Actually that's the way Reed figured out how to defeat Gladiator, because there's no way he could pick up the building like that. So Reed concluded he's using some sort of telekinesis to protect himself and deal damage, so they distracted him and Susan knocked him out. Some day I want to have that entire Byrne run, its so well done.
By the way, if you pick up a copy, it helps the sales (and hence, the wallet of both me and Hero Games, who gets a cut) if you drop a review on the site.
I'll refer again to the episode of On the Media I linked to a couple pages back. Christianity does have a longstanding persecution complex. (Though many Christians resist it; and one might argue that to see Jesus as persecuted is a deep misunderstanding of the Sacrifice of Christ.) Now, Christians *are* persecuted in some parts of the world, but the USA is not one of those places.
For comparison, I heard "Islamism" explained like this: A Muslim is a person who believes in and practices Islam. An Islamist is a person who believes Islam should hold institutional dominance over the rest of society. You can be a Muslim without being an Islamist (and many Muslims are).
The sort of Evangelicals who rage at a supposed "war on Christianity" may or may not be Christians; that is between them and God. But they sure seem to be "Christianists," more interested in institutional power than the saving of souls. Which from my outsider's perspective seems doctrinally dubious, given Jesus' repeated scorn for worldly power.
