Even if it wasn't necessarily "the year of the atheist," 2007 was a good year for American atheism. Of course, this does not mean that we can afford to rest anytime soon. Many American Christians are determined to return us to the Dark Ages by undoing the Enlightenment values that weaken their religion. A small but politically influential group of them even seek to promote the extinction of our species to fulfill their end-times theology! As if to remind us that now is not the time for complacency, we have news of what may be more acts of Christian terrorism on American soil.
Planned Parenthood clinics are under attack in Albuquerque, NM. The motives for the attacks is still not clear. While Christian terrorism cannot yet be ruled out, KRQE News (NM) reports that the motive for at least one of the attacks may have something to do with one of the perpetrator's girlfriend planning to have an abortion at the clinic.
