Just when the Islamists seem to getting ahead on the anti-blasphemy front, America's religious extremists reminds us they exist as well. They're targeting AOL because of alleged blasphemy in its new Instant Messaging icon ad campaign. Money quote from the outraged fundamentalist:
"He is the Creator and Savior of the world. He alone is to be worshipped. To take His name in vain, or use as a common thing is blasphemy, a vulgar sin of offense. Perhaps you have not read the Third Commandment, since they have removed it from so many public monuments in the last decade. But breaking it as a means of marketing your products offends the mind of everyone who worships Him."
I'm waiting for Bill Clinton to weigh in.
