Colonials didn't have closets. (They were essentially "invented" in the Victorian era).

I wonder about the author's credibility when, in another article, he makes this statement:

the events of 11 September ultimately were allowed to occur due to the sins of our nation: i.e. abortion, rampant homosexuality, promiscuity, etc. A nation blessed by God would not have suffered such an awful attack.
I dislike "blame the victim" mentality, as well as the assumptions upon which his statement is based.
"As I looked at my two young sons, each with his gun, and considered how much the safety of the party depended on these little fellows, I felt grateful to you, dear husband, for having acquainted them in childhood with the use of firearms."

-- Elisabeth Robinson, in The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann Wyss

Yep I stopped going to my old church because of people holding those types of beliefs. I think Farwell put it stupider when he also blamed the ACLU.
