Not zombies? Maybe not, but certainly brainwashed cultists. The MSM keep citing the 9/11 bombers' attendance at strip clubs and bars before their mass murder as evidence of their acculturation, but I think that's a mistake. The Wahhabist folk-Islam these losers followed is a sort of Monotheism for Dummies, and they are condemned to make every mistake and practice every heresy that has ever troubled Christianity and Judaism.

What they practiced is the heresy of Antinomianism. This is the belief that the elect cannot be damned, no matter what they do, because God has willed their salvation. The 9/11 hijackers believed that they could enjoy the fleshpots of New Jersey and still attain paradise, for all their sins would be forgiven when they sacrificed themselves for Allah. They believed that they also had earned similar "get-out-of-jail-free" cards that would let them redeem a number of their friends and relatives, as the reward for their self-sacrifice.

This belief, of course, reduces the Almighty to the status of a rather large vending machine. You put in your coins of righteous deeds, pull the lever, and pick up your salvation in the tray below. If that isn't blasphemy, then I don't know what would qualify.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but taking on the appearance of "worldliness" and Western acculturation provides excellent protective coloration. If you're on the hunt for Muslim religious fanatics, you might just shift a whiskey-drinking, strip-club-frequenting guy to the bottom of the pile.
