Hunter, the "radical Christian" trope is a tired staple of the left, as you know. Some years back, Andrew Sullivan put it forth most tiringly, and I wrote a column, called "The Politics of Horniness," for Enter Stage Right, here.

I concluded:

What does Andrew Sullivan really mean? If Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson are no better than Mullah Omar and Osama bin Laden, what should we do? Send Green Berets to root out The 700 Club? Or does Sullivan mean that Mullah Omar and Osama bin Laden are no worse than Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson? If so, we could simply exile them from the A list of the Eastern seaboard. Maybe let them host a late-night down-market cable television show.
