Rachel Maddow

Christian-heavy-metal rocker Bradlee Dean's menacingly-named You Can Run But You Can't Hide ministry is suing Rachel Maddow and MSNBC for defamation. According to Dean, Maddow misrepresented his views on the execution of homosexuals. He was simply stating that Muslims want to kill the gays. No harm in that. But Dean doesn't deny saying the following on a radio show:

Muslims are calling for the execution for homosexuals in America, this was just released yesterday and it shows you that they themselves are upholding the laws that are even in the Bible, the Judeo Christian God. They seem to be more moral than even the American Christians do.

What he does claim is that Maddow edited it make it seem like he really, really approved of killing people based on their sexual orientation (you know, as opposed to only acknowledging the upright morality of same) in an attempt to take down his ministry and their political candidate of choice, Michele Bachmann. Though with statements like the above, I'm not sure they need any help in bringing about their own demise.
