Paranoia Watch

This article in LifeSiteNews warns darkly that the latest Defense Authorization Act would allow President Obama to detain pro-lifers indefinitely. Huh?

I know my colleague John Allen has devised the useful, and sadly appropriate moniker "Taliban Catholics" for groups like those who follow LifeSiteNews regularly, but this is ridiculous. I especially like the breezy way they dismiss President Obama's signing statement in which the President said he would not use the authority granted him to detain U.S. citizens. These people are crazy.
