Terry Jones: Baseball not necessarily of the devil

I doubt any religious extremists willing to do violence over the burning of their holy text read this blog. But, for the record, in America, dudes with mustaches like this typically don't speak for anyone but themselves.

From CBS News:
Last month, in a deposition from a court case in which (Gainesville, Fla., pastor Terry) Jones was a witness, attorney Michael Spellman asked Jones what else he believed was "of the devil."

Q. And you believe that everything that is not from God is of the devil. Is that right?

A. Yeah, I guess so. Uh-huh. Then again, it depends on what you're talking about. I don't believe necessarily baseball is from the devil because it's not from God. But I mean, basically in general, I believe that if it's not from God, it's from the devil. Right.

Q. Is Hinduism of the devil?

A. Yes, of course.

Q. Buddhism?

A. .Yeah.

Q. How about Judaism?

A. Yes.
You can download the 117-page deposition via the CBS link. The suit deals, at least in part, with students wearing T-shirts to school in Alachua County, Fla., proclaiming Islam to be of the devil.

Which makes you wonder: Aren't T-shirts also of the devil? And, since Jesus was Jewish ...
