Jibbenainosay offers his condolences. He grew up in the woods of Kentucky, which teem with Baptists, and he hates to see them led into unhealthy places by their government's encouragement of faith-based initiatives.

Still: "Four U.S. Baptist missionaries have died after a drive-by shooting in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the U.S. military said today. A fifth missionary was wounded. The missionaries were working on a water-purification project, church officials and friends said."

A "water-purification project"? Baptists? Surely this is a euphemism.
