"I can imagine quite a bit"

The PZ flap goes on. Over at Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, Ed Darrell has been in a conversation with one Father Joe, who claims that Cracker Abuse* is "NOT FREE SPEECH BUT TERRORISM."

What happens if this situation escalates? Will Dr. Myers take credit when churches are vandalized and tabernacles are destroyed so that hosts might be desecrated? Will he post pictures of priests and nuns beaten in the streets so that his hoodlums can steal the hosts and oils for the sick?
and then in the comments:
Urging people to steal hosts and to desecrate them is the sort of thing once reserved to crazy people abd dabblers in the occult. It can escalate into all sorts of other** crimes.

The Other. There's just no telling what they might do! Father Joe extols the virtues of imagination, but I wish he would reign his in when it comes to imagining how criminal a person has to be to disagree with him.

*No jokes about the South; I already thought of them.
**Other crimes? There hasn't even been one.
