Someone at Virginia's Mary Washington University apparently obtained a computer password and sent out an email to the entire student body. The message reads in part: "A message to all liberals, atheists, God-haters, gays, Europeans and Democrats. As you may well know, the victory of the Great George W Bush has swept the land to give a glorious victory to the righteous against the forces of Evil Liberalism in all its present forms."

Um.... Okay.

Campus police are investigating the case, and the department's police chief says that the crime of "theft of computer services" is a misdemeanor punishable by 12 months in jail and a $2500 fine.

What the chief apparently doesn't realize is that if a crime is committed by a religious nutcase in the name of the Almighty, then it's not actually a crime.
