Two-Liner of the Month

I'm an electronic subscriber to Joseph Sobran's column, "The Reactionary Utopian." This means I get his columns in my email a couple of weeks before they're released, but I'm enjoined from posting or otherwise distributing them. But I just read one about the potential upcoming attack on Iran, entitled "Apocalypse Now?", that you'll be able to read here come May 11, and I just have to share a quick little snippet from it. Maybe I can excuse it as "fair use" or something ... or maybe I'll just have to be a micro-criminal. Anyway:

Islam, Bush has said, is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a few fanatics. Some, observing him, might say the same about Christianity.

Ain't it the truth, though.

Has there ever been a religion that has not been hijacked by a few fanatics? Or a political party, social movement, workers organization, or humble condo association?

There's just something about humans....
