Christian Terrorists?

The New York Times recently published an interesting article (found here) about certain religious books (including many Christian books) that are being banned from some prison libraries because the "Bureau of Prisons" wants to prevent "recruiting grounds for militant Islamic and other religious groups." Okay, I understand the idea being careful in watching what Islamic material is going in there. Islam is a religion that believes in violence. I know I may be "politically incorrect" by saying that (which I am happy to be) but that is just the way it is. For those people who have studied Islam a little they can find that out pretty easily.

However, what about Christianity (and Judaism for that matter)? Why is Christianity being considered dangerous? If Christ was in our culture there probably wouldn't be so many people in prison anyway and there would be a heck of a lot more peace. Likely the 9/11 tragedy wouldn't have occurred if our Nation was a Godly one. However, the Enemy (you know who I'm talking about?) is triumphing here even more by placing limits on religion in our Country. The First Amendment in America guarantees freedom of religion. How could this be called freedom? Our nation is so obsessed with "separation of Church and State" (which is just horse turd to begin with) and yet I find this so ironic. Here the state is determining how the Church is to act here, but yet if the Church DARE step in one inch in State affairs that will not be tolerated.

And we think we live in a free country?
