    The world was shocked when ancient statues of buddha, carved into the cliffs of Ahghanistan, were purposely destroyed by the Taliban regime.

    Our courthouse has a bas relief of Moses and the 10 Commandments carved in the limestone facade. Guess what? A group is saying that violates their non-religious freedom and should be sandblasted off.

    American Taliban. Instead of military Islam, it is militant atheism.

    As much as I share the sentiment behind your thoughts, Bob, there's a bit of a difference here.

    Those who lived under Taliban lived in constant fear of a cruel and brutal regime. We are our government.

    They had no legal recourse. We do.

    If you really want to see the spirit of the Taliban displayed today, go hang out on onlinebaptist.com sometime.

    Not really. Not any longer. It is a delusion.
