Pastor Strangelove
One of Mr Bush’s mullahs (more). LRC’s sub-heading reminds me of an idea Drake Adams has that if Muslims either by force (unlikely) or demographics — immigration and reproduction — did take over the nominally/ex-Christian (I hate the expression ‘post-Christian’) West, rather like the Bogomil dualists (now the Bosnians) in the South Slav lands when the Turks took over, American fundygelicals could be turned relatively easily into Muslims, even fundamentalist ones. From one simplistic knock-off of Catholicism to another, from ‘say you accept Jesus and you’re guaranteed to be saved’ to ‘there is no God but Allah* and Muhammad is his prophet’.

*Simply the Arabic word for God. Christians use it.
