Barone: Warming cult like zealots of old

Take a walk down Maxim Gun Memory Lane.

Barone writes in Investor’s Business Daily:

Religious faith is a source of strength in many people’s lives. But religious faith when taken too far can prove ludicrous — or disastrous…

In 1898, the cavalrymen of the Madhi, ruler of Sudan for 13 years, went into the Battle of Omdurman armed with swords, believing that they were impervious to bullets. They weren’t, and they were mowed down by British Maxim guns.

A similar but more peaceable fate is befalling believers in what I think can be called the religion of the global warming alarmists.

Check out some good ‘ol boys firing an 1898 Maxim gun.
