In the beginning God created mankind in His own image. Since then, mankind has created god in its own worst image.
Creating such a god in their own image, some people have suggested that the recent terrorism is God's judgment on the United States.
These so-called fundamentalists profess a God of vengeance who sends evil to punish even the innocent for supposed sins of a nation. The "Great Satan" is punished by a sinister attack that kills thousands and works a calamity in the lives of thousands — even millions — more.
Alas for our nation, these are not foreign fundamentalists from an unpronounceable place. These are our own brothers and sisters who see the treachery of terrorists as God's judgment on America because of abortion and other "abominations against God." In ultimate effect, these people have accepted the most spiteful propaganda that Bin Laden and his ilk could spew.
