This story is not meant to be blasphemous. There is much good in all major religions (whether you believe in the existence of God or not). "Thou shall not kill" and "treat others as you would like to be treated" are at the top of my list ... However, there are the misguided, such as Al Qaeda. But there are other kinds of religious zealots too -- in the puritanical sense -- and that's what this story is about. If I offend anyone, I sincerely apologize.
