Christianity--a religion of peace!

Via PZ, I've been alerted to something truly horrific. Remember Paul Hill, the man who murdered an abortion provider and one of his escorts, and wounded another? Well, people are praising him as a hero. Well, that's to be expected. But they're planning "Paul Hill Days", July 26-29, "to honor him as God's man and our hero." And the truly horrible part of it is this:
The highlight of the "Paul Hill Days" stunt is a reenactment of the assassination. It is the exact parallel to sending a noose to a black civil rights leader or a bullet and picture of his child to an Iraqi Sunni living in a Shi'ite town. If this stunt is a success, think of some of the other celebrations we might be subjected to: Southern Nationalists holding John Wilkes Booth Days complete with reenactments of his most famous moment in a theater, Timothy McVeigh Days with a reenactment of the last moments of the Murrah daycare center, and, of course, Mohamed Atta Days with what horrors I'll leave you to imagine.

Emphasis mine.

But remember: only Muslims are terrorists! Christians don't do that kind of thing, and neither do Jews. And of course the real bad people are atheists and anyone else who doesn't accept Jesus.
Most if not all rapes, murders, robberies and thefts are committed by people, like you, who reject Jesus Christ.

Quoth the man sponsoring a celebration of a terrorist and convicted murderer.
