe in separation of church and state.”
Well, I guess it could happen. But given the terrorist attack on a school in Russia, wouldn’t it make much more sense to pretend the gunmen are Islamic fundamentalists? Since totalitarian Islam is, you know, at war with us, isn’t that a more likely threat?

But then that high school would be insulting an enemy that fights back. Moreover, the liberals in Burlington would be going against the dogma of their religion – multiculturalism.
