Top 10 Christian bashing moments of 2008

The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission includes a questionable Sarah Palin entry:

#2: Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin is Attacked

Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, came under sharp attack by some in the mainstream media because she self-identifies as a Christian. The Washington Post published a cartoon by Pat Oliphant mocking Palin because she has a background as a Pentecostal/Charistmatic Christian. A suspicious arson fire at Sarah Palin's home church recently caused over $1,000,000 in damage.

(Ea.) Whether or not her Christianity is why she was attacked is debatable, to say the least. But even conceding the assumption, couldn't they have come up with something more defamey-like than a cartoon in a liberal paper and an arson in her home state?
