Hell Freezes Over: I Agree With Hugh Hewitt

Hell must have frozen over, because I agree wholeheartedly with excitable conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt in his lead post today....

Tancredo's Crusade and its Costs

"Congressman Tom Tancredo takes to the pages of the Denver Post today in an effort to resurrect his reputation. He fails because he doubles down on his absurd insistence that "bombing Mecca" ought to be "on the table." No serious politician in the country has come to Tancredo's defense, and indeed I have not seen any credible authority on war or religion endorse this foolishness.

No serious Christian theologian can endorse what is obviously an immoral threat against another faith. Tancredo is drawing encouragment from the small percentage of Americans who have fallen into the erroneous belief that all of Islam is arrayed against the West....

Serious leaders in the West refuse to indulge the hatred for a different religion that is implicit in Tancredo's frothings....

Tancredo then quotes a couple of extremist Islamists and/or apologists for such extremist Islamists before finishing with....a libel on every Muslim who has indeed condemned terror and especially on the between 5,000 and 10,000 Muslims serving in the American military...."

And here's final proof that hell has, indeed, frozen over hard and solid.....a link to Hugh Hewitt's site with the remainder of this astute post.
