The gospel according to John (Ashcroft) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of unbelief I fear not God. I fear John Ashcroft.

“Civilized people — Muslims, Christians and Jews — all understand that the source of freedom and human dignity is the Creator,” said Ashcroft on Tuesday to a group of Christian broadcasters.

Correct me if I’m misinterpreting the Word of Ashcroft, but he’s saying that a lot of the people he’s supposed to protect are uncivilized. I don’t believe in God, but if I did God would be generous enough to grant the presumption of civility to skeptics, atheists, agnostics and the apathetic.
