NJ School Hostage Drill:
Portrays Killers as Christians

Remember Beslan

A New Jersey High School Superintendent pulled his head out of his ass long enough to recognize that there is actually a terrorist threat here in the United States, and so he decided he'd better get ready for it by staging a drill.

Only guess who the mock terrorist enemy was. Go on, guess. I'll give you five seconds (cue Jeopardy music).

Why, Christians, naturally. (From Atlas Shrugs):

New Jersey School Stages Practice Hostage Drill – Portrays Killers as Fundamentalist Christians
Superintendent says,

“We need to practice under conditions as real as possible”
By Meg Jalsevac

BURLINGTON, NJ, April 3, 2007 ( – On Thursday, March 22, officials at Burlington Township High School enlisted the help of two local policemen to carry out a mock ‘hostage situation’ drill at their school.

The drill invoked disapproval from Christian students as the student body was told that the alleged gunmen were “members of a right-wing fundamentalist group called the 'New Crusaders' who don't believe in separation of church and state.”

According to a report in the local paper, The Burlington County Times, the mock gunmen pretended to gun down several students in the hallways before taking 10 students hostage in the school’s media center. Given that the drill was intended to test the disaster response of students, faculty and local emergency personnel, county officers were dispatched during the drill to realistically execute an emergency evacuation of the building.

The drill organizers explained that the supposedly Christian gunmen “went to the school seeking justice because the daughter of one had been expelled for praying before class.”

School Superintendent Chris Manno praised the drill beforehand explaining that “You perform as you practice. We need to practice under conditions as real as possible in order to evaluate our procedures and plans so that they're as effective as possible.”

Bob Pawson, National Coordinator of the Scriptures in School Project, denied that the drill portrayed a possible reality and instead asserted that the drill was used as an excuse to denigrate Christians. “So what allegedly real condition was imagineered? A grotesque scenario saturated with Christian-bashing prejudice and bigotry; a scenario which could never possibly occur.”

Christian students have actually been kicked out of school for praying here in America. In fact it has happened within the last year. This has happened more than once. Another girl was suspended for reading the Bible.

Yes, things like this do actually happen. But, to date, no Christian terrorist group has taken over a school and murdered students or faculty as a result.

However, Islamofascists terrorists did take over a school in Beslan, Russia, and they murdered over 300 students and faculty. They forced children to drink urine. They physically and sexually abused little girls.

But, we can't mention that, can we?
