The biggest problem is, that there are a lot of Christians out there.
And then, there are a lot of people that claim to be Christians. There's quite a difference. I personally believe that Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson are going to get a huge and rather nasty surprise someday at the end of their lives. There's a lot of groups that take a view, then narrow it down to fine points, then take the extreme view on those narrow points, and then give themselves a label that makes a lot more people look bad, as well as their own cause. I believe in being humane towards animals for example, but I despise PETA. I believe in the right to own guns and hunting, but I'll never join the NRA, and I believe in the Bill of Rights, but I'll never be a card-carrying member of the ACLU. In the same way, I may hold to a percentage of the views of the Christian Coalition, but chances are good that the remainder of their views is total malarkey in my eyes, though I am a Christian. Chances are good that a few people who barely understand technology in the Christian Coalition have had the words "child porn downloading" whispered in their ears over and over again by the RIAA, and it scared them.
I also believe it's definitely high fashion for the news media of today to take even the loosest links between religion of any kind and an issue that may be hot-button already, and attempt to inflate it far beyond what it is. In the article, the RIAA & legal team made plenty of statement. Doesn't look like anyone in the Christian Coalition was quoted one way or the other, but I'd argue (whether the Christian Coalition is a good or bad organization) that it could easily be possible that someone at Ziff-Davis didn't like them very much, and it made a little more kindling for the fire. Makes you miss people like Murrow and Cronkite, or at least it does for me.
I think the administration's "turning things into a religious matter" is to some extent stretched by the media too, and the voices that are the loudest tend to carry the furthest of course.
