The anti-religious want to see some sort of historical connection between the Crusades and the War on Terror. This is something they have in common with the Islamofascists.
Charlie Gibson’s misquotation and misinterpretation of Sarah Palin is an example of that.
I think that most religious conservatives–including Gov. Palin, as evidenced by her citation of Abraham Lincoln–believe that we must fight where we believe the fight is just and for just causes and pray that we are on God’s side rather than praying that He is on our side.
This, I think, is an important distinction.
