Declaring War Against Heathens, and Why Not Throw In the Italians Too?

In a decision that actually made sense for once, the Supreme Court has ruled against a Christian student group that
sued a California law school to demand the right to discriminate
against gays. The ruling, which essentially said religious bigotry is
just as evil as any other kind, infuriated one Mike Adams, a North
Carolina professor who has declared "war against the godless" and plans to sic all the "atheist-haters" he can
find on them, surely a noble cause for an educator in charge of opening
young minds to the intellectual possibilities of life.

"I plan to use my young fundamentalist
Christian warriors to undermine the mission of every group that
disagrees with me on the existence of God...I do not seek robust debate.
I seek power over the godless heathen
dissident."
