On the front page of today’s paper, the New York Times offered the headline “In Large Immigrant Family, Religion Guided 3 Held in Fort Dix Plot” for an article about the men arrested for plotting a terror attack against soldiers in New Jersey. Inside the paper, another headline reads, “Suspects Are Described as Working People for Whom Religion Was a Guide.”

It is curious that the Times twice uses the word “religion” to describe what influences the men, and doesn’t use the term radical Islam in either headline. This fits the agenda of those such as Christopher Hitchens and other secularists who blame all religions for many of the world’s ills.
