Us and Them

Best of the Web today:

Jack Nargundkar of Germantown, Md., is confused, as he made clear in a letter to the editor of the New York Times the other day (third letter):

The most critical conclusion to be drawn from the [Schiavo] case is that with the injection of religion into our politics and our governance, it has become increasingly difficult to differentiate between the demands of “evangelism” in a Western democracy and “fundamentalism” in a Middle Eastern theocracy.

Jack, you’re in luck, for we know just how to distinguish them. If someone is demanding that a life be spared, he’s probably an evangelist in a Western democracy. If he’s demanding the infidels be murdered, chances are he’s a fundamentalist in a Middle Eastern theocracy.
