An update on the extremist Christian shutdown page, OBJECTIVE: Ministries (a misnomer, might I add).:

(April 25, 2002) We must apologize for Dr. Paley's recently updated article on Evolutionism Propaganda. He got a little carried away with some of his conclusions -- possibly due to his being fed disinformation by some anti-Christian email trollers trying to discredit OBJECTIVE: Ministries. Please bear in mind that Dr. Paley is not as tech-savy as most of us here; in fact he'd be the first to tell you that he is more familiar with the Good Book than he is with a Powerbook. While many of us are uncomfortable with some of the choices in names and imagery used by the mostly non-Christian computer industry, we realize that those are most likely due to ignorance on the part of these unsaved people and not to deliberately evil schemes. However, we do stand by Dr. Paley's general conclusion that the computer industry needs to be more aware of these theological issues and open to questioning of Evolutionist dogma.

And to the tens of thousands of new visitors: Welcome! We will remember you in our prayers.

I suppose they realized how ridiculous they sounded by how many hits they got from "atheist computer nerds" who laughed at their ignorance. I only wish they could remedy even more of their delusions. I appreciate the little bit of apology they gave, however.

They claim to love this country so much, but apparently they don't love it enough to also respect one of its most important principles, freedom of expression even if it disagrees with the norm. Just because I completely disagree with their opinions doesn't mean I'm trying to get their ISP and host to shut them down, which is exactly the reason why they even set up their website in the first place, to shut down a site called LandOver Baptist, a parody of extremist Christian doctrine.

And the fact that they, like many religious extremists from ever country in every era, have mixed nationalism with faith can not escape my disgust.
