Yes, the terrorists are a real threat. No question. So are criminals on our streets.
But if you really want to be scared, if you want to see a real threat to America, watch the movie Jesus Camp.
Religious radicals create suicide bombers, but religious radicals also create people who are trying to pervert the American way of life.
The Muslim radicals are a threat, but they're nothing compared to the Christian radicals who twist everything to their desires. They talk of the Founding Fathers, but they distort everything the Founding Fathers stood for. They talk of this country as a "Christian nation," when it is a nation founded for all people, of any religion or no religion at all.
This is a truly frightening movie, and you should watch it if you're at all complacent about the future of America and the importance of voting. Our very way of life is at stake.
