If you can't provide the science, threaten the scientists

That seems to be the logic of some Creationists in Boulder, Colorado.

Threats by religious group spark probe at CU-Boulder

University of Colorado police are investigating a series of threatening messages and documents e-mailed to and slipped under the door of evolutionary biology labs on the Boulder campus.

The messages included the name of a religious-themed group and addressed the debate between evolution and creationism, CU police Cmdr. Brad Wiesley said. Wiesley would not identify the group named because police are still investigating.

"There were no overt threats to anybody specifically by name," Wiesley said. "It basically said anybody who doesn't believe in our religious belief is wrong and should be taken care of."

The part I quoted, was about half the article in the Denver Post, the only newspaper in which I can find the story. What would you bet that it would have been much bigger news if it had been a Muslim group that threatened scientists that didn't believe in the same as they did?
