Attorney General Mukasey announced that the current national security threat we face in the US is not from Calvinists, but from Islamic extremist. This stunning revelation in the New York Sun relieves the concerns of many Calvinist and Calvinist sympathizers.
Asked about so-called profiling of Muslims, Mr. Mukasey said that tactic is not used at airports. However, he used blunt language to defend extra scrutiny the Justice Department gives to militant Islamic groups.
“So far as focusing investigations, we investigate where the threat is coming from. The threat is coming from Islamic extremism. It’s not coming from Calvinism,” the attorney general said. “We’d be out of our minds not to mention the waste of resources to look everyplace simply in the name of being correct.”
At the Founders blog, some raise the issue that to some Christians, Calvinism is worse than terrorism. THey also speculate that the AG is not going to look for a job in the SBC when he steps down, but Founders might have an interest in retaining him as legal counsel. Tim Ellsworth’s readers wish the SBC to be notified, and are concerned that Calvinism was mentioned along with Islamic extremism. Mike Whittmann is more concerned about the Free Will Baptist than the Calvinist. I know some Free Will Baptist, and all the ones I know would rather preach the Gospel to terrorist, while the terrorist is behind bars, than become terrorist themselves, so that group is not a worry either.
