Fundamentalism gone awry

I read a funny item from 2002 yesterday which shows the extremism to which some people can take things. It is titled Why Can't I Own a Canadian.

Taken out of context we can run afoul of the most well meaning things.

One of the items it contains reads as follows:

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

Why don't we sacrifice bulls anymore?

Or any of the other things referenced?

I guess if you have to think about this too long, we need to have a talk. Maybe it has something to do with Romans 10:4.
