Yeah, I always get those two confused.

For obvious reasons, this is somewhat disappointing:

The director of a Christian boot camp and an employee were arrested Friday for allegedly dragging a 15-year-old girl behind a van after she fell behind the group during a morning run, authorities said.

Charles Eugene Flowers and Stephanie Bassitt of San Antonio-based Love Demonstrated Ministries, a 32-day boot camp, were arrested on aggravated assault charges for the alleged June 12 incident.

The two are accused of tying the girl to the van with a rope then dragging her, according to an arrest affidavit filed Wednesday by the Nueces County Sheriff's Department.

I say "disappointing" since you'd think that, as Christian leaders, those folks would know that dragging people behind trucks is for blacks, while rebellious youngsters are to be executed by stoning. I mean, there's nothing more embarrassing than putting someone to death, then suddenly realizing, "Whoopsie." Then all the rest of the Christians end up making fun of you, and you can never live it down.

And that really sucks, doesn't it?

Imagine that, christian extremists not being talked about as, well, extremists. I can only imagine the flap that would be created if that other religion of peace did the same.

You're forgetting the fact that they believe in Jesus so they're automatically forgiven for whatever evil they do.
