My UJ Name is The Hand Grenade of Courteous Debate; what's yours?

As seems the norm, I'm late to the party on this one.

Jon Carroll's piece in the San Francisco Chronicle follows up on an e-mail making it's way across the web (at least if your SpamBlocker hasn't blocked it).

Greetings to the Imprisoned Citizens of the United States! Too long has your attention been waylaid by the bright baubles of extremist thought. Too long have fundamentalist yahoos of all religions (except Buddhism -- 14-5 vote, no abstentions, fundamentalism subcommittee) made your head hurt. Too long have you been buffeted by angry people who think that God talks to them. You have a right to your moderation! You have the power to be calm! We will use the IED of truth to explode the SUV of dogmatic expression!
So, much as the Islamic badguys want to do, these folks (with tongue firmly planted in cheek, of course) want to convert all of us. One of their first tasks is to change our Christian names.

Thanks to the wonder of the internet, you can find our your Unitarian Jihad Name.

I ran it, and have been dubbed The Hand Grenade of Courteous Debate.

Works for me. Head on over and get yours, and let me know here what you have been dubbed.
